Meet Midfield Wonderkid Arsenal Are Locked In Bidding War For
Arsenal have upped their bid to buy the Polish midfielder Krystian Bielik but they are playing typical hardball in the negotiations.
Having had a bid turned down last month, the Gunners have now offered a £1.7m deal for the 17-year old according to The Standard. His club Legia Warsaw are holding out for £2.5m and with Hamburg reputedly interested in the player dubbed as the 'New Vieira', Arsenal fans will hope that the club stop mucking around for what amounts to the loose change in Arsene Wenger's coat pockets.
Tough tackling, agile on the ball despite his stature, and with excellent distribution skills, it's not difficult to see where the Vieira comparisons have come from. Have a look at his highlights reel and imagine him in an Arsenal shirt.
