Leeds reportedly hold talks with PL club for impressive 19-year-old

Goal claim that the Whites have held talks with the 19-year-old’s representatives about a potential loan move to Elland Road.

It is understood that Championship rivals Nottingham Forest have also held talks for the centre-back, who has the versatility to play as a defensive midfielder.

Arsenal have recommended a loan move for Bielik this season to aid his development, with Norwich and German club Eintracht Frankfurt showing interest earlier in the transfer window.

The Poland Under-19 international impressed last season on loan at Birmingham and is recognised for his commanding physical presence at the back and wide range of passing.

Leeds could do with one more centre-back in their squad to give it a great balance and compete alongside Pontus Jansson, Liam Cooper and Matthew Pennington.

Bielik is an upcoming talent that is highly rated at Arsenal and just needs more first-team experience to develop away from the Emirates Stadium.

The centre-back would be a great fit at Elland Road and his technical ability in possession would help him settle quickly.

He would be able to play out from the back for Thomas Christiansen’s side and be another player that strengthens the squad.
