Arsenal’s chase for Legia Warsaw wonderkid Krystian Bielik is set to be decided over the Christmas period, with the youngster set to either move to north London or stay with his current club.
A £1.6 million move has been discussed with the player and his club, with talks being held in the capital last week with the player.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is particularly keen to push through a transfer during the winter transfer window, as reported by the London Evening Standard.
A potential spanner in the works could be the amount of first team football on offer.
Bielik has been given the guarantee of regular action at first team level by Legia manager Henning Berg if he chooses to remain with the Polish side.
The prodigious young talent has made six appearances for Legia in his career, and can play at both defensive midfield and at centre back.
He has now been given time to discuss the move with his family.
