Tielemans Arsenal transfer from Leicester likely

Arsenal are said to be the club most likely to win the transfer race for Leicester City midfielder Yuri Tillmans this summer.

The Belgium international is widely expected to leave Leicester this summer, with reports in Italy talking about a “possible” divorce at the end of this season.

Tielemans could be a perfect fit for Arsenal, although Tuttosport also indicated that Juventus have joined the race to sign the 24-year-old.

Leicester would certainly prefer selling the Tielemans abroad, but it appears likely that they will replace King Power Stadium with the Emirates Stadium in the coming months.

Tillmans have just one year left on his Leicester contract, which also means he’s available on the cheap this summer, for a fee as low as around £25m.

This is a huge blow to the Foxes, who often lose their star names to bigger clubs when they come to call.

However, it has been lucrative for them, with the likes of N’Golo Kante, Riyad Mahrez and Harry Maguire leaving the club with far more than they spent on signing.
