Scottish champions Celtic are being linked with a January loan move for Arsenal defender Krystian Bielik.

The Daily Record report that the Brendan Rodgers’ men have emerged as a possible destination for the Polish defender.

Bielik’s former side Legia Warsaw are also in the running to sign the player on loan for the second half of the season.

The 20-year-old is highly thought of at Arsenal and has previously spent time on loan at Birmingham City in the Championship.

Marvin Compper has already arrived from Bundesliga outfit RB Leipzig to strengthen the Hoops’ defence in the January window.

Bielik is yet to make an appearance for the Gunners in the Premier League but has featured on a couple of occasions in the League Cup for Arsene Wenger’s men.

The defender could be the third player to join Celtic during this window after the Hoops completed a deal to sign Lewis Morgan, who returned to St Mirren on loan.
