Arsenal overtake Manchester United and reach agreement for Youri Tielemans

Youri Tielemans, according to 'Daily Mail', has turned down a renewal offer for Leicester City. This makes him closer to joining Man Utd. They are his main suitors for next season. There is talk of a possible sale for around 40 million euros. The midfielder has also been linked with a move to La Liga.

‘football.london’ claims that Arsenal have reached a personal agreement with Youri Tielemans over his transfer. Manchester United had been interested in him recently as well, so the situation involves an ‘overtake’ by the ‘gunners’, who would pay around 35 million pounds for the Leicester City player.

According to ‘football.london’, Youri Tielemans and Arsenal have reached an agreement over personal terms for the player to join the squad for the upcoming season. All that remains for the ‘gunners’ to do is to convince Leicester with an offer of around 35 million pounds. This would be a big blow to United, who were also interested in him if they are unable to get Frenkie de Jong.

The Belgian is more than settled in the Premier League, where he has been since he joined the ‘foxes’ from Monaco. From there, he has become one of the main transfer targets for several big English clubs. If the transfer that this story is reporting on is finalised, he would potentially be able to fight for bigger and better things.

It is interesting how the Premier League transfer window is shaping up in just the first week. The international press are reporting on possible moves such as Gabriel Jesus’ move to Arsenal, or the arrival of Kalvin Phillips to City from Leeds. The fees being mentioned are in the region of 42 million pounds.

But returning to Tielemans, his asking price, or at least the one that has been leaked, is lower than his market value of 50 million pounds. The key is that he only has a year left on his contract, so this summer is the last chance for his owners to benefit from a sale and not have to see him leave for free.
