Arsenal fans react as Gunners reportedly set to sign Mika Biereth

Arsenal are reportedly set to complete the signing of Fulham teenager Mika Biereth, after a sensational 20-21 campaign caught the eye. The London-born attacker starred for The Cottagers last season, at Under-18 level. Now, Arsenal have struck a deal to sign 18-year-old Biereth first.

Biereth stole the show in the southern division of the Under-18 Premier League. Playing 21 of Fulham’s 24 league games, Biereth clocked up a whopping 21 goals and 13 assists. That form guided Fulham to the top of the table and a title clash against north champions Manchester City.

They lost 3-1, but Biereth’s impression is long lasting. Now, The Athletic claimvia Football Londonthat Arsenal will sign Biereth. He rejected professional terms with Fulham and he is set to become the North London side’s third signing of the summer after Nuno Tavares and Albert Lokonga.
