ARSENAL have completed the signing of teenage Legia Warsaw midfielder Krystian Bielik for an undisclosed fee, believed to be in the region of £2.4m.

The 17-year-old Poland youth international, who can play as a holding midfielder or centre-half, made just six first-team appearances for Legia after joining from rivals Lech Poznan in July.

The Gunners beat off interest from a number of clubs, including Bundesliga side Hamburg, for Bielik’s signature, a player expected to swiftly progress to working with Arsenal’s senior squad. Bielik said: “I’ve decided to move to Arsenal and although I cannot be sure of what’s to come in the future, I’m going to London to fulfil my dreams.”
