Arsenal is in danger of losing one of their best young players if they do not give him a proper opportunity next season and that player is Krystian Bielik.
They are already on thin ice with the 21-year-old and it is not like he has not warned the club what will happen if he is not given senior football. Only last month he said
“My future is unknown but there is one thing I can say for sure: I will definitely not go back to Arsenal Under-23 team.
“At this stage it wouldn’t make sense. If I do not receive the possibility to join the first team permanently, I will have to look for other solutions.
“I feel like a senior player now so I want to play senior football.
According to some reports, clubs are already lining up to sign him and not just in England but also clubs from, Italy, Germany, Belgium and Holland have all apparently made enquiries about Bielik.
Arsenal is running the risk of becoming a feeder club for almost every major league if they are not careful. OK, I know that is being a little silly but what are we supposed to feel when so many of our youngsters are all going out on loan or moving permanently and becoming a success.
We all know that Bielik had a good season with Charlton Athletic and impressed all that saw him play and his performances in the recent U21 Euros cannot be ignored, well, maybe by Arsenal they can.
It would be a travesty if we were to lose the young Pole, we have so little money and need the defence strengthening, I mean, can he do a worse job than Mustafi? I doubt it.
He is very versatile, he is a good central defender but if anything, he is now a better defensive midfielder because of the way he was utilised in that position by Charlton, he oozes confidence and he has that leadership quality about him.
Finally, I watched this video by DT of AFTV fame and he covers Bielik very well, it is definitely worth a watch, he actually makes a lot of sense.
