Arsenal youngster Krystian Bielik says he will do everything possible to make an impact in the first team this season.
Wenger recently confirmed the youngster would be part of his first team plans this season and Bielik is hoping to make the most out of the opportunity.
The 18 year old featured as an holding midfielder for the club’s junior team but Wenger has revealed he would now be deployed as a centre back and Bielik has promised to develop into a world class defender for the club.
“Arsene came to me and said ‘I see you as central defender, so I want you to start learning to play there’,” Bielik said. “So I started working on that right away.”
“I came to Arsenal as a central midfielder, so it took some time to get comfortable in a new position, but now I feel alright. I know what my new responsibilities are, try to learn as much as possible and be ready to compete whenever I’m asked to.
“I just want to play for Arsenal, it doesn’t matter where that would be – defensive midfielder, right-back. If Arsene wants me to be the centre-back, I will do everything I can to make him happy.”
Bielik was part of the squad that travelled to the United States of America for the club’s pre-season and was impressive during the tour. We will be hoping he continues his impressive form when the league begins in a fortnight.
