Arsenal signs Poland defender Kiwior from Spezia

LONDON (AP) — Arsenal has strengthened its defensive resources for its run at the Premier League title by signing Poland center back Jakub Kiwior from Italian team Spezia. The Premier League leaders didn’t disclose the fee for Kiwior. British media reported he cost 21 million pounds ($26 million). The 22-year-old Kiwior played for Poland at the World Cup last year and was at Arsenal’s stadium on Sunday to watch his new team beat Manchester United to regain its five-point lead. Kiwior moved to Serie A from MSK Zilina in August 2021. He made 43 appearances for Spezia.
