Arsenal make first major January addition

Arsenal have completed the signing of 17-year-old Polish star Krystian Bielik.

The teenage ace will arrive from Legia Warsaw for an undisclosed fee and is widely regarded as one of his nation’s top young players.

He made his senior deut for his old side at the age of 16, and has featured in the Europa League already.

Primarily a defensive midfielder, Bielik can also function at centre-back and has been lauded for his talent and potential.

The Gunners have been chasing the teenager for the past few weeks, with Wenger having made his addition one of his January priorities.

It is as of yet unknown as to whether or not Bielik will slot straight into the Arsenal first-team set-up, but with a number of injuries to key players in the heart of the Londoners’ midfield, there is a possibility that he could be called into action.
