Tillman has been a crucial piece for a Leicester side that has struck a balance between European football and the Premier League this season.
The Belgian has scored six goals and three assists in the Premier League and has been consistent in Rodgers’ side since his permanent move from Monaco in the summer of 2019 – having contributed at least nine goals in his last three full seasons. foxes.
His links with Arsenal go back to his early days at Anderlecht when he had previously been revealed by the club, and although he refused to move to Arsenal, he stated his reasons for disdain in an interview with the Evening Standard back in 2017: “I knew he Not much will change with Arsenal.
“Their management wanted to keep the same group of players together in order to finish the Premier League. I had to be honest with myself and take a look at the midfielders that Arsenal have.
“They are top-class players. I knew I wouldn’t get many chances with the first team, so I didn’t think more about joining them. I never said no to any club. But I made it clear where I wanted to go.”
Tielemans can do a lot for Arsenal by his composure in the opponent’s third defensive position, enabling the Gunners to build continuous attacks, with the Belgian averaging 19.86 touches in the offensive third per 90 while maintaining an average of 2.85 per 90 shot-creating movements .
Qualification for the Champions League could be the deciding factor, according to Romano. And with Arteta’s squad on track to meet this requirement, fans will be excited to sign a player that not only suits their playing style but adds much-needed depth to an engine room that has been lacking in quality enhancements this season.
Sometimes that term, Arteta has had to call up players like Mohamed Elneny and Albert Sambi Lukunga to fill in the injury and suspension gaps, but Tielemans will offer a much bigger option when the squad needs to be refreshed.
