17 year old Krystian Bielik has been dubbed the ‘New Patrick Vieira’ and is considered one of the hottest prospects in European football and Arsene Wenger is clearly a manager known for his ability to convert players with obvious potential into household names.
The Gunners have already made two approaches for the starlet and though he has made just a handful of senrio appearances there is already a growing queue forming for his services with Hamburg and AS Roma known to be keen.
Arsenal could well do with a steely midfield option with the likes of Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini failing to consistently impress in either holding or defensive midfield roles though clearly a move for Bielik is a long term solution to the problem and Wenger would do well to invest in a proven performer this month.
