Forget Tielemans as exciting £40m midfielder now wanted at Arsenal!
Lens midfielder Seko Fofana is being considered as an alternative to Youri Tielemans, according to reports.
Arsenal have been very active in the transfer market this summer window and have signed some players that have played at the highest level of the game – and has been successful at it
But it is believed that ArsenalFC will carry on spending this transfer window – and Tielemans is a player that is still on the shopping list of the Gunners and is a player that is keen on a move to the Emirates
However – the Foxes are keen to keep the Belgian international – despite the fact that he is out of contract at the end of the season – and will fight to the bitter end before allowing him to depart the club
And the Gunners could instead turn their attention to Fofana, according to the Mirror – as they seek to carry on spending their money
Lens have slapped a £40million price-tag on the midfielder – who is also attracting interest from AC Milan – but Arsenal would be keen to get that fee down a bit knowing the midfielder is open to leaving the French side
Fofana recently hinted that he could leave the French club, saying: “I’m officially here. After that, anything is possible. I want to have fun and take everything I can take.
“We are in a market period in which there is a lot of reflection. You can tell yourself that you will stay or that you will leave, you don’t really know.”
This Tielemans move has been dragging on for far too long now and if Arsenal wants to move on from him – then Fofana is a decent alternative
He may cost a bit more – but he really is talented and could shine in that Arsenal midfield under Mikel Arteta
However – we feel that a move for Tielemans is not yet over – the chase is still on
