Arsenal close to signing Swedish striker on four-year deal

Every Arsenal fan is waiting for news on Thomas Partey, but it seems that Arsenal have been lining up other deadline day signings.

Goal is reporting that the Gunners are set to sign the Swedish striker Nikolaj Duus Moller from Malmo for a fee of around £450,000. The youngster is an extremely highly-rated Sweden Under-19 international and Goal are saying that the medical was done today in London and the deal should be finalised by the time the deadline arrives.

The news was broken by Goal, who told us Moller was having a medical afew hours ago, and then announced on Twitter by Charlie Watts….

Moller spent 18 months in Italy where he scored three goals in 19 appearances for Bologna’s Under-17 side and is (hopefully I think, but you never know!) proclaimed as the new Ibrahamovich (I’m sure that is just because he is Swedish!), but I am sure he will go straight into the U23s and hopefully prove his ability before joining Arteta’s senior side…

Although Thomas Partey is the player we all want to see right now, it is good that Arsenal are investing in top young talents which could turn into future Arsenal stars, like Bellerin, Martinelli and many others have done in the recent past…

    See confirmation of two deals on the Kolasinac article just in via Twitter and the reaction by Simeone to the news that we have triggered Partey’s release clause.

    Arsenal have finally gotten the type of player we didn’t have, which is a towering target man. We need a tall striker like him, because we can’t always score from open play

    Another type of player Arsenal don’t have is a skillful winger who’s excellent in duels and one-on-one situations. Pepe and Willian are good wingers, but none of them can get past the opponents consistently

      Have you seen Pepe play?
      Just look at the youtube vids he can go past one player for fun, its just the second or third that cause him issues. He forces teams to double and triple time him. All he has to do is learn to cross the ball after drawing the opposition to him.

      1. gotanidea says:

        Yes, we’ve been watching him for more than one season already

        YouTube highlights just show the best moments of the players. Xhaka and Torreira looked magical on YouTube, before they came to London

          gotanidea, if Pepe can replicate his goal against Sheffield United all will be right. Cut the young player some slack, his first season was quite acceptable.

          1. gotanidea says:

            That’s why I said he’s a good winger, but he needs to improve a lot

        2. ozziegunner says:

          Arsenal sign Nicholas Moller for £450,000 happy to play in under 23’s and home grown Falorin Balogun has itchy feet, won’t sign an extended contract and wants to leave.
          If Arsenal get £10-15 million they are asking for Balogun, this is good business. Sell on and buy back clauses mandatory, please!

    Great another of Arsenal’s stupid deadline day signing

    Am hearing rumors of buendia
    How true is that?

    1. John Ibrahim says:

      this is not fifa21

      do you expect players to be signed instantly and appear within 24hrs?

    The problem is at the defence.. we have to buy an international CB to compete at the big game…
    We always loose to big team like liverpool because of the defence..
    we have a lot of talented midfield player.. but lack of big defence those who can scared the opponent striker to score the goal when we face a big team..
    Always a silly mistake by the backfour

    1. ozziegunner says:

      John, the defense is on the improve in the short and long term with CB’s Gabriel, Saliba, Mari when he returns from injury, Mavropanos on loan, Holding, Luis and even an improved Mustafi. Tierney at LB is young, a full Scottish international and excellent in his position, Soares is an experienced fullback and although I have doubts about Bellerin, he is improving since returning from injury. This area could be strengthen by buying Max Aarons, currently with Norwich City in the Championship (open until 31 October 2020).
      Thomas Partey in front will also reduce the pressure on the back four.

      1. ozziegunner says:

        On statistics the best DM in the Championship is Matt Grimes, 25 and 1.78m tall captain of Swansea City. His transfer value is only €5 million from Transfermarkt.
