- Tielemans attracts Galatasaray attention
- Unhappy at Aston Villa
- Hasn’t started a single game
WHAT HAPPENED? Prior to deciding to sign for the Villans for free, the midfielder had attention from the reigning Turkish champions in the previous transfer window. He is still awaiting his first league start for Emery’s side, and claims that the 26-year-old’s relationship with Emery is strained surfaced earlier this month.
THE BIGGER PICTURE: In the summer, Galatasaray spoke with a representative of the Belgian international. According to reports, the agency has since communicated with the Turkish powerhouses, saying that ‘we can meet again’ regarding Tielemans and that Galatasaray will make a move for him in January. Fanatik also reported that Okan Buruk, the manager of Galatasaray, is pushing to sign the ex-Leicester ace.

WHAT NEXT? It remains to be seen if Tielemans can fight his way into Emery’s plans, or if he will be forced to seek playing time elsewhere in January.
