Report: Arsenal are now truly convinced they can sign 'incredible' player, he wants to join the Gunners
According to The Mirror, Arsenal are now convinced they can sign Youri Tielemans from Leicester City, and the Belgian wants to join the Gunners as well.
Mikel Arteta has Thomas Partey, Granit Xhaka, Albert Sambi Lokonga and Mohamed Elneny at his disposal at the moment.
Injuries have really troubled the Ghanaian since his move from Atletico Madrid, while the Swiss international, despite a great season, continues to divide opinion.
Lokonga is still young and not ready to become the main man, while Elneny, despite a strong end to the campaign and signing a new contract, is not the first choice.
Arsenal are almost guaranteed to sign a new midfielder this summer, and it looks like Tielemans is the man.
Youri Tielemans wants to join Arsenal
Tielemans will soon enter the final year of his contract at Leicester and he has no interest in extending his deal. The Belgian has been absolutely incredible for the Foxes over the last few years, and he is a wanted man this summer.
After Arsenal missed out on Champions League football, there were concerns over Tielemans’ interest in leaving Leicester to join the Gunners. However, that isn’t a worry anymore, claims the report.
Tielemans reportedly wants to join the Gunners despite the fact that they will be playing in the Europa League next season. That has filled Arsenal with confidence, and they are now convinced they can seal a deal.
The report claims that Arsenal will try to secure Tielemans’ services for a fee in the region of £25 million, which would be a bargain for a player of his quality.
Arsenal really do need a top-quality number eight this summer, and there aren’t many achievable targets who are better than Tielemans.
The Belgian, branded as an ‘incredible talent’ by Michael Dawson, knows the Premier League really well, having played 120 times in the English top-flight since joining the Foxes from Monaco.
He can play anywhere across central midfield, can score goals, create chances, and despite only being 25 years old, he has tons of experience under his belt having played over 450 games for club and country over the years.
Tielemans would be a fantastic signing for Arsenal, and if Edu can get him for around £25 million, it could prove to be one of the best bargains of the upcoming summer transfer window.
