Arteta's Summer Getting Better: Midfielder Agrees To Personal Terms Ahead Of Arsenal Move

Arsenal fans expected Arteta and Edu to complete a transfer involving the acquisition of a reliable central midfielder. 


Youri Tielemans emerged as the reliable midfielder Arsenal were interested in signing, but for the time being, links to the Leicester man appear to have died down. In response to Arsenal appearing to have cooled their interest in Tielemans, reliable journalist Ben Jacobs claims Arsenal may be in a "comfort zone" because they have an agreement with Tielemans regarding his move to the Emirates. "Arsenal have put a heck of a lot of work into Tielemans," said Jacobs to Give Me Sport. "They’ve agreed personal terms, and their talks with Tielemans date back for the best part of a year.

"But for whatever reason, Arsenal have decided not to swoop just yet and have actually tabled a bid with Leicester City. And if they do so, and agree a fee at the lowest end of £25 million and the highest end of £32 million, they will get Youri Tielemans."

Many Arsenal fans will rejoice at Ben Jacobs' revelation. Many have wondered why the club isn't pursuing a midfielder, given Arteta and Edu's current focus on landing Lisandro Martinez (a midfielder) and Raphinha (a forward). With Tielemans' contract expiring in a year, Arsenal should be able to easily strike a deal with Leicester for his services. (GiveMeSport)
