Arteta Closes In On A "Tried And Tested" Midfield Engine; Personal Terms Sorted

Youri Tielemans to Arsenal, contrary to popular belief, is still alive and well. In fact, according to Football365, the Belgian international has agreed personal terms with the Gunners, though Arsenal have yet to reach an agreement with Leicester for his signing. 

The news about Tielemans is a huge boost for Arsenal fans in an otherwise extraordinary transfer window.

When the transfer window opened, Arsenal had two transfers to complete in order to take Arteta's project to the next level. This priority deal included the acquisition of a top striker and a dependable central midfielder. Arteta has yet to sign a striker, but there is speculation that he is attempting to bring in Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City. 

In terms of the midfield, Arteta needs to sign a top midfielder to play alongside Partey and Odegaard in his ideal midfield three. Tielemans, without a doubt, is one of the best midfielders Arsenal could get this window. The 25-year-old has been tried and tested in the Premier League, and who wouldn't expect Tielemans to be a success at the Emirates? (Football365)
