English Championship giants Leeds United are reportedly eyeing a move for Arsenal starlet Krystian Bielik this summer.

Polish u-21 international Bielik is being targeted as a replacement for Pontus Jansson at Leeds United.

Swedish international Jansson is on his out of Leeds United after fellow English Championship club Brentford agreed on a £5.5m deal for him.

The 28-year-old is expected to join London club Brentford in the coming days and Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa is expected to reinvest the money back into the squad.

Krystian Bielik is a transfer target for the 2001 Champions League semifinalists according to The Sun as they search for a replacement for Jansson.

The Arsenal starlet is a utility player as he can play either as a centre back or in central midfield.

Bielik spent last season on loan at Charlton Athletic whom he helped to secure English Championship promotion from League One at the end of last season.

His good form continued into the summer after he played well for Poland at the recently concluded European u-21 Championship in Italy and San Marino.

He was the best player for Poland at the tournament.

Krystian Bielik has talked about the need for regular playing time at Arsenal which might be difficult.

He could achieve that regular playing time at Leeds United.
