Youri Tielemans did have a disappointing World Cup, but his form at Leicester before the Qatar tournament was one to count as Chelsea is said to be showing an interest as they prepare changes in the midfield area.

Ngolo Kantè and Jorginho are both in their 30’s. Youri Tielemans looks as a player that could match the picture of what Graham Potter needs to fill the gap after players that has come to a certain age and might be shipped on to their next adventures.

Leicester are at present linked with Morocco World Cup sensation Azzedine Ounahi and said to be ready to place a bid of €45million to land the highly rated youngster. The 22 year old midfielder looks a perfect fit for a replacement of Youri Tielemans and if Leicester can get at least €25million for Youri Tielemans, we will probably see something happen.

Arsenal might consider other options as the Belgian midfielder might not be the ideal fit for an Arsenal midfield in perfect balance. To see Tielemans making a move to The Emirates without a certain first team position in place, looks totally out of the question.

The move for Ounahi from Angers, looks like a typical Leicester signing, as he is a young up and coming player ready to take his next step in the game. Leicester is today seen among players in Europe as a massive stepping stone towards the top of football, and hopefully that counts more than being on the fringe at Barcelona.

Ounahi is also said to have admirers at other English clubs with Wolves and West Ham also eager, but it looks as if Leicester are front runners with £85certainty to bring this move to bed and it would be a massive signing if it happens.
