Fee Agreed: Arsenal Have Midfielder Bid Accepted

By on January 13, 2015

We’ve got some excellent news to bring you as it looks as though Arsenal are set to conclude their first January signing with the Guardian reporting that we’ve had a bid accepted by Legia Warsaw for Krystian Bielik.

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

Having already seen bids of £1.6m and £2m rejected by Legia, it seems the personal touch has done the trick as the Guardian claim the negotiations went well and our third bid was accepted this afternoon.

The newspaper doesn’t state what the fee is, but they do believe the deal includes various add ons with the deal expected to be worth up to £2.4m, and Bielik will join the club immediately rather than stay with Legia until the end of the season, as they have previously requested.

So it looks as though we’re now close to securing our first signing of the January window and although he may not be the ‘big name’ many fans are craving, Bielik certainly sounds like he has a bright future ahead of him.

We’ll bring you more news on this deal as we get it…..

    The previous article said we are signing an injury prone Gundogenand this one says we are signing a seventeen year old. Well that’s our defensive midfield problems sorted.
