Arsenal departures could fund Tielemans move
On Tuesday night, backup goalkeeper Bernd Leno signed a contract with newly promoted Premier League team Fulham. Hector Bellerin, Pablo Mari, and Lucas Torreira are also rumored to be close to departing the Emirates Stadium. Recent sources indicate that Bellerin is prepared to forego the remainder of his pay with the Gunners in order to force a free transfer to Real Betis, where he spent last season on loan.
If the Gunners are able to offload the aforementioned trio, they will be saving £19.24 million a year in salary, which is a windfall that might assist finance a deal for Youri Tielemans of Leicester City.
Despite the fact that the Foxes have not yet received an official offer, football.london revealed earlier this year that Edu spoke with the Belgian international’s representatives.
Despite the fact that the new season is only a few days away, Youri Tielemans of Leicester City is still the subject of persistent rumors that he will go to Arsenal this summer.
In addition to signing Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko from Manchester City, teenage midfielder Fabio Vieira, Brazilian winger Marquinhos, and American goalkeeper Matt Turner, Arsenal has already spent more than £110 million this summer.
However, manager Mikel Arteta is eager to bolster his team since he is aware that there is still work to be done in the market. And it seems like Tielemans is at the top of his list of people to kill.
But by offloading these squad members, Arteta and company could be able to rekindle their interest in the 25-year-old, whose King Power Stadium contract is about to expire.
