Arteta tells Arsenal he has to have £25m man in his squad

Arsenal has started work on their summer transfer targets as they look to return to the top four next season.

Mikel Arteta’s side came very close to returning to a Champions League place in the just-concluded season.

It was an overachievement considering that they are still not very far into their rebuild, and the club will keep spending to reach its goals.

Reports have linked several players to the Emirates, and one of their target is Leicester City’s Youri Tielemans.

The Belgian midfielder is attracting the attention of some of the best clubs in Europe, and Arteta wants him.

The Telegraph claims the Spaniard has told the Gunners to add the Belgian to his squad.

The midfielder has a year left on his current deal at the King Power Stadium, but he would still cost around £25m to sign.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Tielemans would be a good signing for us, and the midfielder has proven over the last few seasons that he can deliver results against the best clubs.

This is a sign that he would not struggle if he steps up to a bigger side like Arsenal.

With other clubs also looking to sign him, it would be smart for us to add him to their squad sooner than later.

  1. This rumour is one that I think is almost certainly true . That does NOT mean that it will happen though, only that it just might.

    1. Granit xhaka. And no, i dont hate xhaka, but he is a limitated player, even now when he is in form. If we need more attacking contribution from the midfield, tielemans is so much better

      I think the guy of monaco is better option, but i think he is out of our range since we dont have cl football and he is linked with the very best. Tielemans is very good option for 25-30mm, so we can save money for the st, where we need to invest rhe most (osimehn or nunez are my candidates, if it is possible)

    2. We need you. Please, step up. All of you will be acting like chief scouts whereas your favorite players for transfer are rubbish. Online bandwagon fans!

  2. Youri Tielemans conceded as many penalties on his own as Man City, Tottenham and Southampton combined in the Premier League this season (4)

    The perfect fit 😂

  3. Not the top player we need, but an upgrade on Xhaka in my opinion. Otherwise, he lacks the pace and goal scoring threat we need from a B2B like Maddison or someone very similar.

  4. Tielemans is a hybrid. he can defend, he can create, he can dribble when needed. He is versatile. Now to have him in the midfield can open a lots of options for Arsenal. We can pair him with a more defensively minded DM with Tielemans as an 8. Him with Odegaard can create a lot of trouble to the teams. Tielemans can work as deep lying playmaker with two attacking cms in fron. He can work wonders with xhaka too, or Elneny. All depends on tactics. What Tielemans will provide is that tactical versatility that none of our midfielders provide.

    1. His numbers are quality from this season considering he struggles at times with injuries

  5. He’ll definitely come to us if real madrid sign tchouameni.i’ll love to see him in our colours next season.

  6. At that price a good deal. Good passer, decent dribbler, defensive ability okay and can score from outside the box. Obviously his biggest weakness is mobility but speed isn’t everything, if your football intelligence is high and smart positioning can make up for a lack of pace something Xhaka has struggled with over his time here, diving into tackles either because he is caught out of position or fouling because he can’t keep up with attackers.

  7. Tielmans is everything we need in that midfield. He is a complete midfielder, able to drible, operate in tight spaces, tackle, pass the ball, assist the strikers and shoot from distance. I will be more than happy to see him signing for Arsenal.

  8. We really have to go get C Nkoukou if we need to challenge for title next season and add Osmhein or Nunes.

  9. Elneny lack’s mobility ,same with xhaka ,party and lokonga ,what sort of midfielders are we creating,in my opinion who ever we intend to add should have speed,so that we can handle quick 1st goal in Newcastle match when cedrec was out of position and elneny was covering for him,had him been quick,he would have prevented that cross that lead to the goal,so lets add something different in midfield
