We’ve been heavily linked with a move for promising young starlet Krystian Bielik in recent weeks, and a £2.5m deal to bring the defensive midfielder to the Emirates appears to be close.
Times journalist Rory Smith claims that Dick Law is set to fly out to Warsaw tomorrow, with the Arsenal man looking to finalise a deal for the 17-year-old Pole.
Reliably informed Dick Law will be in Warsaw tomorrow to try and finalise a deal to sign Krystian Bielik. Legia want £2.5m upfront. #afc

The tough tackling 6 ft 2 inch star looks to be a typical Arsene Wenger signing, and while he may be exactly the type of player we have been crying out for for so long, he is unlikely to be ready for the first team just yet.
Nevertheless, at £2.5m the Legia Warsaw man should prove a valuable addition to the squad, and could end up being the long term solution to our lack of physical presence in midfield.
Mathieu Flamini and Mikel Arteta have been excellent servants for the club, but there is no denying that we need some fresh legs in the centre of the park.
