Arsenal fans told possible signing ‘will not be at rivals’ next season ahead of potential Emirates arrival


Youri Tielemans won’t be at Leicester next season after having his head turned by Arsenal, according to pundit Chris Sutton.

The Gunners have been busy over the past few months and have already made the signing of Matt Turner – Marquinhos and Fabio Vieira – who is arriving from Porto on a deal worth £30 million

But it is expected that Mikel Arteta will continue looking to sign players that will make a real difference on the side – and now it has been claimed that the Arsenal will step up their bid to secure a transfer deal for Tielemans

Tielemans has been a player that Arsenal have admired for some time -but have never wanted to pay the big money that it would have taken to secure his signature last summer or the summer before

However – with one year left on his current deal – he is valued at just £25 million – a fee that the Arsenal board are prepared to pay

And after reports in the media emerged claiming that Arsenal are closing in on a deal for Tielemans – Sutton has come out and claimed that the Belgian star will not be at Leicester for the start of the new season.

He told BBC Radio 5Live: “He has had his head turned. He won’t be at Leicester [next season]. That’s the big rumour, isn’t it? [Tielemans to Arsenal].

“The fact of the matter is that if he wanted to stay at Leicester [then he would have signed a new contract].”

Arsenal have been busy -they have spent some money – but if they secure a transfer deal for Tielemans – they will be signing a player that is more than capable of walking straight into the side

He is not a young talent – he is a full international – he is proven in the Premier League and is a player that many clubs around Europe are looking at

He would be the best signing for the club so far should they get a deal done
