Arsenal Manager, Mikel Arteta is reportedly keen on acquiring the services of Leicester City midfielder, Youri Tielemans and has asked te club to make an initial bid of £25m to bring him in.
Tielemans is currently approaching in the final year of his contract with Leicester City and has been on the radar of quite a number of European clubs.
According to the Telegraph, Arteta is ‘pushing’ the club to make a £25m bid for Tielemans while the player and his representatives have an eye for competing in Europe next season.
Leicester City finished 8th in the 2021/2022 EPL season while Arsenal finished 5th, which means the latter will be competing in the group stage of the Europa league in the 2022/2023 football season.
Leicester City have reportedly slammed a 30 million pounds tag on the midfielder as coach Breden Rodgers looks forward to using the funds to strengthen his squad in the summer transfer window.
Speaking about the player last week, Rodgers pointed out that one of the most impressive things about Tielemans is his his ability to make passes that emphasise his eye for goals.
“He makes passes in the team that not many can make. He fights for the team and that’s the type of person he is. He’s maybe not played to the top of his level sometimes but his commitment, his training every day, and his preparation shows he’s a top-class professional.”
