Youri Tielemans told that “he fits in at Arsenal nicely”

With the news that Arsenal have extended Mo Elneny’s contract for another season, it would appear that Arsenal will only need on more backup midfielder to compete and cover for Thomas Partey and Granit Xhaka next season.

There have been numerous rumours about possible arrivals, but the one that seems to stand out at the moment is the Leicester star Youri Tielemsns. It is being reported that with just one year left on his contract with the Foxes he is available for just £25m this summer. At 25 years of age, he is just the right age for Arteta’s project and could have his best years still ahead of him.

Leicester lost out on a place in Europe so he could be keen to cme to the Gunners, and one pundit, the ex-England striker Darren Bent believes he would be the perfect fit for Arsenal. “If he was to leave, I would like him to come to Arsenal,” Bent told talkSPORT as transcribed by the Leicester Mercury. “I really like him, Youri Tielemans.

“I think he is a very good player, he starts in that Belgium team as well. He has got good quality to him. I think he fits in at Arsenal nicely, I really do.”

So it would seem that Tielemans is a very popular choice amongst Arsenal fans and pundits to come to the Emirates, but do you think he is the perfect midfielder for Arsenal?

  1. Good signing and would be relatively cheap. However I think we still need a more physically robust, mobile, holding Midfielder but it’s very unlikely that we spend big money on 2 midfielders so here are some cheap options we can look at. Cheick Doucoure, Amadou Onana or Florian Grillitsch(free transfer)+ £30M for Tielemens should be affordable.

  2. He is good quickly passer and he still young.he’ s good box2box and can be a good partner with Xhaka…if he can come he’ll drop Tomas,trust me!

    1. You would not want to play with a player who is not able to play one twos and pass forward. GX likes passing backwards, that will hamper YT ball progression to our strikers.

    2. I’d rather he’d drop xhaka cause Partey is more of a defensive mid and you’re isn’t

  3. Amadou Onana and Tielemens would a good partnership the two Belgians plus Partey and another Belgian Lonkonga would make us a lot stronger, still think Arsenal might surprise with Aour,Xhaka has to be moved on ,Elneny plays that squad place well.And move on Mailtland Niles to.Onana is a beast,tall ,powerful and is a good passer of the ball,and still only twenty years old.Would be affordable alongside Tielemens.

  4. Tielemans would be a good buy, if not too dear. At£25 mill he is fine but he is not a “perfect” midfielder, whatever that means, as very few anywhere and ever have been “perfect” midfielders .
    Only Gerrard, in recent Prem history could properly be called a complete or “perfect” midfielder and he was unique.
    He could create, defend, carry the ball, pass and score and no other single player can sensibly be expected to have ALL those qualities.
    I’d have Tielemans gladly but not at all costs!

  5. I think YT would enhance our creativity in the midfield. We need a replacement for GX, and a striker like Richardson. A player who can keep the defenders on their toes. Nketiah is not forceful, he is too nice to be a striker.

  6. I can’t help but wonder what keep boosting players’ pride can a player demand cl football to join a club but can’t take his team to that cl places?
