Legia Warsaw accepts Arsenal's bid for Krystian Bielik

Arsenal have had a bid accepted by Legia Warsaw for midfielder Krystian Bielik.

The Gunners have been chasing the 17-year-old for a number of months but a deal had stalled in recent days and German giants Hamburg have entered the race.

However, sources in Poland claim that Legia have accepted Arsenal's latest bid for Bielik after upping their price to around £3m.

The Polish youngster travelled to the club's training ground last month and recently told the Polish press that he expects a deal to be completed.
“I’ve made a decision [to join Arsenal] and I’m not going to change it,” he said.

“I am looking forward to an agreement between the heads of the clubs. I realise that the negotiations may take some time. I am, however, confident it will happen soon.”
Arsenal are also keen on Legia's Slovakian midfielder Ondrej Duda.
