The Gunners are set to take a step back in their pursuit of the Leicester City midfielder while they edge closer to securing their other targets
Arsenal have cooled their interest in Youri Tielemans as they look to push through their move for Gabriel Jesus.
Leicester City midfielder Tielemans has been one of the club’s key targets during the transfer window and had been expected to join for around £25 million ($30.5m).
But GOAL has been told that the Gunners have taken a step back in their pursuit of the 25-year-old while they focus on completing other deals this summer, including that of long-term target Jesus.
Are Arsenal signing Gabriel Jesus?
Arsenal remain firmly in the hunt for Brazilian duo Gabriel Jesus and Raphinha.
GOAL has learned that Jesus’ representatives are now travelling to England in a bid to push through the transfer.
The Gunners are also keen on bringing Leeds winger Raphinha to north London and believe they could get a deal done for the winger, providing Barcelona do not rekindle their interest in the 25-year-old.
The 22-year-old arrived in London on Friday to undergo a medical and complete the formalities on his £30m ($37m) switch.
Arsenal hope to announce the signing of Vieira within the next 48 hours.
