Arsenal are reportedly interested in signing Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans at the end of the campaign.

The 24-year-old was regularly linked with the Gunners in the past before the Foxes signed him from Monaco, initially on loan.

He has since been a key player for the Midlands outfit, but could be on the move during the summer transfer window.

The midfielder's current deal expires in the summer of 2023, and he has no plans of penning an extension with the Foxes.

The club are willing to treble his current salary of £32,000-a-week, but the Belgian is eyeing a bigger wage package.

The Gunners are keeping a close eye on his situation, and believe they can capitalise on his situation in the summer.

Mikel Arteta has his sights on signing two new central midfielders. One of those could join in the current transfer window.

Arthur Melo has been linked with a loan move from Juventus. The Gunners are likely to negotiate an option to buy for him.
