Although the speculation about Arsenal and Leicester midfielder Youri Tielemans continues, it seems that Mikel Arteta now has doubts about the player.
The Belgian international spent the whole of the summer being linked with a move to the Emirates, although nothing transpired in the end.
There have been suggestions that the North London club were content to bide their time and wait until the end of the season when Tielemans is a free agent.
However, it now appears that Arteta has reservations about the whole idea, with Tielemans lack of mobility thought to be one issue.
And his stock would not have been helped by the dismal performance of Belgium at the World Cup, eliminated at the group stage, after losing to Morocco and failing to beat Croatia.
Leicester have made no secret of their desire to keep the midfielder at the King Power Stadium, but, so far, he has resisted all overtures about a new deal.
