On the latest episode of Talking Transfers, Graeme Bailey revealed that Arsenal are now confident of signing Youri Tielemans.

The Gunners are apparently aiming to bring in three or four key players to help bolster their squad and build on a good campaign last season, and Tielemans appears to be one of those targets.

While on international duty, the midfielder stated that he would always give his all for Leicester City, but that he must also listen to other chances – which will just fuel the fire in terms of his leaving the club.

Despite the fact that the transfer market has not yet opened, Bailey has stated that the Gunners are confident of signing Tielemans this summer.

He said: “We’ve managed to get a hold of a source close to the club who confirms that intent that the club are pushing ahead with this, they are very confident of getting him. They’ve spoken to the player’s camp at length; Leicester are accepting that the player is going now.

“He’s got a lot of interest from around the world, but I think he fancies a move to London. He’s ready for this, he’s long had Arsenal in his sights, Tielemans, and I think he ticks a lot of boxes for Arsenal.”

It has been reported that the Gunners will have to pay £25 million for Tielemans this summer, which would be a major coup for them on paper given that Leicester had to pay £40 million for him back in 2019 – and he’s since gone on to make 158 appearances across all competitions, winning the FA Cup last year.

Tielemans, who was described as a ‘top, top class’ player by Pep Guardiola last year, would add great talent and depth to Mikel Arteta’s midfield and look to add some momentum into their attack from the centre of midfield, having managed 40 passes this season that entered the final third – something that was only outmatched by Martin Odegaard by Arsenal centre-midfielders this past campaign.
