Boss OFFICIALLY sends message to Arsenal about possible signing of £150k-a-week star
Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers hinted he is willing to let Arsenal target Youri Tielemans run down his contract and leave on a free transfer next summer.
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
But ArsenalFC have not yet managed to wrap up a transfer deal and now they have been warned by Rodgers that the club are willing to hold onto Tielemans and let him leave for nothing next summer
Rodgers told The Times: “It’s not ideal but it’s happened before — players have left here for free before.
“He wouldn’t be the first one, but at this moment in time it’s about keeping an eye on the team and the squad, making sure they are ready.
“The club will be negotiating and talking with the players’ representatives across the squad.
“Thus far, there’s no change in Youri’s situation, there’s no offers. So he’s just continuing to work well and get himself right at this early part of the season.
“Youri is a top international so every game he plays, in actual fact every training session Youri plays, he is trying to be the best player he can.
“There is a lot of speculation about him but he looks to prove a point in every single game he plays”
This has been dragging on for some time now and we are sure that Leicester would want some money for the player – but they would also like the deal to happen soon so they can sign an adequate replacement
It is going to be interesting to see how this all plays out
