Arsenal confident they can sign midfielder sooner than we think

Youri Tielemans has been around the top of Arsenal’s shopping list in the last few months, and he could finally seal the transfer to the Emirates soon.

The midfielder has been one of the finest in the Premier League over the years, but his future could be away from Leicester City.

His current deal with the Foxes expires in 2023, and they have been looking to get him on a new deal.

However, he appears reluctant to stay at the home of the former Premier League champions, which has opened the door for him to join Arsenal instead.

HLN, as reported by Sport Witness, claims the Gunners are accelerating their bid to add him to their squad.

It says they are confident of completing his transfer almost immediately, and it could happen as soon as this international break is over.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Tielemans would be a great addition to our squad and making him our first summer arrival will give the fans confidence that they mean business.

We fell short of a place in the top four last season, and Tielemans is a player that can add the extra bit of quality we need to secure a UCL spot.

  1. Vision, awareness, clever and definitely skillful!

    Get him signed up yesterday!!

    Seriously though, Tielemans has been one of those players I would have loved to have had for a while now. I’m always impressed by him. I am a little surprised though that there isn’t a que forming for his services? Maybe we already have our foot in the door? Unless I hear otherwise, I would be over the moon to see him in red and white next season!

  2. Bring him along with Sergev Milinkovic, Cody Gakpo or Serge Gnabry or Diaby or even Nkunku if possible. Get a good striker

  3. @GunnerRay
    When he played for Anderlecht, he was on fire. Thats when he really looked interesting. Once he left, he just looks ordinary to me…IJS

    1. You really thing he looks ordinary? He would be a massive upgrade if he was partnering Partey in my opinion.

      Who would you like to see us bring in if not Youri Tielemans?

      1. @GunnerRay
        I remember when he played for Anderlecht and they beat us. Dude was all over our midfield like a bad rash. After a spell at Monaco and now at LC, to me he seems bang average. Especially in comparison to his Anderlecht days…I’d rather we went for Sander Berge…IJS

        1. Tielemans partnered with Xhaka would be a dream signing …… for all our opponents next season .

            1. He’s a good solid player NYG who scores goals and recycles the ball well but his lack of physically and pace is something we already have in Xhaka and Odegaard,maybe Arteta likes these kinds of players as it reminds him of himself .
              I would take him instead of xkaka if he was moving on but that’s highly doubtful.
              Pairing him with Odegaard as 2 number 8s with Xhaka behind really fills me with dread .

              1. @Dan Kit
                Like I said, I saw all of that in him during his Anderlecht days. Especially when they played us. I just don’t see it now…

                1. NY_Gunner, I agree with you on this one. Mostly his consistency I dont think is there. And also think he had more of a spark prior to his transfer to Leicester.

              2. I usually agree with your posts but in this case I can see your point, but I would love to have him, as a starter so that xhaka moves to the bench. I think he will be a great signing if he is utilized properly. That means that the trio you mention should never play together. My assumption is that we are going for two midfielders and both of them will compete for starting spots. Dm will be Partey (lokonga/El neny backups) and tielemans, xhaka, new signing (zinchenko rumours for example), odegaard will compete for the two spots in front of him. If the other player is pacy and/or strong, a decent midfield can be formed. But I do agree that having 3 slow players in the starting eleven would be catastrophic.

      2. Definitely Tielemans absolute great talent and playing for Belgium with De Bruyne unbelievable duo,GRAB TIELEMANS NOW BEFORE ITS TO LATE,TYPICAL MANAGEMENT POLICY

    It’s frustrating watching other teams making acquisitions while Arsenal is sitting on their hands.

  5. Moves like this should be completed early since the selling clubs are under pressure to sell,it’s just like the same case with haaland and nunez.come to think of it he’ll be available a lot cheaper unlike those two but i guess it has to do with the no cl football or wage demands.hopefully he finds us attractive now that real madrid have signed tchouameni.

  6. “Sooner than we think”

    A fast signing at Arsenal is anything prior to the last 6 hours of the transfer window.

  7. Well Arsenal have signed 3 players in all, but none have addressed our major issues, the midfield and CF,

    I really think 💭 we need 2 strong and fast midfielders,
    If I had my way, It would be Amadou Onana/Savic and Lucas Parquet/Nkunku with Raphinah and Jovic on loan or Andre Silva.

    The way the EPL clubs are making statements is scary,

    Arsenal must brace up, else we would be struggling for 6th place.

  8. You obviously haven’t seen Tielemans play recently. You’re going to get a shock. Leicester reckon if they can get £30m for him they can replace him with a better player
