The race to secure summer signings before the start of next season is hotting up, with the Premier League’s biggest clubs scrambling to secure their top targets. 

Arsenal could be the busiest of all of the top-flight teams, with Mikel Arteta reportedly planning a huge £200 million spending spree to rebuild the squad after a disastrous last campaign.

One player who has been heavily linked with a move to the Gunners is Leicester City’s James Maddison, however it is now being reported that Liverpool could be jeopardising that deal.

According to Voetbal24, Jurgen Klopp’s side are keen on a move for the Foxes’ Belgian midfielder Youri Tielemans.

Football London claims that Leicester would not be willing to let both players leave and, with Tielemans keen on a move to Anfield, Arsenal may well miss out on Maddison.

Maddison struggled with injuries last term.

Leicester have reportedly slapped a £64 million price tag on Tielemans, who scored the winning goal in last season’s FA Cup final against Chelsea, but Liverpool are apparently willing to meet their demands.

The Foxes would reportedly also demand around £60 million for Maddison, and it’s thought that Arsenal are reluctant to fork out such a high fee.

Liverpool have reportedly identified Tielemans as a replacement for Gini Wijnaldum, who joined Paris Saint-Germain last month after his deal with the Reds expired.

Both Liverpool and Arsenal will be keen to bolster their squads after disappointing seasons last term.
