If the new transfer rumor is true, Yuri Tillmans to Arsenal is likely to be even more advanced.

The Gunners had been hunting the Tielemans for much of the summer.

In 2019, Leicester City spent £35 million [Sky Sports] Upon signing the Belgium international, but with one year remaining on his contract, the Foxes must either sell this summer or risk losing a key asset for at least 12 months from now.

It was reported last week that Arsenal had already agreed personal terms with the player, indicating that negotiations are already at a very advanced stage.

And if Fabrizio Romano and TMW are right, Tillmans could come close to the Emirates Stadium.

This is because both Romano and the Italian publication have reported that Lucas Torreira is about to sign for Galatasaray.

With Torreira a similar midfielder and player to the Tielemans, it is very likely that North Londoners will be waiting for the departure of Torreira – who earns £75,000 a week – to speed up their plan to bring in the Belgian.

But with South America gone, it now appears likely that Arsenal will step up their pursuit of Tillmans and cross that line.

Arsenal are already a big spender in the Premier League this summer with £120m, and their combined earnings are likely to reach £150m.

Arsenal will focus on tonight’s Premier League meeting with Crystal Palace, but don’t be surprised if Edu is in the shadows, working on Tielemans.

With Torreira virtually gone, it seems to be a matter of time.
