Arsenal: 46 M€ slammed on a former Ligue 1 player?


Winner of Leeds (2-1) this Sunday on the occasion of the 36th day of the Premier League, Arsenal took another step towards a return to the Champions League. And the Gunners are already preparing a copious transfer window as a result.

The headliner of this transfer window could well be Youri Tielemans. Recruited in 2019 by Leicester for 45 million euros from AS Monaco, the 25-year-old midfielder has continued to progress (6 goals and 3 assists in 29 Premier League games this season) and he attracts today today several leaders, including the real Madrid. But the hottest track currently leads to the Gunners.

This Sunday, The Sun indeed affirms that the London club is not far from an agreement with the Foxes for a transfer of the Belgian international for 46 million euros! While Tielemans will reach the end of his contract in a year, the 2016 English champion does not want to take any risks and will not oppose his departure this summer in the event of an offer at this height.

If the case seems well underway with his club, Arsenal must still convince the player. At this level, the English press believes that the native of Sint-Pieters-Leeuw has not necessarily expressed a preference yet but that he above all demands that his future club allow him to take part in the next campaign of Champions League. With 4 points ahead of 5th, Tottenham, 3 days from the end in the Premier League, the Gunners are on track to fulfill this condition. In London, Tielemans would come to compete or even succeed Granit Xhaka, with an uncertain future, and Mohamed Elneny, who is at the end of his contract. The most prestigious track, Real Madrid would remain behind in this file and would only consider taking action in the event of Arsenal’s non-qualification in C1.
