Arsenal: Youri Tielemans wants Gunners move

Arsenal: Youri Tielemans wants Gunners move -Arsenal News

Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans wants to complete a move to Arsenal in the summer transfer window, according to journalist Ben Jacobs.

The Lowdown: Tielemans a summer target

The Belgian has arguably grown into one of the Premier League‘s best midfielders in recent years, proving to be a key man for the Foxes under Brendan Rodgers, who has described him as ‘outstanding’ and even one of the best in Europe.

Tielemans has continually been linked with a move to Arsenal this summer, as Mikel Arteta looks to make a significant midfield signing.

Leicester are proving to be stubborn when it comes to letting the 25-year-old leave the club but it seems clear what the player himself wants to happen in the coming weeks.

The Latest: Midfielder wants move

Speaking to Give Me Sport, Jacobs claimed that Tielemans wants to be an Arsenal player imminently, having agreed personal terms with the Gunners already:

“As Leicester have said and as I’ve said repeatedly, Arsenal have never made an offer for Youri Tielemans.

“What they have done is gone to the player and agreed personal terms, broadly speaking. What they do know is that Tielemans would like to move to Arsenal.”

The Verdict: Final piece of the jigsaw?

Arsenal have spent well this summer, bringing in the likes of Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko, but they are still arguably missing a box-to-box midfielder of Tielemans’ ilk.

Should Arsenal keep Tavares?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The Belgium international is a force both on and off the ball, scoring six goals and chipping in with four assists in the league last season, as well as averaging 2.3 tackles per game, and he could bring an all-round quality that arguably nobody else at the Emirates possesses.

With Arsenal’s defence and attack both looking strong, and with Martin Odegaard and Fabio Vieira providing craft behind the front-line, Tielemans could be the final piece of the jigsaw, completing the midfield and bringing balance to it.
