Youri Tielemans left Anderlecht and joined AS Monaco in the summer window and the midfielder has scored twice in seven appearances in Ligue 1 this season.
Despite changing clubs a few months ago, it has not stopped him attracting interest from clubs across Europe and if a report from El Gol Digital is to be believed, Juventus and Arsenal are after the Belgium international.
He’s viewed as a young player with a great potential by the Turin club and in principle, he has emerged as one of the contenders to strengthen their midfield. It’s claimed the Gunners also have a desire to bring him to the Emirates and their manager, Unai Emery is an admirer of the 21-year-old.
The former Sevilla man is aware of Tielemans’ qualities and would urge the north London club to make an approach for him in January.
He still has more than four years left on his deal at Stade Louis II and has been playing regularly so far, which is why it makes little or no sense for the player to leave his current employers at the start of the next year.
Should Les Monégasques decide to part ways with their player, then the potential suitors will have to table a lucrative offer to convince the French club to sanction his sale.
In the summer, Monaco raised over €280m through player sales and spent above €100m in bringing new faces to the club, meaning they are not really under pressure raise funds by allowing their players leave.
In other words, it hardly makes sense for Tielemans or Monaco to look forward for a transfer in January, unless and until the relationship between the two turns sour in the coming months.
That’s possible, Tielemans has had some poor reviews lately in the French media.
