Arsenal close to selling Biereth who believes he is a combination of Haaland & Kane

Arsenal and Austrian Bundesliga club Sturm Graz will hold talks this week over a permanent deal for Mika Biereth, according to the Evening Standard.

The Gunners forward spent the second half of the season on loan with the newly-crowned Austrian Bundesliga champions.

The 21-year-old weighed in with nine goals and four assists in 22 games across all competitions.

Sturm Graz are keen on retaining Biereth permanently, and Arsenal are expected to sell him as he has just one year left on his current contract.

The Austrian outfit are not the only club keen on the Denmark youth international, with Championship club Sheffield Wednesday interested in signing him.

Biereth recently called himself a lower-version hybrid of Erling Braut Haaland and Harry Kane and admitted he dreams of scoring regularly for Arsenal.

However, that is unlikely to happen as he has yet to make his first-team debut and will likely be sold this summer.

The London-born striker bagged 21 goals in 21 games for Fulham Under-18s during his final season before joining Arsenal in July 2021. He was named in the matchday squad four times that season.

He moved to Eredivisie club RKC Waalwijk on loan for the 2022-23 campaign, scoring twice in 13 games.

Biereth then spent the first half of this season with Scottish Premiership outfit Motherwell, where he notched six goals in 14 games.

Sturm Graz pipped Wednesday to his services in January and could successfully secure him permanently if talks with the Gunners go well.
