A £2.4m deal has been agreed to bring top Arsenal target Krystian Bielik to the Emirates…
Polish midfielder Krystian Bielik is on the verge of signing for Arsenal, with the North London club’s third bid for the talented youngster accepted by current club Legia Warsaw, according to the Guardian.
Having only just turned 17, Bielik is already showing huge promise in Poland. The dominant defensive midfielder is the kind of player Arsenal have been missing for years now, and would add some steel and grit to a physically lacking side.
Arsene Wenger is thought to be extremely keen on the young star, and was keen to get the deal done quickly. Arsenal saw two bids rejected, but look to have finally come to an agreement with the capital based club.
The versatile midfielder will join up with Arsenal immediately following the completion of the £2.4m deal, as opposed to returning to Legia on loan as was originally suggested.
Wenger apparently believes that the Under-17s international may be ready to make the step up to first team football already, but if not then Arsenal should prove the perfect club to further his development.
