Arsenal are ready to Challenge Manchester United for the signing of Belgian midfielder Youri Tielemans.
Arsenal’s interest in the 25 year old playmaker has recently become very serious as the Gunners are in desperate need for a midfielder.
Arsenal recently appointed Martin Odegard as their new captain courtesy of their Spanish manager Mikel Arteta.
Arsenal are also interested in Lucas Paqueta. Sporting director Edu has admitted that it will be a tough decision to choose between Youri Tielemans and Lucas Paqueta.
Arsenal have made it very clear that Arsenal is nothing without their fans so it is the choice of the gooners to decide who is best for the attacking midfield role.
Tielemans and Arsenal have already agreed personal terms but are having some setbacks in reaching an agreement with Leicester City.
Paqueta on the other hand is also part of Arsenal’s choice of midfielders. Paqueta has successfully found favor in the sight of Sporting director Edu.
When Edu recently as asked in a conference meeting about Arsenal’s move for Paqueta, he opened up that he is a fan of Paqueta and will be interested in bringing him to the Emirates Stadium.
Edu also added that he is anxious to recruiting him to the squad and will love to add him to the plans of the EPL for Arsenal.
Mikel Arteta is however a fan of Youri Tielemans. He as the coach, will have an influencing say in the club.
Economically, Arsenal will prefer Youri Tielemans due to his low market value of £25m which is quite cheaper than that of Lucas Paqueta which is £67m.
