Youri Tielemans Inching Towards North London Move

Following their acquisition of Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City, Arsenal is optimistic that a £30 million transfer for Youri Tielemans will be completed.

The Gunners had Gabriel Jesus of Manchester City as their top target. Now that the deal is out of the way, they will be looking to strengthen their midfield. They lack a creative presence from deep, and Youri Tielemans can fill that void. 

Tielemans has one year left on his Leicester contract. The Belgian has indicated that he will not sign an extension to stay with the Foxes. 

[a move] is not out of the question. But I can also stay. I feel very good at Leicester, I was welcomed with open arms from day one. I give everything for the club until the last day. But of course you have to listen to other opportunities, you have to look at your career, and sometimes you have to make choices. Maybe one will come my way.

Tielemans Deal: Closer Than Ever?

Arsenal had a long-standing interest in Tielemans. However, the last few weeks have been very cold without any news on this transfer. It brought other clubs in the fray. Manchester United are reportedly interested in him, with the deal for Frenkie De Jong looking bleak.

The Sun, however, reports that Arsenal has increased their interest in Tielemans. They have reportedly agreed on personal terms already. Now, the 25-year-old is close to agreeing to a £30 million deal. After Tielemans is over the line, Arteta will compete against United once more for Ajax defender Lisandro Martinez.

Tielemans can be a fantastic addition to the North London club’s midfield. Granit Xhaka has shown to be unreliable at times, while Mohammed Elneny is not at the level Arsenal fans want. Speculation has risen over Thomas Partey’s participation next season, while Lokong is quite raw. Tielemans can easily slot into their team and improve its level.
