'Been told': Fabrizio Romano has some good news for Arsenal fans
Arsenal have reportedly got one midfield signing over the line this summer.
Multiple reports have claimed that the Gunners have landed Porto’s Fabio Vieira.
This led to questions among fans regarding Arsenal’s pursuit of Leicester’s Youri Tielemans.
With the Vieira deal apparently done, would the Gunners look to also bring the Belgium star to the Emirates?
According to Fabrizio Romano, yes they would.
On Friday evening, as well as ‘confirming’ the Vieira deal, the transfer guru also provided an update on Tielemans.
However, on Friday night, there was an apparent twist.
Sky Sports claimed Arsenal had cooled their interest in Tielemans.
Worse still, it could potentially pave the way for the Belgian to pen an extension at Leicester.
But in the early hours of Saturday morning, Romano took to Twitter with a claim Arsenal fans would love.
Namely that Tielemans isn’t considering an extension in the current transfer window, he claimed.
And while the Gunners haven’t made an official bid yet, they’re still working on it.
Tielemans is a world-class talent who would bolster any team.
And the fact his contract expires next year means Leicester’s hand isn’t very strong in negotiations.
But Arsenal really need to get a move on because they won’t be the only suitors.
