Arsenal considers Premier League ace too expensive

Reports have linked arsenal with a move for Youri Tielemans for much of this transfer window and some even suggested a deal is imminent with Leicester City for his signature.

The Belgian is one of Arsenal’s top targets and they have been pursuing a transfer for him for a long time.

Mikel Arteta has bolstered his squad with many players, but Tielemans remains one key piece that could make them even stronger.

The former AS Monaco man is doing his best to leave Leicester, and he has refused to sign a contract extension.

With less than a year left on his current deal, we expected the Foxes to accept a cut-price offer to offload him.

However, that is not the case and they are holding out for a huge fee.

This is now likely to scupper their chances of selling him and The Athletic says Arsenal believes he is too expensive.

This means they could decide against signing him this summer and move for him when he becomes a free agent next year, instead.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Adding Tielemans to our squad could make us serious title challengers because the Belgian is talented and experienced.

However, with less than a year left on his current deal, it makes little sense to sign him for a huge fee.

Alfie and Rob are back with the Just Arsenal Show and today they discuss three players who are seemingly on their way out.

  1. This is your only chance – pay the £40m or stop talking about it. No way he wants to go to Arsenal he wants to win trophies and play champions league. I think he would prefer champions league with Real Madrid on a free next summer.

    1. Bob the Leicester fan, terms already agreed between him and Arsenal BUT, the asking price is way over the top and as we are not desperate for him could get him free next year. If he goes to RM then no problem and good luck to him😊

    2. No chance we will or should spend £40m on Tielmans. We are pushing up against FFP and want a winger as well as cm/dm

  2. Don’t think we need to spend 40m or 50m on him. There is other options that are a simular level. 20m and yes all day everyday if not patience. Get Mr right not Mr right now

  3. Tielemans is badly over price and I hope we leave him alone.

    I strongly believe if Arsenal should invest 100 quid more we could really complicate things come the end of the season when the title being decided.

    Adding Neto and Savic could take us extremely close

  4. This is typical Arsenal if we want him and we do pay the money. When Partey gets injured Arsenal fans we be shouting why didnt we sign Tielemans

  5. In his last year already! Liecester he’s leaving now for £23 mill or nothing end of season! Your choice!!!

  6. So it looks like we will not buy the final pieces of our Arsenal team jigsaw. How sad that would be. All those good buys and then some injuries and fatigue and the whole season will be in vain. Finish the jigsaw Edu!

  7. If Tielemanns is not possible because of Leicester Citys high asking price then Arsenal should IMO go for an exciting player like Mykhaylo Mudryk if possible.
    Could we get Mykhaylo Mudryk and Zaha over the line, we would be a very strong team with good players in every postion. Top 4 would be very realistic.

    1. Those 2 are wingers and I suspect Edu/Arteta going for winger first anyway. We don’t know what we have left for midfielder (within FFP) until we know cost of winger + AMN and Hector leaving for sure is another factor

  8. Arsenal are playing this smart. If he’s not available cheap, move on. I’d much rather not even buy another CM this summer and just get a DM and a winger. We don’t need Tielemans. Not as big of an upgrade over Xhaka as people would like to think.
