Arsenal target Tielemans: Every player wants to win trophies

Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans admits he wants to be challenging for trophies.

Tielemans is a target for Arsenal and has stated he is ready to leave the Foxes this summer.

Tielemans refused to add more fuel to the talk of a switch to the Gunners but the 25-year-old admits he has his eyes on claiming more domestic silverware.

Tielemans said: “Every player wants that. That is just natural when you are in the game, you want to win trophies.

“That is the best feeling to win trophies. Obviously every player would say the same, definitely.”

Tielemans showed just why Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has made him a transfer target when he coolly stroked home Belgium’s opener in the 1-1 Nations League draw with Wales on Saturday night.

When asked for an update on his future, Tielemans, who has one year left on his Foxes contract, added:

“No sorry. I have expressed myself on that before and there is nothing new. I don’t think this is the moment and place to discuss that.”

Tielemans will be part of the Red Devils’ squad against Poland on Tuesday before he starts his holidays. He said: “We have so many games that we need breaks.”

But Tielemans, who scored seven goals for Leicester last season, wants to add more goals to his game after netting for Belgium for the fifth time.

He added: “It was a really good goal from a great combination. If I can add more goals to my game then of course it will help the team more and I will be happy.
