I don't know what it is but I have a really good feeling of us signing Tielemans. I posted to the eds asking if we had interest in him, which we do. But. I'd love to know your thoughts as to whether he would be a quality acquisition. I've watched him since he played for Anderlecht and he's got the capabilities that's for sure.

I agree mate, would be a great fit for this team. Got all the right elements.

100% mate. I should have also mentioned and thanked the eds who stated that whilst we do have sustained interest in Tielemans, he is also on the radar of several other clubs.

{Ed002's Note - Youri Tielemans (CM) right now he will not sign a new contract so will be available in the summer at a reduced fee if he doesn't change his mind. His agent confirmed that there is interest from Real Madrid who are looking for a Luka Modric replacement, interest from Spurs and that he has been approached by a third party representing Newcastle. He is aware that other clubs, including Bayern Munich and Liverpool, have scouted the player but not declared an interest. Interest of the Manchester sides has probably gone as both are looking at other midfield options. Arsenal and Juventus provide wildcard options but Arsenal will have to focus on fixing other issues in the squad first and Juventus, whilst needing significant midfield changes are looking to preferred options. I suspect that Real Madrid will shift their interest leaving Spurs and Arsenal to work on a transfer.}

As always ed002 I greatly appreciate your insight. Thank you!

I wouldn’t be upset with that signing. However, I still prefer Bissouma, in that he works like an absolute trojan, allowing other players, like an Ode, to go do their thing further up the pitch. Can we be greedy and get both, and we can always recoup some outlay by shipping Xhaka out?

30 May 2022 16:07:33
Tough ask especially when out priorities lie elsewhere. Unfortunately, I do not see Xhaka being shipped out soon either.

Your probably right CAB, in which case, if it’s one midfielder, and there was a chance of getting Bissouma, I would take him every time over Tielemans. I just think he plugs a really important gap more than Tielemans would.

{Ed014's Note - not a fan of Tielemens myself.

30 May 2022 18:50:34
I'd expect most clubs would want to wait until the investigation into Bissouma is concluded before moving for him, obviously innocent until proven guilty, but a pretty risky move before then.

What investigating.

31 May 2022 20:47:27
They didn't post my reply, I assume they don't want me to say on here, but you will be able to find it by searching for him.

31 May 2022 23:06:02
It’s obviously a reason for any club to be cautious, but this has been going on a while, and in between he was allowed to leave the country to play at Afcon, so I would assume if there was hard evidence he would already have been charged.
