Arsenal and Spurs set to battle it out for proven PL midfielder

Tottenham Hotspur have emerged as contenders for Leicester City star Youri Tielemans, a player believed to be on Arsenal’s radar also.

The Gunner have been strongly linked with a move for the Belgian international in recent months, with him believed to be open to quitting the club in the near future.

With just one year remaining on his current deal, this summer looks like a great opportunity to tempt his current club into a sale, knowing fully well that they could potentially lose their star for nothing in 12 month’s time.

The Metro quotes ESPN in claiming that Tottenham now rank Tielemans amongst their main targets this summer, which could well lead to a battle between us and our noisy neighbours, and the player will have to decide whether his priority would be to play in the Champions League this season, or to potentially win trophies with his next club.

I could understand why it would seem attractive to play under a top manager like Antonio Conte, but you can’t be expecting them to win anything any time soon nor can you expect the Italian boss to still be around in another year or two, but what we are building on the red side of London is a long-term project which should look attractive to any serious players who are looking to join a top club.

Should it be easy for most players to decide between the two clubs?

  1. I’m afred of the delay we are doing in transfer and this always cause us to miss on our planned target and it’s going to happen again if we are not care full.

  2. To be honest I have not been all that impressed by the players linked with us.
    Aside from Jesus none of them will allow us to take that next step.
    Tielemans has been pretty average for Leicester (who have been average themselves) and players like Hickey, Calvert Lewin and Abrahams do not really inspire.
    Early days of course but you get the feel that missing out on the last day is really going to impact on our plans…

    1. Got to agree
      Tielemans is a very underwhelming target ,imagine a midfield consisting of xkaka Tielemans and Odegaard ,I have and it fills me with dread .
      We need some pace and power not another player who’s good at recycling the ball sideways .

  3. Arsenal could do worse than look at Australian international midfielder Tom Rogic, who is leaving Glasgow Celtic at his request on a free transfer to pursue further challenges. The “Wizard of Oz” still has a few years left after 9 years as an attacking midfielder at Celtic

    1. Tom Rogic is 29yo, 6’2″ tall and scored 46 goals in 273 appearances for Glasgow Celtic.
