Arsenal targeting Leicester star Tielemans to fill midfield void

Arsenal are eyeing a move for Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans.

Mikel Arteta is desperately trying to sign a midfielder this summer, with Thomas Partey at AFCON and Granit Xhaka on the sidelines.

According to Goal, the Gunners have approached Tielemans’s team over a potential deal with negotiations between the club and his agent already taking place.

The Belgium international has just 18 months left on his contract at the King Power Stadium.

He is not expected to sign an extension and Leicester could be tempted to cash in now.

However, Brendan Rodgers would prefer to keep Tielemans at least until the end of the season.

If they can’t convince Tielemans to sign an extension in the summer it is expected he will be sold.

A number of clubs will want Tielemans’ signature but Arsenal are confident they can lure him to the Emirates.
