Either Leicester is asking for too much money for a player with a year in contract, and Arsenal has backup options (they should in this midfielder market).This signing makes so much more sense to me than Raphinha, so always wondered why it was put on the back burner, Aside from our striker options, our biggest weaknesses last season with rotation options was when Partey/Xhaka were missing and Tierney, we needed more depth in the central midfield roles of 6/8, and cover for Tierney, Tielemens and Martinez can fix those issues in 2 players
Raphinha would have been an upgrade on Pepe for certain, but don't see an uplift from Saka and Martinelli, so feel anything above £45m is too much for adding depth to the squad, for the money I would want to see a garaunteed starter, and there are more options out there in my opinion who can do what he does

Or Tielemans is waiting for an UCL team to come in. He seems like the person who would wait for that.
Other options too, but it's not necessarily so that Arsenal has started stalling on purpose. Might depend on Xhaka's future too etc.
Not surprising that big teams might go for him with a year in contract, and that's very likely what he is waiting for.Après les dossiers Vitinha et Renato Sanches, le PSG aimerait faire un troisième milieu de terrain cet été. Et du côté de la Premier League, il y a un garçon qui plaît beaucoup à Luis Campos… Luis Campos a faim pour le PSG. Le technicien portugais a bien l’intention de tout changer dans...mediafootmarseille.fr
"According to our sources, Luis Campos has not forgotten an old acquaintance who now plays in the Premier League, with Leicester : Youri Tielemans ! It was Campos who brought the Belgian to Monaco in 2017."
If he moves on and finds comparable backup targets to these then that doesn't make sense. It was always going to be difficult to get our first choice targets without CL. No need to overreact.Imagine the meltdown if we don't get any of Tielemans, Martinez or Raphinha. Edu should be sacked instantly.
