Arsenal have reportedly started talks with Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans over the possibility of signing him on a free transfer at the end of the season as per Football Insider. Tielemans, who is out of contract in the summer, has been a key player for Leicester this season, scoring three goals and making one assist.

However, according to the same sources, Tielemans’ wage demands are “high,” which could prove to be a stumbling block for Arsenal in their pursuit of the Belgian international. Nevertheless, Arsenal are said to be keen on signing Tielemans as they look to strengthen their squad ahead of next season.

Arsenal are currently in a title race and are sitting at the top of the Premier League table with 72 points after 29 games. However, they face stiff competition from second-placed Manchester City, who have 64 points plus a game in hand. If Arsenal were to win a trophy this season, it could potentially convince Tielemans to join them in the summer.

Tielemans, who joined Leicester from Monaco in 2019, has been a standout performer for the Foxes and has played a crucial role in their success over the past two seasons. His ability to score goals from midfield and provide assists has made him a sought-after player in Europe.

If Arsenal were to sign Tielemans, he would add quality and depth to their midfield, which has been an area of concern for them in recent seasons. The Gunners have struggled to find a consistent midfield partnership, and Tielemans could be the solution to their problems.

In conclusion, Arsenal have reportedly started talks with Youri Tielemans over a possible free transfer at the end of the season. The Belgian international has been a key player for Leicester this season and would be a valuable addition to Arsenal’s midfield. However, his wage demands could prove to be a stumbling block for the Gunners. It remains to be seen whether Arsenal will be able to convince Tielemans to join them, but if they were to win a trophy this season, it could potentially sway his decision.
