Arsenal handed a boost in their bid to sign Tielemans

Arsenal has been handed a boost in their bid to add Youri Tielemans to their squad in this transfer window.

The Gunners have held a long-standing interest in the Belgian midfielder, and this summer is probably their best chance to add him to their squad.

Arsenal have not made an official move for Tielemans yet, with several reports claiming Leicester City doesn’t want to sell him, so they will likely demand a big transfer fee to allow him to leave.

However, it seems the Foxes will soon concede defeat in their bid to make him stay.

A report on The Sun claims they are targeting a move for Lyon’s Houssem Aouar as his replacement.

The Frenchman was on the radar of Arsenal for a long time, but it seems they will be happy to see him join Leicester if it would make it easier for them to sign Tielemans.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Tielemans’ Premier League experience makes him one of the players we should sign and he would almost certainly make an instant impact.

The Belgian is a top player, and he is certainly better than playing for his present employers.

But we have bolstered our midfield with some fine performers and our squad might become bloated if we do not sell first.

  1. The Belgian midfielder is certainly a missing link in the chain to secure more goals from the deep mid of the pitch. Thomas Partey and even Elnemy have not converted opportunities for goals from that area.
    Youri Tielemans will certainly be a valuable addition for the mid position and might even surpass the expectation and valuation for him at this time.
    I would certainly welcome Youri Tielemans.

    1. Bang on the mark, Partey’s finishing is shocking, Tilemans would add that bit extra of options in attack

  2. If Tielemns is that good why is nobody else interested ?
    He looks a playmaker but not a tackler.

    1. We used to have players like Roben Pires, who was good at contributing to goals and was not good at tackling, same as Arteta when he was playing for us. These were the players who were good at creating more goals opportunities.

  3. Just when you thought we were having a good transfer window, interest in Tielemans rears its ugly head again.

    Is he being bought to back up Odegaard? I thought that would be Viara’s role.

    In my view, Yuri is the archetypal “Flat Track Bully”

    He looks good against the weaker teams.

    He is not as quick as he looks. In addition, at Leicester, he just does not track back enough.

    I do not think he will improve the team!!!!

    Again, I believe we should spend that money on a Partey type player

    1. I guess your not more than a Man utd fan, hmmm!!, Yuri is a proven midfielder with a wide premiere league experience, quick and faster than the likes of Granite Xhaka. To me he would make a perfect combination with Thomas Partey with Viera ahead of them.

  4. Has anyone imagined what will happen to the squad when Partey is injured? Can this guy play 6 or we should rely on Elneney. We need a Partey cover/competition.

  5. Tilemens, Diaby, and still need proper dm slot, would have gone for Onana but that ship has sailed, one stand out dm for me that could boss it in the premiership Sangare all day long. Guys a beast, something we really need.

  6. But if u analyse critically party is not a dm is abox to box midfielder just like tielemans
