The asking price for Arsenal target is expected to drop this week

Arsenal has a longstanding interest in Youri Tielemans, and they have maintained it until now.

The Belgian is one of the finest midfielders in the Premier League and he has been delivering top performances in the competition for years.

Mikel Arteta seems to be a fan, and reports have linked Arsenal with a move for him since the Spaniard became their manager.

Tielemans also wants to play for a bigger club and he has refused every contract offer from Leicester City to renew his deal so far.

With only a few days left before the transfer window closes, the Foxes want to keep him and they are asking for around 45m euros to sell him.

However, a report on Het Nieuwsblad claims this is a decisive week for him and his future will be decided.

It claims in a bid to offload him, the Foxes will reduce their asking price to around 20m euros before the window eventually closes.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Tielemans would be a superb addition to our squad even though we have started the campaign very well.

We need squad depth to do well in all our competitions and he would provide that in our midfield if we add him to our squad.

  1. We now have just ovwr w eek til tthwindow closes so lets me play Devils Advoctate and suppose Tielemans DOES come. What then ? Leiceted willreceive around say20-25 mill for aplayr they cannot adeqwuately replace and they now have ONE point from three games, with Fofana almost certainly leaving themn too and their only decent striker Vardy , already over 30. This is not THEN, a team their fans will think will do anything but struggle for survival IMO.
    Factor in that Roidgers, a wll respected manager will surely be under pressuee andhimnself unhappy IF al this come sto pass
    Then factor in, will Tielemans be any REAL use, considering we plainly areseriously searching for a quality RW and also need a proper back up for PARTEY, neither of which Tielemans offers.

    Now see if my long held conviction that YT will NOT arrive holds water or not. You decide, as I KNOW WHAT I think already.

  2. We need players like him with a winning mentality. His price tag is also good. Bring him with one winger and we are done for the campaign.

    Then send Marquinos to a champioship side or even to France. Also Send Lokonga on loan. Let them all get game time and develop so we can prepare to challenge for the title next campaign when they all come back.

  3. Seems like a lot of money for someone we most likely can get for free in 10 months.

    If we can’t get Savic or Paqueta, then wait until January to see who is available.

    1. That’s not quite the case – everyone will be after him when he’s a free agent.

      Also, he will ask higher wages so there won’t be any real saving over 5 years.

      Not that I’m saying Tielemans is a good buy for the squad right now – in fact I think the opposite.

  4. I think 🤔 Edu and Arteta will surprise us,
    I quite agree with @Jon fox, I think Tielemans will join us in January,

  5. I would recommend that Arsenal captures the signature of Youri Tielemans to strengthen the middle field of the Gunners

  6. This transfer seems unlikely to me. And if we look at him in his recent games, Tielemans is not doing his job well.

    In our game against leiceter, tielemans was tasked to mark Xhaka on the left. But he was losing track of him so many times. And xhaka’s atempt of scoring Saka’s crossing is a very good example, where tielemans gambled for the ball rather than tracking xhaka, which was his task. You might say that he’s not a number 6 or so who defends, but to defend well every player has to do his job. And marking someone is one of the simplest.

    Generally, i don’t think tielemans is a good transfer nor even a squad player. He’s another cedric who does unnecessary things while costing the team. Plus if we get a wide player I don’t think we need a new midfielder unless of injuries or Vieira takes a longer time to adapt also considering his physique.

    We are on a transition to something that’s big. And Arteta’s a very clear manager on his principles and ideas. Trust the process. We are gonna see some thing different this season if no injuries. COYG
