Leicester City sources continue to insist that the club are expecting a bid from Arsenal for Youri Tielemans, who they value at £25-30m.

The Guardian report that Leicester City expect Arsenal to move for Belgium midfielder Youri Tielemans this summer.

The Daily Mail confirm Arsenal remain interested in Tielemans, who is valued at around £25m, but the Gunners are yet to submit an official bid – as has been repeated throughout the summer.

CBS Sports’ Ben Jacobs writes that Leicester expect an offer for Tielemans soon, with an Arsenal move still “very possible” despite their lack of bid. Jacobs claims Leicester are looking for closer to £30m.

Jacobs adds that Tielemans understandably wants the uncertainty over his future resolved. He’s been waiting a long time now for the bids to come in.

TalkSPORT reported recently that Arsenal were yet to make a move for Youri Tielemans in part due to concerns over his physicality.

But Fabrizio Romano claims there’s no suggestion Arsenal’s hesitance is due to such an issue. The Gunners remain in contact with Tielemans, it’s just that the current priority in that position is outgoings.

Romano still expects Tielemans to leave before the end of the summer window, with the player now in the final year of his contract.

The Telegraph recently claimed Mikel Arteta was a fan of the midfielder and driving a move, and The Athletic also suggested Arsenal had an admiration for Tielemans as a player.

Yet we’re still waiting for a bid. Until Arsenal make a formal move, the rest is just speculation.
