Could Arsenal lose Youri Tielemans to Man United  if they don’t move quickly

Is Youri Tielemans the Next Big Arteta Transfer Miss?

Most Gooners must be pleased with the transfer news from Arsenal; Leandro Trossard has joined, and Jakob Kiwior of Spezia is expected to join. Arsenal’s winter transfer window is going well, but I’m sure you’ll agree with me that Arteta can make it a complete success by bringing in a reliable midfielder to cover for Thomas Partey. A number of midfielders have been linked, but when it comes to Arteta’s search for a midfielder, Youri Tielemans is the first name that comes to mind.

The Leicester man has been strongly linked with a move to Arsenal; it is widely assumed that Tielemans will join the Gunners sooner or later, but his path to the Emirates has been fraught with uncertainty. Arsenal may need to be pushed to make an official move for Tielemans, who they can sign for a low fee this winter or for nothing at all in the summer.

Ben Jacobs’ latest revelation about Tielemans may push them to finally get him from Leicester. “We know that Manchester United have had a long-standing interest in Youri Tielemans, but Tielemans was not that sold at a point when he thought that Arsenal were also very seriously at the table and may move a bit quicker,” said Jacobs on Give Me Sport.

“Now, Manchester United are flying on the football field, it will be interesting to see whether that changes anything in Tielemans’ perception of Manchester United.”

Tielemans could join Manchester United or Arsenal, but the question for Arsenal fans is whether Tielemans will be the next big name Arsenal misses out on after Dusan Vlahovic, Lisandro Martinez, and Mykhailo Mudryk.

  1. We dont need the Don Lemon look-alike !

    Kiwior and Vieira are the back ups- White and Tomi can step up also if lots of injuries#

    Liking the fact that all our new signings can play in multiple positions giving the squad greater strength

  2. Not too fussed about Tielemens either way but I maintain that we need to bring in a CM to rotate with Xhaka more than back up for Partey as I’m more comfortable with Elneny stepping in than Lokonga and think Arteta feels the same which is why talks about us going big for a DM (Rice?) in the summer as apposed to now. Two names that intrigue me are:

    -Mikel Merino, primarily a LCM who can also play DM, top passing, tackling. Real sociedad Would not want to sell him espy at this late stage of the transfer window, so this would be difficult deal.

    -Nicolo Zaniolo, Versatile, plays LW, RW, CAM, ST but imho he has the qualities to play in Xhaka’s advanced 8 position. Good ball carrying ability, decent passing, would help out defensively as he likes to get stuck into tackles and is quite mobile for someone standing at 6″3. Has 1 year Left on his contract and Roma are said to be willing to sell for €30M-€35M. The only concern would be he suffered two previous ACL injuries however he is only 23yrs so I don’t believe it to be so detrimenta.

  3. Speaking personally , nothing would delight me more than to see the vastly overhyped, overrated Tielemans go to United to sit endlessly on their bench whilst costing them wages .

    I have said all along he will not be coming to us and I STAND BY THAT!

  4. I think we should move on from these constant articles about this overrated player now, if we were really interested in him we we would have signed him by now.
