Arsenal told one player they should sign to make their fans happy

Noel Whelan believes Youri Tielemans would be a great signing for Arsenal in this transfer window, and their fans would be delighted if he was added to the squad.

The Belgian wants out of Leicester City and has refused to sign a contract extension so far.

The Foxes are now prepared to cash in on him, and he is a long-term target of Arsenal.

Mikel Arteta’s side has bolstered their squad with some fine players in this transfer window, but more will come in.

Tielemans is one of the finest midfielders in the Premier League, and Arsenal wants him as a part of their group.

He could cost them as much as £30million, but former Leeds United man, Whelan says he would be worth the price.

He tells Football Insider

“£30m for a player like Tielemans, when you know he can do it in the Premier League – it’s nothing.

“I think he would fit straight into the Arsenal style of play, and the fans would be overjoyed if they could get him in.

“He’s a very talented midfield player, and if you can get him for that sort of price then they’d still have the budget to go out and get a winger as well.

“I believe he would be one of the best midfielders they have had for a long time. I could see him at the club, for sure.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

We need a top midfielder to add to the arrival of Fabio Vieira, and Tielemans suits the bill.

He is young, experienced and has the skillset to become the main man at the Emirates.

We will benefit from having him in our squad, and we probably need to act fast to make the transfer happen.

  1. Not for me unless Xhaka is being replaced
    Good player with great ball control and an eye for goal but lacks pace which we already have in abundance in Odegaard,Xhaka ,Elneny and now Vieria ,height and power is what we need in that middle of the pitch not another good on the eye player .
    But if he’s to replace Xhaka then yes .

  2. Initially I thought we WOULD sign Tielemans. But as the time went by and his price was very affordabe and we still took no action , I became convinced , as I STILL AM, that he will NOT now come to us.

    I believe we are content to let things lie with strong rumours that he will come.
    But I contend that we are after other players in front of him and he is at best a back stop who we would rather not need to buy.

    In essence he is in fact a decoy for us to use to throw our pursuit of other midfielders off the scent of rival clubs, journos and we fans too.

    I would now be actively surprised IF Tielemans DOES come to us.

    Just my take but timing alters events in football as in all walks of life. I can see through most charades in life and though I may still be wrong – we all are at times – I say do NOT expect Tielemans to sign for us.

  3. I think of all the players we are looking at Tielamens is the most likely to be in an Arsenal shirt. Agreement in principle was agreed weeks ago. Not sure why this hasn’t been finalised but both parties were keen.
