In addition, Ainsley Maitland-Niles has joined Roma on loan.

Tielemans is a talented, highly rated midfielder who’d be a superb shout for Arsenal.

The Belgium international has just 18 months left on his contract and probably won’t sign an extension, reports Goal.com.

Clubs across Europe are positioning themselves to land the Belgium international and Arsenal apparently want to be in the mix.

Discussions have reportedly taken place with the 24-year-old’s representatives at London Colney in recent weeks to explore the situation.

The Goal.com report claims a January move is unlikely, with Leicester expected to keep hold of him as they look to convince him to sign a new deal.

However, Arsenal apparently believe they could be an appealing option for the midfielder in the summer, especially if they can offer him Champions League football.

Here’s what some Arsenal fans have made of the speculation:
