Darren Bent has said on talkSPORT (6:41am, June 3, 2022) that he wants Youri Tielemans to join Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal if he leaves Leicester City in the summer transfer window.
The former Tottenham Hotspur striker is an Arsenal fan, and the talkSPORT pundit would love to see Tielemans at the Emirates Stadium next season.
Tielemans has been linked with a move from Leicester to Premier League rivals Arsenal in the summer transfer window.
According to The Sun in May, Arsenal are growing very confident about signing the £120,000-a-week (SalarySport) Belgium international midfielder.
YOURI TIELEMANS URGED TO JOIN ARSENAL
Bent said on talkSPORT (6:41am, June 3, 2022) : “If he was to leave, I would like him to come to Arsenal. I really like him, Youri Tielemans.
“I think he is a very good player, he starts in that Belgium team as well. He has got good quality to him. I think he fits in at Arsenal nicely, I really do.”
COULD A TRANSFER HAPPEN?
In our view, Arsenal could be able to sign Youri Tielemans from Premier League rivals Leicester City in the summer transfer window.
The 25-year-old has reportedly turned down the offer of a new deal from Leicester, who are open to cashing in on him now.
Arsenal are a big club and a global brand, and they will play in the Europa League next season.
Just like this past season, the Gunners will be aiming to finish in the Premier League top four in 2022-23 as well.
Tielemans has scored 18 goals in 120 Premier League appearances so far in his career.
