Leicester midfielder Tielemans agrees Arsenal contract terms

Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans has agreed a contract with Arsenal.

However it has been claimed that the Gunners are yet to make an official offer to the Foxes, with Manchester United and Newcastle joining the race to sign Tielemans.

Transfer expert Ben Jacobs said: "Youri Tielemans update. Still no formal offers made. Tielemans wants to join Arsenal and Edu still in touch with his agent.

"Arsenal have agreed terms, and worked on the deal for a year, but have never placed an official bid.

"Fabio Vieira's arrival doesn't rule out Tielemans. Arsenal still deciding whether to bid. Erik ten Hag is also interested.

"Tielemans was actually a Ralf Rangnick target but didn't want to join Man Utd under him.

"If Arsenal reach an agreement with Leicester, told Tielemans will sign. But for now, Arsenal haven't decided on him.

"The genuine interest from Man Utd may force Edu to make a decision quicker than expected, especially if ten Hag pitch proves appealing."
