Arsenal have reportedly won the race to sign Youri Tielemans in the next summer transfer window. He will sign for them on a free transfer.

However, a number of sides will keep on trying to convince the Belgian midfielder till the last minute. A number of top European sides remain interested.


According to reports, Arsenal have made an agreement with the agent of Youri Tielemans to sign him on a free transfer in the next summer transfer window. The report also claims that the midfielder has said no to the latest contract extension proposal from Leicester City. He also feels that the Foxes have not invested money on players this summer to take the club to next level.

Hence, the midfielder is now desperate to sign for Arsenal. Although, he will have to wait till the end of the season to announce his decision. Manchester United and Newcastle United also showed interest in the midfielder. However, the midfielder dreams of a move to the Gunners. The Gunners manager Mikel Arteta also likes the idea of signing Tielemans on a free transfer.


Football pundit Darren Bent has said that Arsenal should sign him for a bargain fee in the January transfer window to avoid competition. He further said,

“Thomas Partey is the most important part of that Arsenal team. When he’s fit and firing like he is at the minute, Arsenal look like a completely different outfit. “Xhaka looks completely different, the back four look more comfortable, belief what’s in front of them. “I would try and get someone like Youri Tielemans.

He also said that a bid of 20 million bid would be sufficient to sign the midfielder in January. Barcelona manager Xavi is also looking to approach him in the next summer transfer window to sign him on a free transfer. Hence, the Gunners must make a move in January to avoid the interest of the La Liga giants. Youri Tielemans value is also going to go up if he performs well at the World Cup this year.

Hence, Arsenal must start laying down the groundwork to sign Youri Tielemans in January. Mikel Arteta is looking to sign a new midfielder in the January transfer window. Hence, the signing of Youri Tielemans will certainly make them title challengers alongside Manchester City.
