Krystian Bielik is hot property in the transfer market during an off-season where demand for outgoing Arsenal players have been scarce. Previous reports have suggested that Bielik would struggle to find a role under manager Unai Emery, with AC Milan looking to snap up the Polish U21 international on the cheap.
Today, the Telegraph claims that leading Championship teams such as West Bromwich Albion, Middlesbrough, Brentford and Derby County are keen to recruit the player for the 2019/20 season.
Bielik has 2 years left on his contract and might command a decent transfer fee considering his strong performances in League One and the recent European U21 Championships. There have also been rumours of Arsenal sanctioning another loan spell for him.
The Championship might, after all, be a natural progression for Bielik to gain experience away from the pressures of the Premier League after a solid season in the English third tier.
Head of Football, Raul Sanllehi, has publicly claimed that a player with 2 years left on his contract would be when the club makes a “difficult” decision on his future with Arsenal selling the player or extending the contract if they see a future with him.
Bielik’s next path in his career would be much clearer within the coming weeks.
