ARSENAL transfer target Youri Tielemans is reportedly looking to leave Leicester City on a free transfer in the summer.
The 25-year-old Belgian star has impressed in England since arriving at the King Power in 2019.
So much so that a host of the Premier League’s top clubs have been linked with transfer moves in recent years.
Leaders Arsenal are one of those sides and were heavily linked with a summer transfer last year.
A move didn’t materialize, however, and Tielemans was part of a struggling Foxes side.
Brendan Rodgers’ men sit 15th in the Prem and just two points above the relegation zone.
According to Fabrizio Romano, a January transfer from Leicester to Tielemans has been ruled out.
However, a move in the summer is more likely.
And the player can move for FREE, which is a big boost for Arsenal and Co.
Transfer guru Romano tells betting friends: “Arsenal have always wanted Tielemans at the club and they still do.

“But Tielemans doesn’t want to move in January.
“His contract expires in the summer and he wants to move on a free transfer.”
Arsenal’s January transfer focus is solely on improving Mikel Arteta’s squad far and wide.
The Gunners missed out on signing Mykhailo Mudryk and London rivals Chelsea snapped up the Ukrainian prodigy in an £88m deal.
Romano added: “Arsenal’s focus right now is to sign a winger and a forward.
“Their focus isn’t on a midfielder at the moment, but obviously that could change in the last few days if the right player becomes an opportunity.”
