Some Arsenal supporters have taken to Twitter to comment on Krystian Bielik’s move to Derby County.

Derby County’s official website announced the signing of Bielik after plenty of speculation. The Poland U21 international has penned a five-year deal with the Rams.

The fee for the deal has been reported to be an initial £7.5 million upfront, though that could rise to £10 million. It’s a lot of money for the Rams, but in a key position they needed to strengthen.

Some Arsenal fans believe Derby have signed a top talent. And here are some of the best quotes from Twitter.

 

What will Krystian Bielik bring to Derby?

Bielik is predominantly a holding midfielder who is also capable of playing at centre-back. He spent last season out on loan at Charlton Athletic, helping the Addicks to promotion from League One.

It seems like a lot of money for a player with zero Championship experience. However, Derby have signed a player with huge potential and importantly a player with sell-on value.

The East Midlands club failed in their bid to secure promotion by buying ‘proven’ Championship players. Bradley Johnson and Jacob Butterfield both arrived for record deals back in 2015. This summer, they’ve joined Championship rivals for next-to-nothing.

Bielik should slot in as Derby’s holding midfielder for the next few years. Manager Phillip Cocu has an excellent record when coaching younger players, so this feels like a calculated gamble worth taking.
