Arsenal fans on Twitter have been discussing their latest arrival today, as the club officially announced the signing of 17-year-old Krystian Bielik from Legia Warsaw for an undisclosed fee. Dubbed as the ‘new Patrick Vieiera’, there’s a lot of optimism in the air.
The majority of tweets have been welcoming the young Polish midfielder to North London, whilst a number of people have pushed on for more deals to be completed. Naturally, there was the standard jokes about Arsenal signing a teenager- as well as a number of fans touting him to be the next Nemanja Matic.
That hasn’t gone down well with Chelsea fans, but nothing ever does, and there’s a mixed atmosphere in the air about the signing- with a lot of people waiting to give their verdict on the newest man at the Emirates.
Imagine how the mood would have been if we’d lost to City and then announced the Bielik signing 😀

Bielik looks straight out of Superbad but I’ll be damned if he’s not the next Matic

Imagine being in Bielik’s shoes, 17 and he just signed for the mighty Arsenal.

Get ready to see Arsenal fans make Matic/Bielik comparisons. Because they have nothing better to do.

Don’t start touting young Krystian Bielik as ‘the new Patrick Vieira’ before he’s kicked a bloody ball in an Arsenal shirt for christ sake!

I’m guessing Arsenal fans have seen loads of that Bielik.

The possibility of Bielik becoming a flop is greater than him becoming a star player for Arsenal. Hopefully he will become the latter.
