Leeds United fans react to reports that the Arsenal gem is available.

Leeds United fans on Twitter want Victor Orta to sign want-away Arsenal prospect Krystian Bielik this summer.

The Elland Road club will need a new centre-back after Pontus Jansson joined Brentford earlier this month.

Leeds have already signed Ben White on a season-long loan, but that was confirmed before Jansson's departure and therefore United are still a bit light on centre-half options.

According to Przeglad Sportowy  Arsenal boss Unai Emery has no plans on using the Poland Under-21 international - who is yet to make a Premier League appearance despite joining in 2015 - this season.

 

Bielik, who turns 22 in January, has been linked with a move to the West Yorkshire club before and some fans want their Director of Football to swoop.

It's very likely that Marcelo Bielsa will like the Gunners ace, who can play defensive midfield ­­­and in central defence.

The Leeds' Argentine coach likes his players to be able to operate in different positions and Bielik is definitely versatile in that regard.

It's possible that the Whites coach could renew an interest - especially given that he's most likely going to a Championship club [The Sun] - but time will tell if Orta goes back in for him.
