Arsenal apparently wants to sign Youri Tielemans for €35 million.

Fichajes reports that Arsenal will pursue Youri Tielemans. The Leicester City prodigy is one of Mikel Arteta’s main midfield targets for the upcoming season.

Arsenal reportedly want to sign Tielemans at €35 million. The Belgian midfielder’s contract with Leicester City ends next season, and he has decided to depart.

Tielemans joined Leicester City from RSC Anderlecht’s junior programme in 2019. After a strong second half of the 2018/19 season, his loan agreement was made permanent.

Over 150 competitive appearances for Leicester City. Tielemans’ tenacity, work ethic, and ability to push opposition ball carriers make him Leicester’s second line of press. His performances under Brendan Rodgers have been crucial.

Tielemans is leaving the King Power Stadium after 3 1/2 years. Newcastle United want to sign the 25-year-old. The Gunners have been monitoring the midfielder’s situation since January.

Arteta likes Leicester’s press play. The Arsenal manager feels the Belgian international a perfect replacement for Thomas Partey and Granit Xhaka in the next season. Tielemans might improve Arsenal’s midfield depth.

Tielemans has press skills and high-level football experience. He’s a safer choice than Arsenal’s second midfield target, Corentin Tolisso, particularly if they can sign him for €35 million next summer.
