Don't worry, we hadn't heard of him either.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed that a fee, reported to be around the £2.4 million mark, has been agreed to sign Legia Warsaw 17-year-old Krystian Bielik. The teenager is set to have a medical with the North London club later today.

The Polish midfielder has played for his country's Under-16s side, and only signed for Legia from their rivals Lech Poznan last July. Despite his young age he has made six appearances in all competitions for the Polish side, although he is expected to have to wait for his chance in the Arsenal team.

His signing has been met with mixed response from Arsenal fans, with many unsure why a young midfielder is being prioritised with more obvious needs in defence and upfront. As always, some supporters have gone into absolute meltdown following the move. Here's a roundup of all the best responses on Twitter.
