Wenger confirms that the club are interested in young midfielder Krystian Bielik, but denies interest in Loic Perrin.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been surprisingly candid when talking about two players heavily linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium in recent weeks, report Goal, with the Frenchman confirming his interest in teenage Legia Warsaw midfielder Krystian Bielik.
The 17 year-old Pole has been in and around the first team of Henning Berg’s Ekstraklasa champions already and has attracted the attentions of big clubs across Europe, but Wenger confirmed his side’s desire to bring Bielik to the Premier League:
“He is a young boy that we follow, yes. You see, I gave you some information! We are not very close at the moment [to an agreement].”
Wenger also spoke about reported Arsenal interest in another player, and it seems as though the club’s interest in St. Etienne captain Loic Perrin has gone cold, with Wenger denying any interest:
“No, we are not on the [Perrin] case.”
