Confirmed: Midfielder Set For Arsenal Medical, Will Sign 3-Year Deal

By on January 15, 2015

Arsenal are closing in on their first January signing with Legia Warsaw confirming this afternoon that midfielder Krystian Bielik will have a medical in London on Friday.

The 17-year-old has been strongly linked with a move to Arsenal in recent weeks and as we reported on Tuesday night, chief transfer negotiator Dick Law flew out to Poland on Wednesday to hold face-to-face talks.

Having already seen bids of £1.6m and £2m rejected by Legia, it seems the personal touch did the trick as our third bid of €3m (£2.4m) was accepted yesterday afternoon.

Legia have now confirmed on their website that Bielik will travel to London to undergo a medical on Friday, and the youngster says he’s fulfilling his dreams by becoming an Arsenal player.

Should the midfielder successfully pass his medical then reports suggest he’ll sign a three-year deal and will link-up with the first team squad with immediate effect, and won’t be loaned out for the rest of the season.

So it looks as though we’re closing in on our first signing of the January window. He’s not the marquee signing some of us are hoping for, but he sounds like a great talent, so let’s welcome him to the club and wish him all the best.
