Arsenal are reportedly ready to step up their interest in Youri Tielemans

Arsenal are reportedly ready to increase their interest in Leicester City midfielder Yuri Tillmans.

Tillmans is currently in the final year of his contract with Leicester. The Belgium midfielder could be sold in the current transfer window, if the two parties fail to agree on a new deal.

There is bound to be a lot of interest in Tielemans this summer if Leicester is willing to sell, and Arsenal could be on the verge of ramping up their interest.

This is according to 90 minuteswho also claims that Leicester believes he will stay at the club and cancel his contract.

The 25-year-old appears uninterested in signing a new deal at the club, which could mean Arsenal are able to sign him for a bargain price.

The last thing Leicester want is to leave one of their most valuable players to the club on a free transfer, so there is no doubt that the ideal solution is to recover some of the money they paid for him this summer.

Tielemans will provide Arsenal with some much-needed competition in midfield, and some additional depth to the squad ahead of the new season as they compete in European competitions.
