Speaking on The Here We Go Podcast, Fabrizio Romano has shared what he knows about Youri Tielemans and Arsenal’s interest in the midfielder.
However, Romano states that Arsenal remain in contact with people close to the Leicester City midfielder, but the journalist says that Edu will have to be quick if he wants to sign the ‘special’ player as other clubs are entering the race.
What’s been said?
Romano spoke about Tielemans.
“Fabio Vieira to Arsenal is done, we’re wating for the official statement but it’s done. Tielemans, we’ll have to wait and see what Arsenal will decide to do. They’re still in contact with people close to Tielemans, Tielemans’ camp and Leicester, but there’s still no official bid, and remember, Arsenal have to be fast, if they want Tielemans they’ll have to be fast because other clubs are interested, so if they want to complete this deal, they have to be fast, we will see what happens, this week will be important,” Romano said.
Need to hurry
It sounds as though Arsenal need to accelerate their interest in Tielemans if they truly want to bring the Belgian to the Emirates.
Of course, with some outlets reporting that the Gunners’ interest has cooled, this isn’t looking too likely at the moment, and if Arsenal aren’t fully committed to signing Tielemans, the player may not want to come.
Tielemans is a very talented footballer, he won’t want to go to a club where he isn’t deemed a priority target, and if the Gunners want him, they need to prove to him that they truly have a place for him in the squad in the coming days.
