Pundit reckons Arsenal target has “stagnated a little bit” and might not improve them

Sky Sports journalist, Michael Bridge, believes Youri Tielemans has not been developing amidst interest from Arsenal.

The midfielder has been linked with a move to the Emirates in this transfer window and there are at least two more weeks before it closes.

Arsenal added Fabio Vieira to their midfield in this transfer window, and Albert Sambi-Lokonga has not been getting enough playing chances.

These two are youngsters, and Tielemans certainly has more experience than they do, especially in English football.

Reports continue to link him with a move to the Emirates, but Bridge doubts if he can deliver at Arsenal.

He tells Give Me Sport:

“Well, again, like Maddison, he either signs a new contract, or he goes. But that one’s come back and forth quite a lot over the summer, so again it’s a bit of a wait and see.

“But how much does he improve Arsenal? I don’t know, he’s sort of stagnated a little bit. But it’s clear that Arsenal are looking for a bit more.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Many clubs want Tielemans for a reason, and we would be smart to add him to our squad.

However, we have reached a stage where we can fully trust Mikel Arteta.

If the gaffer believes the midfielder suits his style of play, we can sign him, otherwise we need to move on to other targets.

Watch Mikel Arteta on Arsenal 4-2 Leicester – Another good day for the Gunners….

  1. “we would be smart to add him to our squad.”

    No we won’t, and thank God Arteta finally confirmed my thoughts and views yesterday by saying Viera is Xhaka’s competition for the LCM.
    Rather get a RW, or another lone 6 than the Tielemans nonsense

    1. I think we need both. Cover/rotation for Partey and for Saka.

      Then again as long as Pepe stays, I can’t see us getting another Winger..

  3. If we had genuine interest in Tielemans, we would definitely have gone for him by now, especially given his low transfer fee. I therefore believe that we will not be moving for him, at least not this summer

  4. Bridge your take on this matter so far is the only one that makes sense,
    Arsenal is now at a stage where incomings must have to be rooting up trees, they must significantly improve our team.

    Tielemans will not .move the needle, we need game changers or big game player

  5. Hilarious. Leicester fans could have told you that 12 months ago. He’s never been as good as you seen to think 😂

  6. Tielemans is only being “linked” by folk swho cannot read thr signs and what is happening at our club. I say there is virtually zero chance of signing him and price is NOT the reason.
    He would already be here, IF we had wanted him.
    He is not here and WON’T be coming.

    JA uses the false words “being linked”, simply so they can write extra articles. Never mind the truth though, as ever!

  7. Back up for Partey
    Replacement for Pepe

    Those 2 signings plus getting Pepe off the books would be great.

    Xhaka has showed that Teilimans isn’t needed as Vieria still has to come in and play in cm.

    Brilliant start to the season 👏
