The transfer deadline saw a lot of players moving to new teams but Arsenal opted to include future pieces of the club. The Gunners are expected to finalize a deal for Nikolaj Moller soon once the 18-year-old teenager passes his medical.

Moller failed to catch a break with Malmo but it appears Arsenal is ready to give him a chance. He has been compared to Zlatan Ibrahimovic, someone who made waves as a youngster for his physical prowess and technical quality. He is expected to first join Steve Bould’s Under-23 squad.

According to Aftonbladet, Moller was offered a $545,000 a week salary that is good for four years. The deal includes an option for an additional year if the 18-year-old performs well.

As of this writing, Moller is undergoing a medical at London Colney. One cleared, the deal is expected to be made official according to Goal.

Moller will be the latest youngster added to the club. Before this, Arsenal had already secured the services of George Lewis, Tim Akinoa and Jonathan Dinzeyi. But there is reason to believe that Moller could be the next big player that the Gunners could have in the years to come.

Arsenal has been looking for a tall striker to take the place of Olivier Giroud. The 34-year-old left in 2018 and is currently with Chelsea FC. Aside from the Swedish football player, another name that could rise soon is Omar Rekik. He was taken in via a separate deal with Hertha Berlin. Rekik had a previous stint with Manchester City that cost Arsenal roughly $1.4 million.

As far as the senior squad, Arsenal is still trying to pull off last-minute deals to improve. The Gunners have not yet given up the chase for Thomas Partey and the word going around is that Arsenal may finally give in to the asking fee of Atletico Madrid.

Arsenal has been trying to negotiate the transfer price but Atletico has stood firm. Something could be made official soon with Arteta keeping his fingers crossed.

“What I can guarantee is that we are doing our maximum for that to happen, whether we are going to achieve it or not, I don’t know,” Arteta said.
