Video: See why this youngster has been called up to the Arsenal first-team

Nikolaj Moller has been called up to train with the first-team this week after a number of impressive displays for the youth sides.

The 18 year-old joined the club last month from Molde, and is already making his mark in his new surroundings.

Moller has clocked up three goals and assist in his opening four matches, but his link-up player, composure and physical presence is what is making him stand out from the crowd.

The young Swede stands at 6ft 4″ tall, but doesn’t lack any of the technical ability that you would usually associate with a man of his stature.

Despite only a short time with the club’s under-23 side, the manager is clearly already impressed with his progress, and while he was called up to train with the first-team squad this week, it remains to be seen whether Arteta will be considering him as an option to play for the first-team in the near future.

Could Moller be the next youngster to make the jump from the youth sides?

    I like his stature, he is a different breed to all our CF options. He can be compared to Morata, Giroud and his country man Ibrahimovic. Here is hoping he turns out to be half as good as Ibra.

      Remember Yaya Sanogo. He needs support coming from midfield.
      Youngsters stand a good chance when the team is having a good run otherwise team selection will be based on survival.

    I watched him against Gillingham and he has got a good first touch for a big man, I think he can make an impact if given a chance!

    Let’s hope MA does not improve him like he improved our first team offense.

      If you think Arteta has not improved most of our players then maybe we are watching a different arsenal, that the team now works hard for each other on its own it’s an improvement.

        Excuse me, working hard and always pressing does not necessarily translate to good , technical, match winning creative football. You will say our players are working really hard but our game has been boring, sideways and results not good so far.

    We need to stand firm behind our manager, otherwise player power will ruin this team.

    1. Sue says:

    2. Jwise says:

    Damn these youngsters playing more creative football then the first team, Jury remains out on Artits, but he does deserve at least 2 – 3 seasons. Before we find a new manager
