“I’ve Made A Decision To Join Arsenal, I’m Not Going To Change It”
Some positive transfer news to bring you as Krystian Bielik has confirmed he’s decided to join Arsenal and expects a deal to be agreed soon.
We’ve been strongly linked with the Polish youngster in recent weeks and reports yesterday claimed we’d seen our second offer, believed to be worth around £1.6m, rejected by Legia Warsaw.
However, it appears we’ve now received a timely boost as Bielik has confirmed he’s decided to leave and join Arsenal, and hopes a deal between the two clubs will be agreed soon.
‘I’ve made a decision [to join Arsenal] and I’m not going to change it,’ he said.
‘I am looking forward to an agreement between the heads of the clubs. I realise that the negotiations may take some time.
‘I am, however, confident it will happen soon.’ source: Metro
Negotiations with Legia are ongoing but the Polish outfit will now be under even more pressure to sell now that Bielik has expressed his desire to leave.
In the end, the deal should eventually be agreed at around £2m and personal terms shouldn’t be a problem, so it looks like we’re close to sealing our first January transfer.
Bielik is a highly-rated defensive midfielder but at just 17, I doubt he’ll be making an impression on the first team any time soon, so he’ll be one for the future.
