Arsenal affirm signing of Fulham striker Mika Biereth
Arsenal have now officially announced the signing of talented center forward Mika Biereth from Fulham, the 18-year-old has signed his first professional contract with the Gunners.
Confirmation of the deal comes six days after the Athletic reported the 18-year-old turned down Fulham’s offer of a professional contract in favor of a move to the Gunners.
Biereth was phenomenal for the Cottagers last season and fired them with 21 goals and 13 assists from 21 appearances to triumph in the U18 Premier League South.
Arsenal point out that the youngster’s record has not been matched by any player in the Northern or Southern leagues, so the Gunners really excelled in the U18.
