Youri Tielemans can be Arsenal's next Aaron Ramsey with Leicester star 'top target'


However, they still need more goals from other sources. Bukayo Saka is the club’s leading scorer in all competitions with 12 to his name, just ahead of Emile Smith Rowe on 11.

But the likes of Martin Odegaard and Alexandre Lacazette (six) and Gabriel Martinelli (five) have not scored enough. Granit Xhaka’s stunning strike in the win over Manchester United was his first of the season and Thomas Partey is never going to be prolific.

Tielemans is capable of the spectacular from long range and is also a capable set-piece taker. This season hasn’t been his best with Leicester and perhaps the speculation off the pitch has disrupted his performances.

But with over 100 Premier League appearances behind him, Arteta will know exactly what he’s getting. And Arsenal will be filling a hole left by Ramsey’s exit three years ago.
