Arsenal identify alternative if Tielemans deal fails


Arsenal identify Lens midfielder Seko Fofana if their pursuit for Leicester City’s Youri Tielemans fails in the transfer window.

Mikel Arteta has kicked-off the season with three points from the Premier League opener against Crystal palace at Selhurst Park.

However, the manager wants to continue to bolster his squad with the services of Youri Tielemans before the window concludes. Adding to that, Arsenal have also understood that it could be difficult to land the Leicester ace this summer.

Mikel Arteta is very keen to land Tielemans to the Emirates this summer in the transfer window.

Now, Fofana has been identified as an alternative that is being discussed among the members of the Arsenal board. However, the Gunners could enter a three-way battle as AC Milan and Newcastle United are also interested in the youngster.

Fofana even admitted to a possible move in the transfer window this summer if a good deal comes knocking. Speaking in an interview he said-

“I’m officially here,”

“After that, anything is possible. I want to have fun and take everything I can take.

We are in a market period in which there is a lot of reflection. You can tell yourself that you will stay or that you will leave, you don’t really know.”

Moroever, Arsenal will look to push for the Lens star but continue to keep Tielemans as their first option to sign. However, assuming the pursuit for the Leicester ace fails, the attention will turn to Fofana and Arteta will go all in.
