Arsenal is no longer keen to add Youri Tielemans to their squad, according to journalist Dean Jones.
The Gunners have had the Belgian on their shopping list for a long time, but in the last two transfer windows, they did not make a serious effort to sign him.
It seemed they were waiting to add him to their squad as a free agent, but it has now been revealed that he does not appeal to them as much as he did in 2021.
Having targeted the likes of Douglas Luiz and Moises Caicedo instead, Jones reveals they might not fight for Tielemans even when he becomes a free agent in the summer.
He writes on Give Me Sport:
“Full background checks of the player have already been observed and there are good references in terms of his character and suitability. Yet as they contemplate how to keep the team moving forwards there needs to be a final decision on whether he can elevate them in terms of European standing.
“The current feeling is that the club will probably look elsewhere for midfield reinforcements, despite the finances attached.”
Just Arsenal Opinion
Tielemans has been superb for Leicester City for much of his time in England and wants to join a bigger club.
The Belgian has had better times in the competition but does not seem to be at his best in the last two seasons.
This has made him unappealing and Arsenal certainly will not want to add him to their squad just for the sake of it.

Made up stuff from start to finish.
Look at the quality of Academy midfielders currently on loan. No need for Tielemans.
Never rated him, really.
Was Arsenal ever intrested in this slow and average midfielder?
The free agents are always money minded so we need players who understand every thing at the right time , secondly players who come should know that Arsenal need a large squad where if you are on bench u be patient.
I’ve watched Tielemans play for both Leicester and particularly Belgium in the world cup he was very poor. I’m glad the rumours were just that and we didn’t pursue him.
Poor old JA, ESP THE ADMINS !
How can they now keep on writing the obvious falsehoods which have been on JA regularly concerning Tielemans for simply ages, now that almost NO GOONER anywhere buys into that bunk that we were ever interested in him.
As I have said REPEATEDLY, we never were!!
