Krystian Bielik is reportedly wanted by his old club Legia Warsaw on loan this month, and is in talks with the Polish outfit with a view to agreeing a temporary deal.
Bielik has recently recovered from a lengthy injury and could be sent out on loan for more playing time. According to the Guardian’s David Hynter, his old club Legia Warsaw are interested in doing a deal.

Bielik is pretty far down in the pecking order at the club. Calum Chambers and Rob Holding are only 22 and are filling first-team spots in the squad. Then there’s the new signing, Konstantinos Mavropanos, who the coaching staff seem to rate highly.
With Arsenal out of the FA Cup as well, Bielik’s route into the first team is cluttered. A loan would be the most sensible option for him. He impressed on at Birmingham last season, and was due to go out on loan again earlier this campaign. Unfortunately, an injury prevented any move from happening.
The 20-year-old joined Arsenal from Legia in January 2015. He has just two first-team appearances to his name, which both came from the bench in the League Cup.
