Who is imminent Arsenal signing Jakub Kiwior & why are they bringing him in?

Mikel Arteta's Arsenal side are sitting pretty at the top of the Premier League table, five points clear of holders Manchester City with a game in hand. The starting eleven has not let the manager down all season, having won 15 of their 18 matches and conceded just 14 goals.

Despite their success in 2022-23, though, Arsenal have thus far struggled to secure any new signings in the January window. They lost out to Ukrainian starlet and reported long-time Gooner Mykhailo Mydryk to rivals Chelsea, who are sitting comfortably mid-table in comparison.

That may be all be about to change though, with the club closing in on a £20m ($25m) deal for 22-year-old Spezia defender Jakub Kiwior. But with William Saliba and Gabriel forming a formidable partnership already this term, why do Arsenal need to bring him in?
