Midfielder on radar

Arsenal are ‘considering’ a late bid for Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans, according to a report by 90min. They could try and tempt the Foxes into cashing in on the Belgium international on the final day of the transfer window.

He has been a key player for Brendan Rodgers’ side over recent years and is always the subject of transfer speculation. The Gunners are said to be ‘long-term’ admirers of the former Anderlecht and AS Monaco man.

Left-back linked with exit

Left-back Kieran Tierney is being linked with a surprise move to either Inter Milan and Juventus. That’s according to Italian news outlet to Tutto Mercato, who claim the defender has interest from Italy after falling out of favour at the Emirates Stadium.

It is no secret that the former Celtic man isn’t guarenteed regular minutes with the London club anymore. However, it would be a risk to let him depart as he provides strong competition and back-up in the defensive department. His long-term future depends on whether he wants regular football or is willing to battle it out for a place under Mikel Arteta.
