“Arsene Wenger Wants To Sign Me As Soon As Possible”

By on December 24, 2014

It appears Arsenal are on the verge of sealing a deal for highly-rated defensive midfielder Krystian Bielik after the youngster confirmed Arsene Wenger’s plans for him.

We’ve been strongly linked with a move for Bielik in recent weeks and speculation intensified after the 16-year-old visited the clubs training ground earlier this month.

Newspaper reports claim we’ve already agreed a fee in the region of €3m with his current club Legia Warsaw and now the player has confirmed that Arsene wants to sign him as soon as possible and has promised he’ll train with the first team if he accepts the move.

Bielik is quoted by the Polish media as saying:

” [Arsene] Wenger said what he sees in me, then asked me about my strengths. It turns out that we had a similar opinion.”

“He [Wenger] said I would start the training with the first-team, under his guidance, and then it all depends on me. He knows that I have the skills, am determined to win and he wants to sign me as soon as possible to start working with me.

“I would train with the first-team and play in the junior teams- U18, U19 or U21- and Wenger says that if I am good enough to stay in the first-team, I will remain in it.”

It seems all that remains is to decide whether the deal goes through in January or next summer. Clearly Arsene wants to push through the deal next month but Legia are understood to want Bielik to remain with them until the end of the season.

    Quite frankly what we don’t need now is 16 year olds and the click bait headline on this story doesn’t do your credibility much good.
