Leicester star Youri Tielemans is said to have left the King Power Stadium this summer and would agree a deal with Arsenal if the Gunners reach an agreement with the Foxes to sign him. Tielemans has been the subject of transfer interest this summer, with Manchester United also keen to land him.
Tielemans arrived in England in 2019 after Leicester forked out a club-record £35million to lure him away from Monaco. And he took the Premier League by storm as he became a key part of Brendan Rodgers’ side.
In 2021, the midfielder’s superb strike proved the difference as Leicester beat Chelsea 1-0 to lift the FA Cup trophy for the first time in their history. And the 25-year-old has registered 24 goals and 24 assists in 158 games for his current employers.
Tielemans, who has been heavily linked with a move to Arsenal since last year, has just one year left on his current contract and has turned down several offers from the Foxes. And, according to CBS Sports Golazothe talented ace wants to move to the Emirates Stadium.

Tielemans was a target for Ralf Rangnick last season when the 64-year-old was at Old Trafford as interim United boss. But the ace didn’t want to sign for the Red Devils while the Austrian was in charge. New manager Erik ten Hag is also said to be interested. And if the Dutchman’s pitch pleases Tielemans, Edu might be forced to make a quick decision.
Meanwhile, Tottenham and Real Madrid have also been tipped to make a move for Tielemans. But the two clubs are not serious contenders. And Leicester have not given up hope that the player will remain in the East Midlands beyond the end of his current contract. The Foxes currently plan for him to stay with the team next season and could offer him on new terms again if a departure does not materialize.
