Arsenal's Krystian Bielik would be ideal for Celtic

Celtic should try lure the Arsenal gem to Glasgow on loan

Arsenal fans were left raving about Krystian Bielik's performance against Western Sydney Wanderers on Saturday.

The 19-year-old enhanced his reputation as a hugely-promising young player at Arsenal, but first-team chances will be limited for him under Arsene Wenger next season.

ESPN reported in May that the Poland Under-21 international might be available on loan again, after spending time with Birmingham City in the Championship last season.

With Celtic needing a centre-back, should Brendan Rodgers try to get him?

Rodgers is in the market for a defender after Dedryck Boyata was ruled out for three months, leaving him with Jozo Simunivic, Erik Sviatchenko and unproven Kristoffer Ajer.

Bielik is still relatively unproven himself, but a fantastic stint in the Championship during the second half of the 2016-17 campaign has shown that he can certainly handle himself.

The Pole, who can also play in central midfield, needs games and he'd get them at Celtic.

A season with Arsenal's Under-23s wouldn't do a lot for his ongoing development in comparison to a full year in the Scottish Premiership, playing in a successful team.

Rodgers has been linked to a couple of centre-backs - including Steven Caulker, who has off-the-field issues and signing him would be a risk - but bringing in the youngster on loan could be the latest masterstroke by a manager who specialises in them these days.
