Leicester City’s midfielder Youri Tielemans  is a top summer target for Arsenal according The Athletic’s David Ornstein.

With Elneny’s and Granit Xhaka’s long term future under doubt, central midfield is one of the priority positions for the Gunners in the upcoming transfer window.

Several names have been linked to the North London outfit in the past few months. However, Tielemans currently holds the strongest appeal to the hierarchy at London Colney.

Ornstein wrote, “Arsenal’s key decision-makers are thought to be in favour of acquiring the former Monaco midfielder, and dialogue with his representatives is said to have offered cause for encouragement.”

The Belgium international only 12 months’ left on his deal at the King Power Stadium and Leicester are open to selling the midfielder this summer, rather than see him leave on a free transfer next year.

Both Arsenal and Manchester United have been heavily linked with a move for the 25-year-old.

But, it’s Arsenal who are leading the race to land Tielemans ahead of the upcoming transfer window as the Belgian keen on playing Champions League next season.

Arteta’s side sit four points clear ahead of fifth-placed Tottenham ahead of the north London derby on Thursday evening.
