Italian announces ‘Arsenal are in talks’ to sign gifted star – Board told to hurry up!
Arsenal are still keen on signing Youri Tielemans – but will have to move swiftly to complete the possible signing of the Leicester star
It is no secret in the media that Tielemans is a player that wants to leave Leicester in order to join a club that has much more of a chance of getting into the Champions League and winning a few trophies
And although Arsenal are not that team right now – the Gunners are making their moves to try and secure the services of the gifted Belgian in order to add a bit more creativity – a bit more goals to that attack.
And according to Fabrizio Romano – they are still in talks over a possible deal – but will need to hurry up and sign Tielemans up as there is other clubs that are also interested in a possible deal
He told wettfreunde: “They’re (Arsenal) still in contact with Youri Tielemans’ camp.
“They’re still in contact with Leicester but they have now a priority and that is a striker. They know in this moment, in the market, they have to get their striker and Gabriel Jesus is the player they want.
“So, they’re working on it.
“So the real priority is the striker and then they’ll decide on the midfielder because Fabio Vieira has been a surprising move.
“They’ve been really good in keeping that under the radar and to sign him in a few days.
“But Tielemans is a player that they’ve always had in their list and they think that him being out of contract next summer with Leicester, could be an opportunity that he would stay on the market in coming weeks.
“From what I’m told they have to be fast because other clubs are exploring this opportunity with Youri Tielemans.
“At the moment nothing serious or advanced but Tielemans could be an option for many clubs.”
