​Arsenal return for Leicester midfielder Tielemans after Milinkovic-Savic rejection

Arsenal are once again setting their sights on Leicester midfielder Youri Tielemans.

The Belgian is one who has been available all summer, and is eager on a move to the North London club.

However, the Gunners had other transfer plans, including signing Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

According to Il Messaggero, Arsenal had a significant offer rejected by the Italian club, as they bid up to £47 million.

They are unlikely to raise their offer and will turn their attention to Tielemans.

As he only has a year left on his deal, Leicester are ready to sell him for a cut-price fee.

Per journalist Fabrizio Romano, Arsenal can get him for a fee of around £25 million.
