Report: 21-year-old set to quit Arsenal this summer, is Emery foolish to let him leave?

Emerging Arsenal talent Krystian Bielik has told the club that he wants to quit this summer, according to The Sun.

The defender was on loan at Charlton Athletic last season, helping the club towards promotion to the Championship.

Bielik understands that his prospects of first-team football are looking bleak at the Emirates Stadium, however, and has made the decision to move on.

The uncompromising Polish enforcer has recently starred at the Under-21 European Championships. His nation eventually fell to defeat against Spain and he had hoped to force his way into Unai Emery’s plans.

That doesn’t look like happening, however, with teams from England, Italy, Germany, Holland and Belgium reportedly placing offers on the table.

TBR Verdict

The Gunners could be missing a trick here with Bielik.

At 21 he can play centre-back or in defensive midfield and Arsenal should be willing to hand him an opportunity.

Emery could certainly do a lot worse.

Arsenal were nothing short of abysmal defensively during certain parts of last season and Bielik should incredible strength and determination at Charlton.

Pre-season would have been the perfect chance to take a look at the defender with a view to giving him a run out next season.

As of yet, the Gunners haven’t signed a defender and if Emery fails to get one over the line the repercussions for next season could be catastrophic.

Bielik was thoroughly deserving of a shot and Arsenal’s loss will be another club’s gain.
