Arsenal to send Krystian Bielik on loan 0

Posted on December 18, 2017 by Milos Markovic

London club Arsenal are prepared to let promising defender Krystian Bielik on loan during the winter transfer window, English media have reported.

The 19-year-old joined Gunners from Legia Warsaw in 2015 for a fee around £2.5 million but has yet to make a Premier League appearance for the Arsenal first team. Bielik did, however, managed two cup appearances for the club.

The Polish centre-back who can also fill in a defensive midfielder role spent the second part of the last season on loan at Birmingham City and is once again set to be shipped out during winter with Arsene Wenger keen to aid his development by allowing him to gain regular first-team football away from the Emirates Stadium.

Birmingham sign Arsenal defensive duo 1

Championship Birmingham City have completed season-long loan deals for Arsenal full-backs Cohen Bramall and Carl Jenkinson. The pair could both make their Blues debut against Bournemouth on Tuesday night in the League Cup against Bournemouth.

Jenkinson has fallen out-of-favour in north London in recent times. The 25-year-old had spent a season and a half on-loan at West Ham before injury curtailed his time in east London.

The full-back always seemed likely to exit the club this summer. However, a move to a Premier League club seemed more likely than a move to a second-tier outfit.

Surely Nicklas Bendtner cannot stay in the Premier League? 0

I would just like to expand on a story my colleague Nemanja wrote about earlier. According to the Daily Mail, Aston Villa is in talks with former-Arsenal legend (in his own mind anyway) Nicklas Bendtner. The Danish international was once a promising young striker for the Gunners, but he never fulfilled his potential at the Emirates.


The striker is reportedly wanted by Villa and German club Eintract Frankfurt this summer, after his contract with Arsenal expired. It seems the striker is actually in-demand, which is surprising considering his lack of appearances in recent seasons.

German newspaper Hamburger Morgenpost has learned that HSV are set to turn Johan Djourou’s loan deal into permanent move. This basically means that the Swiss international will finally sever his ties with the Gunners after spending last 12 years at the club.

The Bundesliga strugglers signed the 27-year-old on a season-long loan from Arsenal in the summer with an option to buy and they are reportedly ready to activate the clause in his contract that will allow them to sign Djourou for a fee of €2.5 million.
