Barcelona is working hard to ensure they beat Arsenal to the signature of Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans.

The Belgian has become one of the best players in his position in the league, but he is out of contract at the end of this season.

The Foxes have offered him an extension, but he is reluctant to sign it and continues to deliver fine performances for them.

The former AS Monaco man has become Mikel Arteta’s choice to bolster his midfield, but he is a wanted man.

Fichajes reveals Barcelona is also keen on the midfielder. Xavi Hernandez wants to add the Belgian to his squad mostly because he will be a free agent at the end of the season.

Barcelona have attracted some top talents to their squad recently and they hope he chooses to join their star-studded squad.

Mikel Arteta wants to sign Youri Tielemans in the January transfer window to bolster his team.

The midfielder is out of a contract at Leicester City at the end of this season and hasn’t signed a new one yet.

From several indications, it seems he wants to leave the Foxes, which has encouraged Arsenal to plot a swoop for him.

The Gunners wanted to sign Douglas Luiz in the last transfer window, but Aston Villa held firm to the Brazilian.

He has since signed a contract extension at Villa Park, which makes it harder for the Gunners to add him to their squad.

They could turn to Tielemans now and a report via The Sun says they do not intend to wait until the end of the season.

Mikel Arteta’s team now has a good chance of putting together a strong title challenge and the former midfielder wants to bolster his group.

He believes Tielemans can improve his midfield and make it better for the rigours of the second half of the season.
