Arsenal chief Edu hints at more transfers with Leicester

ARSENAL chief Edu has hinted at making more transfers this summer.

And Leicester star Youri Tielemans is next in his sights.

SunSport exclusively revealed that Arsenal are ready to pounce for the Belgian, 25, to boost their midfield options.

The Gunners have been making huge moves in the window, signing Porto’s Fabio Vieira before landing Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus.

Oleksandr Zinchenko became Mikel Arteta’s latest big-name signing when he joined from the Etihad in a £30million deal yesterday.

And Tielemans is now next in line to arrive at the Emirates.

The playmaker has just one year left on his Leicester contract and, like Zinchenko, would cost £30m.

Manchester United are also monitoring Tielemans as a back-up to top target Frenkie de Jong.

But Arsenal are confident of winning the race by making a firm offer.

And transfer guru Edu admits he is ready to dive back into the market for further reinforcements.

He said: “There’s still a lot to do, we are in the middle of the transfer window and things can happen.

“We are prepared for every single situation, opportunities maybe can happen.”

Arsenal have also welcomed back several loanees, including Hector Bellerin and Lucas Torreira, to leave Arteta with a large squad.

And the Spaniard has made no secret of his desire to trim the numbers, especially if any more signings arrive.

Arteta said: “We have to [sell]. We have a big squad and now we have to make things happen.

“We have to make some decisions on the players that we’re not going to be using consistently and be fair with them.

“That’s a process that is going to start very soon.”
