Newcastle ready to outbid Arsenal for Leicester midfielder Tielemans

Newcastle United are set to rival Arsenal for Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans.

Jeunes Footeux says Newcastle could sneak ahead of Arsenal and secure Tielemans’ signature in January.

They claim that the Toon are readying a £17m bid for the highly-rated star.

Leicester could be under pressure to sell mid-season, rather than letting him walk for free next June.

Club bosses are understood to want to recoup at least some of the £40m they splashed out to sign him in 2019.
