Arsenal handed major double transfer blow ahead of potential summer business15 January 2022
Arsenal look to complete major business
Following their 130 million outlay in the summer, Arsenal are keen to keep flexing their financial muscles in the coming windows.
As per CBS, the Gunners are looking at a summer move for Youri Tielemans, currently at Leicester City.
Arsenal are actively considering Tielemans. Important to note meetings with his agent were with a view to a summer move. Leicester prefer to keep him in January but Rodgers admits “he has to look at every option”. Somewhat opens door to a January sale if #LCFC find a replacement.

With 18 months left on his contract, a move either in January or the summer has not been ruled out, and the Gunners could yet strike.
Meanwhile, they are also keen on a move for Fiorentina hitman Dusan Vlahovic, which would set them back a princely sum.

And now, the club may have been dealt a blow in their transfer kitty, with a pair of potential departures now in doubt.
Pair of exits off?
Now, it appears as though a trio of Arsenal players’ futures are up in the air.
This comes as Olympique Marseilles have been hit with a transfer ban for the next two transfer windows.
With Matteo Guendouzi currently on loan with an option to buy on the behalf of the French side, and young centre-back William Saliba on a straight-loan, their futures are now up in the air.

Jorge Sampaoli’s side have also been credited with an interest in Sead Kolasinac this window, but whether they can now make a move for him seems doubtful.
In turn, Arsenal will miss out on at least two potential transfer windfalls (Guendouzi and Kolasinac) that could have helped them fund their spending sprees.
