According to Eurosport Poland, Legia Warsaw have rejected Arsenal opening offer for 16-year-old Krystian Bielik after interest from AS Roma, Hamburg and Stuttgart in the highly rated midfielder.

Everyone assumed that it was a done deal for Arsenal after Bielik visited London and met with manager Arsene Wenger, but apparently not as Warsaw try to get more money for the youngster who despite being only 16 is already 6ft 2in and looks physically strong enough to jump straight into the Gunners first team.

Eurosport suggests it might now take influence of Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczęsny to convince Bielik that his future lies at the Emirates.
