Youri Tielemans will join Arsenal as we do see this move as one to happen. To see other clubs being thrown into the hat and pushing for a deal could all be down to Leicester trying to get the price up to a level that would be solid enough to let the player leave.
The Tielemans family do have more than football to think about when they decides on the next move. His wife Mendy and their two girls are also to be considered when the next step is taken.
A long term contract with Arsenal under a young manager in Mikel Arteta building a strong unit at The Emirates will be almost the perfect situation for the Tielemans family.
To rate a move in football for family reasons and especially when you are in a foreign country airport and train connections will of course see this move as fantastic. You have close relations to Brussels in every way from London and Youri would be easier off living here.
Fabrizio Romano is a source to trust but he can also be seen in limbo as transfer deals drags out and moves do not appear as expected due to different reasons.
The fact that Youri Tielemans turned down or in real never signed the contract offered from Leicester must be seen in a broader perspective as family reasons might be also considered heavily in a move to London. Tottenham and West Ham have also been in the mill regarding this transfer topic.
Leicester will also be happy to receive a fee of £30million as new players can be considered. Certainly this move will not be the last in the row of possible players leaving, expecting to see Bouba Soumare soon to arrive in Monaco. This is said by different sources to be a season loan approach. This loan could also include an option to buy at a fixed price at the end of the season.
Daniel Iversen, Hamza Choudhury, Caglar Soyuncu, Ayoze Perez, Jannik Vestergaard and Dennis Praet are other players expected to be seen in the shopping window as they all are linked with moves away.
