Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans reportedly remains open to signing for Arsenal, despite the Gunners missing out on Champions League football.

Arsenal have reportedly been handed a boost in their efforts to sign Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans.

While two new forwards may be at the top of the Gunners' agenda this summer, it is widely expected that Mikel Arteta will also strengthen in the centre of the pitch.

Missing out on Champions League football naturally makes Arsenal's job of convincing players to move to the Emirates Stadium much more difficult.

Nevertheless, according to The Telegraph, Tielemans is still prepared to consider a switch to North London due to an openness to featuring in the Europa League.

The Belgium international will not be short of offers during the upcoming transfer window courtesy of just one year remaining on his contract at the King Power Stadium.

Reports have indicated that the Foxes may be prepared to accept offers in the region of £25m, with other Premier League and top European clubs likely to be monitoring the situation.

Despite the possibility of a higher-profile name moving to Arsenal, previous fringe player Mohamed Elneny is said to have signed a contract extension.
