CBS Sports journalist Ben Jacobs who spoke to GiveMeSport said Arsenal have an agreement in place with Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans over personal terms.
According to him, what is yet to be agreed upon is the fee for the player between the two clubs.
The well-known and well-respected journalist described the Leicester City star as “an incredible talent” and same was said of him by former Tottenham Hotspur defender Michael Dawson.
Jacobs however noted that the North London outfit are yet to make an offer for the Belgium international midfielder.
Youri Tielemans remains the first midfield target for the North London outfit.
So far the North London outfit have signed five players, including Gabriel Jesus, Matt Turner, Marquinhos, Fabio Vieira and Oleksandr Zinchenko. Youri Tielemans could be next to join.
However, the journalist said that Arsenal are aware that Tielemans wants to move to the Emirates Stadium.
Jacobs told GiveMeSport: “As Leicester have said and as I’ve said repeatedly, Arsenal have never made an offer for Youri Tielemans.
“What they have done is gone to the player and agreed personal terms, broadly speaking. What they do know is that Tielemans would like to move to Arsenal”.
An option for Arsenal is Lazio playmaker Sergej Milinkovic-Savic. Milinkovic-Savic is a very good midfielder who plays attacking midfield.
Arsenal are looking at £25m for Leicester midfielder Youri Tielemans. The Belgian midfielder has considered Arsenal to be his 1st choice club for the summer.
