GOOD NEWS: Arsenal given green light to sign No.8 Belgium international



Arsenal are now seriously considering trying to add Leicester City playmaker Youri Tielemans on a free transfer next summer. There was a lot of speculation surrounding Belgium international’s future at the start of the campaign. The London giants were at the front of the queue to add the 25-year-old midfielder, but a move never materialized.

The Belgian midfielder, and the Foxes, struggled at the beginning of the season, but his form has certainly improved. Handed the captain’s armband in October, the Belgian has helped lift Leicester City away from the relegation zone. However, Tielemans appears to have bigger ambitions than spending the rest of his career at Leicester City.

And now, the Gunners could sign the former Monaco midfielder from Leicester City when his deal expires in the summer. Arsenal put all their efforts into signing Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo in January. However, the Seagulls would not budge despite the Gunners’ mammoth offer for the Ecuadorian midfielder.

Youri would offer the Gunners a much cheaper option were they to add the Foxes captain. Tielemans would likely demand a big signing on fee, and an improvement on his £120,000-a-week wages. However, it would be a real saving on the £70m they offered for Moises Caicedo just a few weeks ago.


Youri’s availability has been well-known for some time, and yet the Gunners have never made their move. Tielemans is going to have a lot of options on the table very soon. If the Gunners is one of them, it might be very hard for Youri Tielemans to turn down.
