Barcelona fear 25-year-old target has agreed to join Premier League giants: Reports

Barcelona believes that Leicester City star Youri Tielemans has already signed a personal contract with Arsenal.

Since his £35 million transfer from Monaco to the Foxes in the summer of 2019, Tielemans, 25, has been an essential starter. After scoring the winning goal in the 2021 FA Cup final, he has become something of a cult hero at King Power Stadium.

Since the beginning of the summer transfer window, the Belgian, a right-footed midfielder with shooting and passing skills, has been the subject of rumors. He decided to stay put despite having connections to Arsenal and Liverpool.

Tielemans has made 17 appearances for Leicester this season, scoring three goals and assisting once.
As per MARCA, Barcelona has managed a blow in their exchange quest for Tielemans. At the moment, the Catalan giants are concerned that the player has already confirmed his commitment to another team, like Arsenal.

The Gunners are considered the front-runners in the race for the former Anderlecht player after failing to entice Tielemans earlier this summer due to differences in transfer fees. According to SPORT, the Belgian has already been contacted by the team coached by Mikel Arteta about a possible switch.

Tielemans was a member of Belgium’s 2022 FIFA World Cup squad. He played in three games on the group stage, but only once did he start.
Tielemans has scored 27 goals and 25 assists for the team coached by Brendan Rodgers in 175 games across all competitions.

Barcelona, then again, has likewise been connected with other top midfielders in Europe in their main goal to supplant Sergio Busquets. Wolverhampton Vagabonds’ Ruben Neves, Genuine Sociedad’s Martin Zubimendi, and Chelsea’s Jorginho are as of now on their exchange radar.

The Premier League defender, who is 28 years old, is a target for Barcelona: According to SPORT

Barcelona is looking at Manchester City center-back Aymeric Laporte for January of next year to fill in for club legend Gerard Pique, who retired.

In the beginning, the Blaugrana were eager to acquire Athletic Bilbao defender Inigo Martinez for free in the upcoming summer. However, due to his favorable age, Laporte has risen to the top of their transfer wishlist.

Laporte, 28, has been an effective protector for Manchester City since his appearance from Athletic Bilbao for £57 million in the colder time of the year of 2018. In a total of 163 games played for his current club, he has scored 12 goals and provided four assists, winning 11 trophies.
