Polish outfits Legia Warsaw have reportedly rejected a second bid from Arsenal for their teenage midfielder Krystian Bielik.

The 17-year-old, who is being dubbed as the "New Patrick Vieira", has been on the radar of a number of clubs this season following his impressive performance in the Polish League.

Arsenal are believed to be keen on beating other sides to the signature of Bielik, but Legia, who only signed the player on a three year deal last summer, are reportedly not willing to listen to offers below £2.3 million.

The Gunners tried to tempt Legia Warsaw with an initial offer of £1.6million, but the Polish side refused to let the teenager go at that price.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger then returned with a improved offer for Bielik, but according to Sky Sports, that too was turned down by the Polish side.

Wenger may be tempted to give in to the Polish side's demand as Bielik is certain to be a star in the future, having already managed to break into the Legia Warsaw's senior side following some excellent performances in the youth levels.

However the Gunners, who managed to convince Legia Warsaw to part with their 16-year-old goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny from the Polish club in 2006, may have a slight advantage as Bielik has confirmed that he is interested in moving to London.

"I hope that the two clubs come together and I go to London to fulfil my dreams. He [Wenger] knows that I have the skills, am determined to win and he wants to sign me as soon as possible to start working with me.''

Meanwhile, Arsenal youngster Hector Bellerin feels that it is very important to analyse other players playing in the same position in order to improve.

The 19-year-old right-back, who has got a fair share of first team football this season owing to the injuries of other defenders, has been pretty impressive so far, having played especially well during Arsenal's 4-1 win over Newcastle towards the end of 2014.

And the young Spaniard says that he is always looking to learn from players competing with him for the same position.

"You know there are always players in front of and behind you, who are going to try to get your spot," he told Arsenal Player. "The only thing you can do is learn from them.

"You know that if they are in front of you, it's because they are better than you, so that means that they are something that you're not doing right."

"When Bacary was here, I used to look at his games and analyse him, because I think he was one of the best players we used to have on the pitch. When Jenko or Calum play, it's about analysing the things they do right and wrong."
