How Arsenal’s supporters sent a transfer message to Youri Tielemans during Leicester clash


A section of Arsenal fans in attendance at the club’s meeting with Leicester City on Saturday were keen to send a message to Foxes star Youri Tielemans, over a potential summer move to north London.

Belgian international Tielemans, of course, has been tipped for an Emirates switch for several months now.

This comes with Mikel Arteta and co, known to be on the lookout for reinforcements in the middle of the park, having identified the former Anderlecht talent as a prime target.

Tielemans’ current terms at the King Power Stadium are due to expire next summer, meaning he could likely be landed for a cut-price fee before the window slams shut.

Leicester’s engine room star, as expected, was afforded a starting berth earlier this afternoon, as his side returned to action with a trip to England’s capital.

Tielemans, for his part, was dominated by his Arsenal counterparts, struggling against the impressive pairing of Granit Xhaka and Thomas Partey.

But that did not stop the Gunners faithful from making clear their desire for the Belgian to land at the Emirates before the summer is out.

Making use of a pre-arranged chant, supporters of Saturday’s hosts could be heard singing:

“Youri Tielemans, we will see you next week.”
