On Wednesday, the Evening Standard did a round-up of Arsenal’s expected business in January. In terms of outgoings, they confirmed that Mesut Özil is set to stay at the club, whilst Aaron Ramsey will continue to discuss the terms of his departure with his potential future teams.

For the incomings, they claimed Arsenal are considering signing cover at centre-back, and they added that Legia Warsaw goalkeeper Radoslaw Majecki ‘could join’ too.

Majecki is just 19, but he’s already won himself a place as Warsaw’s first-choice goalkeeper. He’s kept five clean sheets in seven league matches for the senior side, as well as keeping one in the second of his two cup games, whilst saving a penalty to win a shootout in the first.

Last month, Polish outlet Przeglad Sportowy wrote that Majecki was a target for Arsenal. They claimed that after sending scouts to Legia’s games in recent weeks, Arsenal were deciding whether to make a bid for the goalkeeper in January.

The Evening Standard echoed those reports, adding Arsenal have also been watching Majecki for the Poland u20s. Both outlets added that the signing would likely involve loaning the player back to Poland until the summer. It’s unlikely he’d be ready for the Gunners’ first-team just yet.
