Leicester expect Arsenal to bid for Youri Tielemans ahead of the transfer deadline but insist they will not be ‘taken advantage of’.

LEICESTER are reportedly expecting Arsenal to come by and make an offer for Youri Tielemans before the summer transfer window hits.

However, it has been claimed that the Gunners have yet to convert their interest in the Belgium midfielder into a formal offer.

SunSport exclusively revealed last month that Arsenal are considering a £30million move for the ex-Monaco man.

The Foxes are reluctant to part ways with the 25-year-old but would be willing to capitalize on him with only one year left on his contract.

In June it was claimed Arsenal had already agreed personal terms with the player.

However, the north London giants are believed to be willing to wait until later in the window to secure his services.

And according to the Guardian, Leicester expect Mikel Arteta’s side to put in an offer for him.

However, they say no offers have come in for Tielemans from any club so far and Manchester United are also said to be keeping an eye on the former Anderlecht star.

However, they add that Leicester are aware of Arteta’s longstanding interest.

Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers has warned teams looking to raid Leicester they will not be “exploited” to sell their best players.

He remarked: “Obviously there is a financial situation within the club that is not ideal for wanting to do business.

“It doesn’t mean we’re being taken advantage of and we don’t want to lose our best players.

“You don’t want to lose your best players and then not be able to get any more. It doesn’t pay off.”

Alongside Tielemans, James Maddison also faces an uncertain future at the King Power Stadium as Newcastle have rejected a £40m bid.

Meanwhile, centre-back Wesley Fofana is believed to be Chelsea’s No 1 target but they have been quoted at a whopping £84m to sign him.

Although goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel is expected to end his 11-year love affair with Leicester after agreeing to a deal to join Ligue 1 club Nice.
