Legia Warsaw youngster Krystian Bielik has urged Arsenal to make another offer for his services after the Polish league champions rebuffed two offers from the Premier League giants.
A second £1.6m offer is understood to have been rejected by Legia as they attempt to prevent the Gunners signing the 17-year-old midfielder, who has made five starts this season.
But Bielik, who has already spent time at Arsenal's London Colney's training ground with manager Arsene Wenger, is keen on a move to north London and has asked his club to negotiate a deal.
"I'd like to go, try it, but on the other hand, approach it calmly," he told Legia Sport. "Nothing is signed.
"I heard that Legia has rejected Arsenal but apparently the first offer is always discarded. I look forward to what will happen.
"I'm not packed yet, but already looking around for [a] larger suitcase, because as I go, you probably will not return soon.
"I hope that Legia speak with Arsenal and I go to London, there to fight for a place in the first team and to fulfil my dreams."
Bielik has already had a taste of life with Arsenal since learning of the club's interest in November, having been told by Legia boss Henning Berg – the former Blackburn Rovers and Manchester United defender – that he would be nurtured by Wenger upon his arrival.
"From the coach directly I heard that if I head to Arsenal, he immediately takes me under his wing," he continued.
"But he also explained that even older players have problems with rapid acclimatisation and adaptation to English football when signing from abroad.
"He said clearly that I could move to the Under-21s if I want to but, at the same time, he pointed out that he believes in me. I'll be training with the first team and get a chance to play, if I adapt myself.
"I believe him, because I know that is not afraid to try with the young."
