Arsenal’s pursuit of a central midfielder has taken a step further, with Leicester’s Youri Tielemans allegedly their primary target.
In addition to the arrivals of Fabio Vieira and Gabriel Jesus, Mikel Arteta is rumored to be trying to strengthen his midfield further this summer.
Fabrizio Romano, a writer for Que Golazo, reported that Arsenal had picked Tielemans ahead of Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic because the Belgian was £40million less expensive than the Lazio star.
In light of the looming possibility of a summer free transfer for Tielemans after his current Leicester contract expires in 2023 and the player reportedly has no desire to extend his stay in the Midlands, the Belgian’s market worth is steadily decreasing.
Youri Tielemans and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic are both being considered by Arsenal as possible signings, according to Fabrizio Romano.
In a £34 million deal from Porto, the Gunners have already added Fabio Vieira to their ranks.
In the meantime, Arsenal is reportedly interested in signing a central midfielder before the end of the transfer window.
Meanwhile, the Serbian Milinkovic-Savic is highly regarded throughout the footballing world and is frequently mentioned in the Italian press as a potential transfer target. However, his reported asking price of £68 million complicates matters.
For Lazio’s past season, Milinkovic-Savic scored 11 goals and set up another eleven for his teammates.
It is widely believed that the Italian press is interested in signing Serb Milinkovic-Savic, but his reported asking price of £68 million is making things “difficult,” according to reports. Lazio’s Milinkovic-Savic had a terrific season last year, netting 11 goals and setting up another 11 for his teammates. Despite this, Arsenal is unlikely to be able to launch a bid for the Serbia international due to his high price tag.
Even though Tielemans is expected to leave Leicester this summer, his price tag makes him an appealing proposition for north London. As recently as a few weeks ago, Tielemans revealed that he was open to the possibility of seeking other pastures, citing his career as a motivating factor.
