21-year-old defender determined to leave Arsenal this summer
Young Polish defender Krystian Bielik is determined to pursue a fresh challenge away from Arsenal unless manager Unai Emery assures him of gametime with the first-team.
The 21-year-old has been with the Gunners since the summer of 2014 and in the past five seasons, he has managed just two appearances for the club across all competitions.
As such, Bielik has already voiced the ambition of securing a fresh move away from the Emirates Stadium and sources in Poland indicate that may end up being the case.
Bielik spent time on loan with Charlton Athletic during the course of the previous campaign and his progress is said to have impressed several Championship sides.
The Pole has recently been left out of the squad for the pre-season tour of the United States and the next few days will give a clear indication whether the Gunners will accept to his demands for a permanent exit, given he is not in the plans of Emery.
