Brendan Rodgers and Leicester are on the pedal as we speak and ready to make the moves that will see Leicester progress next season. We all expect several deals to be finalized early on to be able to free up enough space.
To see any form of a continued relationship between Leicester and Youri Tielemans would be a sensational surprise. Arsenal are heavily linked with the Belgian international but still far from certain that the will be lucky in their chase.
Riyad Mahrez, Jamie Vardy and James Maddison were previously heavily linked with a move to Arsenal but no player has been sold from Leicester to Arsenal since 1987, when Alan Smith moved on and signed for The Gunners. During the years of Arsene Wenger it was no Leicester player that attracted Arsenal.
Chelsea, Man Utd, Liverpool, Real Madrid, Newcastle and Spurs are all clubs being linked with Youri Tielemans in the past and his priorities will be all seen from a sporting point of view. A better deal and more possible major trophies to chase will be an important part of his decision to move.
The fact that Arsenal are said to be in talks with Tielemans and his representatives could soon change if other parties do show interest and comes forward with an alternative package.
The transfer fee and salary to pay will not be a problem for any of the other clubs mentioned and Arsenal needs to act fast to be sure they have a deal on their hands.
As we have said earlier five players will soon be shipped out and transfers negotiated. Youri Tielemans, Dennis Praet, Daniel Iversen, Caglar Soyuncu and Hamza Choudhury are all expected to on that short list as space is made for new players.
The link with Fabio Vieira is a new and excting one, but still far from a finished move and other clubs are also sniffing around.
