Arsenal eyeing trio of PL-based signings, amid Tielemans long-term negotiations
A new insight into Premier League giants Arsenal’s summer plans on the transfer front was made available on Monday night.
And information indicates that the transfer team at Emirates are eyeing additions in three different positions on the field.
First to hit the top, it was purely the unsurprising news of the imminent expiration of the contracts of both Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah.
According to CBS journalist Ben Jacobs, speaking in an interview with Arsenal 442, the Gunners are ‘very keen’ to lure Lille’s famed Jonathan David to north London ahead of next season.
However, the Canadian’s hefty price tag means a move for Everton smash Dominic Calvert-Lewin is seen as more realistic at this point, especially if the Toffees continue to be relegated to the Championship .
Next on the list is midfield, where Mikel Arteta and teammates. they seem to have firmly set their sights on Leicester City’s Youri Tielemans.
Jacobs goes further to suggest that Belgium international Tielemans has been in talks with the Emirates side for ‘about a year now’, and the capital club are therefore seen as a clear frontrunner for his signature.
Not only that, but the former Anderlecht talent could cost as little as £25m, as Leicester must face the fact that their standout midfield has no intention of putting pen to paper on new terms with the club.
And the third player on Arsenal’s reported wish list before the summer window opens is also a Premier League player, in the form of Tino Livramento.
Clearly frustrated by the constant injury problems suffered by right-back Takehiro Tomiyasu being the number one choice, the Gunners have set their sights on Southampton’s talented backstop, whose talent Mikel has Arteta is greatly appreciated.
A burst of summer, therefore, cannot be ruled out, before the Chelsea buyout clause in Livramento’s contract at St. Mary’s goes into effect in the summer of 2023.
