Club director claims Arsenal want to sell Mika Biereth

Arsenal want to sell Mika Biereth this summer as he is in the last year of his contract, according to Sturm Graz sporting director Andreas Schicker.

The Denmark youth international spent the second half of last season on loan with Sturm in the Austrian Bundesliga, bagging nine goals and four assists in 22 appearances.

Biereth was with Motherwell in the Scottish Premiership before his move to the Austrian top-flight, ending his time there with six goals and five assists in 15 games.

However, his efforts have not earned him a place in Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta’s plans for next season, and he is expected to be sold.

“Mika is in the last year of his contract – the club wants to sell him,” Schicker told Austrian outlet Kronen Zeitung. “Now we need to find a solution with Arsenal.”

The 21-year-old joined Arsenal from Fulham as a youth player in July 2021 after notching 21 goals in 21 games for their under-18s during his final season.

Biereth has yet to make his first-team debut and is unlikely to do so. He wants to join Sturm and will fancy his chances of securing a big move in the future if he keeps impressing.

Championship club Sheffield Wednesday are also interested in signing him, but a move to the Austrian Bundesliga champions is more appealing as they are also offering European football.

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

He was named in the matchday squad four times in his debut season but has spent the last two years on loan at three different clubs.
