Cold: The Journalist dismisses Arsenal's transfer blow as the 25-year-old could now sign a new deal ...

As he told talkSPORT, Leicester City are now confident in keeping Youri Tielemans this summer, and the Arsenal transfer target may sign a new deal at the King Power Stadium.

The 25-year-old talkSPORT journalist stated that if Arsenal were a Champions League club, he would be at Arsenal by now, and that his intentions of moving to north London have gone cold.

Fabio Vieira, the title-winning coach, has been added to the Gunners' starting line from Porto, while the club's new coach is dissatisfied with his transfer to the English Premier League club.

Gabriel Jesus, a Manchester City striker, is getting closer to wearing Arsenal's garb, but he was seen recently hugging Edu Gaspar.

Despite Arsenal's desire to add Leicester's technical brain, Tielemans, to their squad, it appears that it may not happen right now.

Crook said the club was hoping to sign Youri Tielemans. That seems to have gone cold right now. He may well sign a new deal with Leicester City.

If Arsenal were a Champions League club, he would be there by now.

The more time that goes by, the more likely it is that he stays at Leicester. I know they offered him a very attractive contract offer, comparable to that which is on the table in north London. Perhaps even a release clause.

I think Leicester City are confident in their ability to keep him.

WHO ELSE WILL ARSENAL TARGET?

Arsenal needed to make some serious statements in the summer transfer market after missing out on Champions League football.

Although the move does not guarantee Champions League football for the following season, one of their biggest weaknesses from the previous campaign was a lack of quality and depth.

If Jesus is added, perhaps another midfield player, another defensive brain, and perhaps even more goals will be added.

After being stubbed to the line by Tottenham the following season, the Gunners should be among the favourites to secure Champions League football.
