Arsenal ‘in pole position’ for Youri Tielemans’ free transfer
“We have several players out of contract at the end of the season. My approach has been to work with him and get out of the situation we’re in. So everything else is not spoken from my perspective.
“We had several long talks over the summer. Clearly, there is no doubt that even a young boy who is clearly focused like Youri and is very professional, can make an impact. But he has been completely focused.
“He doesn’t let that get to him. He is a top notch professional. He sees the game as I see it. On the pitch he understands what’s going on in the game and that’s all he can do, give his best. His recent performances have been excellent.”
Arsenal also remain interested in the transfer of PSV winger Cody Gakpo before the January window. Gakpo, who played the Gunners in the Europa League last week, could be available at a reduced price.
