Transfer news specialist Fabrizio Romano has confirmed the already expected departure of Leicester City ‘Starman’ Youri Tielemans. Here is an update on the situation.

We all know it is coming. We have known it has been coming for quite some time. The question is not whether or not the Belgian is leaving, it was a question of when and to who. Now, we have an idea of the answer.

Top European clubs are interested in the midfielder, a player who last season and at the start of this season was indispensable to the side and who single-handedly (along with Ayoze Perez) won the Foxes the FA Cup. From Real Madrid to either of the Manchester clubs and now long-term admirers Arsenal.

Is it a disaster that Leicester won’t be in Europe next season?. dark. Next

Leicester City’s Belgian’s UCL demand

Romano is the expert when it comes to transfer news and speculation. His sources are wide-ranging and highly accurate. Therefore, it comes as no surprise when he confirmed to the world what we have known for months.

After the King Power club failed to attain Champions League football for the second time running, the Belgian had likely already decided it was time to leave for a consistent UCL side. Maybe had either last season or this season gone differently the situation would be completely different.

Nevertheless, we know that Brendan Rodgers’ side would like to recoup their transfer cost for the player to invest in a direct replacement or a more attack-minded player. That style of midfielder remains critical for ‘RodgersBall’ and the Starman’s drop-off on form has detrimentally impacted the team.

It is still true that Tielemans is a world-class passer, a possessively strong individual, and always aware of different avenues to progress the ball. However, the setup of the team is not made for him at the moment, with Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall and James Maddison more important to our play style.

When the Belgian international does leave, Arsenal has always been admiring the player. Once again, they are considering a move for our Tielemans, but have not decided yet. Plus, they have to confirm UCL for any chance. Good luck to them. When the player leaves, I hope it is to a Real Madrid. To a foreign super club we do not have to face. Should Tielemans choose Arsenal the Foxes should be suitably mad at the star passer.
