Arsenal could sign Youri Tielemans on deadline day
Arsenal could secure the services of Leicester City playmaker Youri Tielemans on transfer deadline day, according to Dean Jones.
The Gunners have held a long-term interest in the Belgian, but they are yet to make a formal bid for his services this summer.
It has been reported that personal terms have been agreed, but a deal could be delayed until the final stages of the transfer window.
Leicester City wanted £30m for Tielemans earlier this summer, but could be forced to accept a cut-price deal in the coming weeks.
Jones claims that the Gunners are playing the waiting game on the 25-year-old, and could make a late raid before the deadline on September 1.
Tielemans' current deal with the Foxes expires in June next year. He has no plans of putting pen-to-paper on a new long-term contract.
The Midlands outfit have their hands tied at the moment, considering Tielemans either wants to join Arsenal or run down his existing deal.
