Arsenal have agreed personal terms with Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans.
Earlier in the window, manager Arteta refused to be drawn on Belgian international Tielemans.
However, CBS says the Leicester man could be on the verge of a move to the capital.
Tielemans only has a year left on his contract and has agreed on terms with Arsenal.
There had been suggestions of a swap deal involving Tielemans and Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno. Leicester are reportedly interested in the German international, who is effectively third choice at the Emirates, but Leno’s preference for a London move makes Fulham the more likely destination.
