Liverpool is close to beating Arsenal to Premier League midfielder

Youri Tielemans has been one of the sought-after players in England in the last few seasons and the midfielder is set to leave Leicester City.

The Foxes have given up keeping the Belgian and Arsenal is one of his long-term admirers and should look to add him to their squad as a free agent.

However, that does not seem like it will be the case, with the Gunners now expected to miss out on his signature to a rival.

A report on Football Insider claims Tielemans is also on the radar of Liverpool and the Reds expect to win the race for his signature.

They could lose Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain this summer as free agents and need their midfield revamped.

Tielemans is one man on their shortlist and the Merseyside club is reportedly making moves to get the midfielder on a pre-contract early.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Tielemans is one of the players who have impressed in the midfield of a PL club this season and might do well for us.

However, it seems Mikel Arteta does not really fancy the former AS Monaco man because Arsenal has prioritised signing other midfielders in the last two transfer windows.

  1. “Liverpools close to beating us for Tielemans” then?
    How can you beat a rival who is not in the same race, I ask myself!
    Answer: You cannot!

    I repeat for the umpteenth time, Tielemans does NOT interest us and he will NOT be coming here. Correctly too!

  2. He will get straight into LPool’s team but would not get into ours, hence we don’t need him.

  3. Think Ten Hogs underestimated Pool or he may not have fully acclimatize to the league yet.
    When ask just before traveling to Anfield what he thinks about the trip, Ten Hogs responded ‘ Anfield is just another football ground’

    It will be interesting to get a response if the same question ask now.

  4. All the pundits who overhype Man U will be lying low this week.Looks like we could have dodged a bullet with Martinez who along with Shaw completely lost the plot.
