Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans is reportedly "fully sold" on a move to Arsenal.

The Belgian wants to leave the Foxes this summer, with the Gunners and Manchester United keen on his signature.

CBS reporter Ben Jacobs has claimed that Tielemans would prefer to join Arsenal over United.

"He's fully sold on a move to Arsenal, so if Manchester United were to bid for Tielemans, they will only get him if Arsenal decide that's fine, go ahead and take the player," Jacobs told GiveMeSport. "It's not really a head-to-head.

"I think that Manchester United's potential interest in Tielemans, which is still to be stood up, could just catalyse Arsenal to make another bid or may have Arsenal say 'I'm sorry, but we're not interested. Go ahead and join Manchester United if you want'.

"But I don't think that Manchester United can beat Arsenal to Tielemans. It's not a case of decide between the two."
