Arsenal want £10m to sell Krystian Bielik this summer, according to reports in Poland, with Legia Warsaw set to earn a €500k cut of the deal.
Legia.net report that Arsenal have an agreement with Bielik’s former club that they’ll pay them €500,000 when they sell him on. That looks like it could well happen this summer, as the Poland u21 international appears to be out of favour with Unai Emery.
According to the report, Arsenal are hoping to earn £10m from Bielik’s sale, with a number of teams in the Championship interested. Derby County, West Bromwich Albion, Middlesbrough and Brentford are all listed.
AC Milan have also been linked with Bielik in the past, though there have been no concrete reports of a bid from anywhere at this stage.
Bielik impressed with Charlton in League One last season, helping them to promotion and scoring four goals in 34 appearances. The concern with him is that he’s suffered from so many injuries that it’s impossible to know if he can be relied upon.
In the 2017/18 season, Bielik only played four games, including youth matches. Despite featuring a lot for Charlton last season, Bielik still missed over a month with injury in September, and then had an extremely disrupted end to the league season:
The 21-year-old returned to help Charlton make it through the play-offs, but you can understand Arsenal’s hesitance to put faith in him.
At the same time, Bielik is clearly talented. If a club can manage his game time properly to keep him fit, he could be a very worthwhile addition for £10m.
