Youri Tielemans

Considering we play LCFC in the second game of the season I agree it’s more likely to happen around deadline day.

I really hope we land Tielemans. Would be such an upgrade to Xhaka in our current system.

Imagine going from this in the latter end of the season:

Ramsdale
Cedric - Holding - Gabriel - Tavares
Elneny - Xhaka
Saka - Ødegaard - Martinelli
Nketiah

To this in the opening game of the new season:

Ramsdale
Tomiyasu - Saliba - Gabriel - Martinez
Partey - Tielemans
Saka - Ødegaard - Raphinha
Gabriel Jesus

Saliba and Martinez wouldn't start but it would be a nice problem to have anyway

Don't think Tierney will be fit to start the first game. Not sure on how White is doing either which is why I left them out for those two. But yeah it would be a nice problem to have ;)

Partey might not be fit but we look a lot better if/when everyone is.
 
I agree. Let’s look at things like this:
Vieira was an opportunistic signing that we had to grab.
We moved quickly for Jesus, Raphina and Martinez because there is significant interest from rival clubs, mainly Sp**s, Chelsea and United.
As far as we know there is no interest in Tielemans barring Arsenal. This will probably end up like our moves for Tierney and Ramsdale whereby the player will come near the end of the window.
I wouldnt lose any sleep if Tielemans signed for you, Vardy, he is not. He has too many long periods of poor form. As far as price goes, Rodgers likes him, so I wouldnt be surprised if they let him run his contract down and let him go, next summer. The owners arent poor, and after the Kante debacle, wont be intimidated.

Most Leicester fans don’t seem high on Youri, while Arsenal fans think they are getting something special.

Interesting. I know he’s a hit and miss type of player.

Just had an indifferent season though. They had him as Top 3 most influential players in their squad the season before last (they did a poll on it)

Been consistent about this guy. But we can be linked with anyone and if you don’t rate the player you get attacked in here. He is so overrated

Ha go back to the Maddison thread form last Summer. One of the Leicester fans was saying Maddison wouldnt start if he stayed at Leicester, and he wasnt that good. I disagreed and said hed be vital to Leicester's season and he would score goals and assist and Rodgers would have to depend on him.

Imagine to everyones surprise after Leicester fans were saying Maddison wasnt that good when he gets 12 goals and 8 assists in the premiership while being the cornerstone of their attack. Leicester fans havent a clue

Yep yep. They were all saying Tielemans was the one to go for last summer lmao. Wouldn't pay much attention to them.

He was very underwhelming this past season, while being class in the previous two. Leicester fans' judgment of him have changed over time accordingly.

There has to be a way to sell players among Bellerin + AMN + Torreira + Pablo Mari + Pépé + loan fee from Nuno for at least 30M£ to get Tielemans...

Hopefully this deal ends up happening. Since May Ornstein confirmed the interest. A unique chance to get him when he is entering his prime (25y) after 3/4 seasons in PL already. Partey and Xhaka are both 5 years older. There is 0 risk here, only rewards....

Kind of encouraging, I assumed this one was off. Might depend on whether we get an offer for Xhaka or a loan for Sambi perhaps.

Looks real good. Add rotation of Xhaka, Martinelli, Nketiah, Smith Rowe, Tierney, Fabio Vieira, Pepe (if he is still here), Elneny, White, Turner/Leno, even Tavares, Holding and Cedric. That's decent enough for twists and turns to come this season.

Now, if we add on top of that, namely a backup RB and CF... we are starting to look dangerous.

I'll be extremely surprised if we don't sign this guy. He'd be perfect for the left 8 role that Arteta is keen on, is available for cheap and we've clearly done lots of work behind the scenes.

We're going for quality this window all over the park, but only have Xhaka in the left 8 position who's not even that good there anyway. Throw in the fact that we haven't been linked to anyone else makes me think this is basically done, but because time is on our side here we're hoping to get him a few mill cheaper later in the window.

Arsenal Quotes

The coach's role is to make the player understand everything that serves the interest of the game. To do this he must speak to the child within each player, to the adolescent he was and the adult he is now. Too often a coach tends only to speak to the adult, issuing commands for performance, for victory, for reflection, to the detriment of the child who is playing for pleasure, living in the present.
