Unai Emery has come in for major criticism from some of the club’s fans after reports in Poland suggested the Spaniard has no intention of putting defender Krystian Bielik in his plans for the forthcoming season.
Bielik had a fine 2018/19 campaign, helping Charlton Athletic towards promotion while on loan at The Valley, and continued his fine form for Poland Under-21s at the European Championships last month, where he scored twice in the group stage.
However, chances of the 21-year-old breaking into the Arsenal first team any time soon look bleak as Przeglad Sportowy report that the youngster has received offers from elsewhere – chiefly from AC Milan.
Fans are not happy at the apparent refusal to grant Bielik a shot at a senior opportunity – and Emery has been made the target of these supporters’ wrath as a result.
Some highlighted the dangers of allowing a promising defender to leave despite Arsenal’s efforts to recruit in that area over the summer, while others displayed their lack of faith in the manager as the centre-back reportedly nears the exit door with just 33 minutes of Arsenal football under his belt:
Disaster class if true

Loving the fact that Emery, a short term “fix” (one we should get rid off ASAP), is having such an impact in our long term decision making.

Such a shame considering we (1) have limited funds; (2) need a CB; and (3) want to get young.
Bielik checks all the boxes yet we’re about to bottle it
