Jakub Kiwior spotted at airport ahead of impending Gunners move

Arsenal target Jakub Kiwior has been spotted at an airport as he closes in on a move to the Emirates Stadium.

Since then, football.london have reported that the two clubs are now in ‘advanced’ talks over a move.

A left-footed centre-back, Kiwior is comfortable on the ball and tough in the tackle, making him an ideal fit for the Gunners style. He will provide competition for Gabriel Magalhaes, who has started every Premier League game this season.

Upon finalising a move, the Polish international, who starred for his nation at the World Cup, will become Arsenal‘s second signing of the January transfer window.

Leandro Trossard made the move from Brighton to north London on Friday, signing a long-term contract.

And Kiwior has now been spotted embarking on a plane from Italy as a move to Arsenal draws nearer.

The Polish centre-back can be seen carrying a suitcase and luggage. Should the deal be completed in time, he could be eligible to face Manchester City in an FA Cup fourth round tie on January 27.

Before then, the Gunners are in action against Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday. Kiwior will not be eligible for that game, even if he completes his signing before kick-off, because registrations must be confirmed by the Premier League in the working day prior to a team’s next fixture (in this case, Friday).

Trossard, however, may be able to feature against United, with Arsenal stating that they were hopeful that he would be cleared to play having completed all official documents required by the Premier League.
