There are few players in world football that at face value look perfect for Arsenal, and Youri Tielemans is certainly one of them.
The Belgian international has been thriving with Leicester City this season since his move to the Foxes from Monaco on loan in January, and Tielemans’ performances have many fans across the Premier League hoping their team will go in for the midfielder this summer, and none so more than Arsenal supporters.
The Daily Star have also reported that the Gunners, as well as Manchester United and Tottenham, are interested in signing the 21-year-old midfielder from Monaco this summer, and with a valuation of £19.8 million on Transfermarkt, Tielemans is well in Arsenal’s price range.
As well as being affordable, Tielemans would be a game-changing signing for Arsenal. The Gunners have lacked a midfielder who can control the tempo of the game and create chances for attacking players in the final third, and the Belgian would be a signing that could keep Alexandre Lacazette at the club.
The Frenchman has recently been linked with a big money move to Barcelona by the Express, but if Emery is able to court Tielemans over to north London it could open Lacazette’s mind up to stay with the Gunners.
Emery faces a massive rebuilding job this summer with new figures a must at the club as well as under-performing players needing to be moved on, and Tielemans would be a player that will solve not only an existing problem but also keep one of Arsenal’s most important stars in north London for the future.
Arsenal fans, should Emery make Tielemans a priority this summer? Let us know!
