Gunners new boy may not see any action this season.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has said that January signing Krystian Bielik may not get any game time at all this season, the Metro reports.
The young Polish midfielder became the club’s first signing of the January transfer window when he signed on for £2.4m from Legia Warsaw.
Many had tipped the 17-year-old to go straight into the squad when he joined, though he is yet to get on the pitch, and now Wenger has confirmed that he may have to be a little more patient before running out at a weekend.
“Krystian Bielik is building up his fitness,” said Wenger.
“The first signs we have seen are very positive.
“He’s a very strong player, he’s 17, he has a very good technical level and looks intelligent. But we’ll have to give him a little time to settle and adapt.
“I like to take players of that age mid-season because it gives them a cushion of four or five months to settle, adapt and then be ready for the following season.”
