Arsenal are considering signing 19-year-old Radoslaw Majecki in January, before loaning the player back to Legia Warsaw for the remainder of the season, according to reports in Poland.

Polish outlet Przeglad Sportowy write that Majecki wants to follow in the footsteps of former Arsenal keeper Lukasz Fabianski, and he may well get the chance to do so in the coming seasons.

Arsenal have reportedly been watching the Poland u20 international, and Legia may be open to selling due to their difficult financial situation at the moment. The Polish outlet think Majecki could be a long-term replacement for Petr Cech.

After sending scouts to Legia’s games in recent weeks, Arsenal are now deciding whether to make a bid for Majecki in January. Signing the goalkeeper on a permanent deal before loaning him back would allow him to continue his development, improve Legia’s financial situation and secure the Gunners a goalkeeper for the future. A good result all around.

Majecki started the season with Legia’s second team, but after impressing for the first team in a Polish Cup victory in late October, he got his chance to shine in the league. Since then he’s played every minute in all competitions, keeping six clean sheets in his last seven games.

The goalkeeper has also impressed for Poland in the u20 Elite League, keeping two clean sheets in four matches in the competition. The 6’4″ star certainly needs more experience before he can become a starter for Arsenal, but he may well be a good signing for the future.
