Arsenal reportedly expects to sign midfielder Youri Tielemans in the January transfer window. Hence, they will also beat the competition of Barcelona for the Belgian midfielder.

It is because the midfielder prefers a move to the Premier League giants. Hence, it looks like Leicester City will also ask for a small fee for the soon-out-of-contract fielder.


Arsenal are reportedly going to sign midfielder Youri Tielemans in the January transfer. The report also claims that Leicester City are going to ask a small fee for their Belgian midfielder. This is because his contract is going to end in the next summer transfer window. Hence, it looks like the foxes will sell him for a less fee rather than losing him on a free transfer. The report also confirms that Barcelona were also looking at him as a potential January transfer option.

However, the midfielder himself prefers a move to the Gunners in January. The report also confirms that they have already agreed on personal terms with the club. Hence, the player and agent terms should not be a problem for Arsenal. A number of reports also claim that the Gunners are going to pay 20 million for the Belgian midfielder. Hence, Leicester City should be happy to get such a fee for the soon-out-of-contract midfielder the next summer.


A number of reports claim that Mikel Arteta is open to selling Albert Sambi Lokonga in January. Arsenal were also open to selling him in the last summer transfer window. However, they could not sell him as they failed to find an agreement for Douglas Luiz. Hence, Albert Sambi Lokonga had to stay at the club. This was despite some serious interest from AC Milan and several La Liga clubs. The Belgian midfielder has not played many games in the first half of the season.

Hence, the potential signing of Tielemans will surely open up the opportunity for Lokonga to leave the Premier League giants. Arsenal are open to selling or loaning him out. However, the loan deal should have a mandatory option to buy him next season. Hence, it is clear that Mikel Arteta does not see Lokonga as part of his plans for the future. Many fans expected Lokonga to be a future star midfielder for Arsenal. However, it has not ended up being a great transfer for all the parties.

Arsenal will hope that they can find some success with the signing of Youri Tielemans. Tielemans will potentially try to beat Granit Xhaka and Thomas Partey and Mohammed Elneny for the starting spot. One thing is for sure he will increase the squad’s depth for the remainder of the season. He will also settle in quickly as he knows the Premier League.
