Arsenal are ready to step up their pursuit of Belgian midfielder Youri Tielemans once the current round of international fixtures is over.
Although the transfer window for English clubs has been open since Friday, very little business has been done so far because many potential targets are away with their countries, playing in Nation’s League matches and other fixtures.
However, with the curtain set to finally fall on what has been a very long season, the pace of activity is expected to ramp up in the coming days.
And that could see Arsenal lodge a bid for the Belgian international midfielder in the coming days.
Leicester have yet to set a price for the 25-year old who has just one year left on his current contract at the King Power Stadium, but they are already reconciled to him leaving the club as he seeks a fresh challenge.
