Moller is 18 and moved to the club on deadline day from Malmo in Sweden.

He will join the team’s academy in the coming days, and eventually the first team.

Asterhed said to 101 Great Goals: “I would say Nikolaj would fit really good into a 3-4-3 system as a classical number 9. He can also play as one of two strikers in a 4-4-2 system. He can play as the target man and as the one who runs in behind. Comparing to former Arsenal players, I would say maybe Kanu is the closest one.”

“On the pitch, Niko is a really technical player. He can flick in behind, he can combine and he has a really good one touch, he also has the dribbling abilities but more and more the last year he has been less and less dribbling. He is a huge player. 194cm, 90kg and for this size, he is really mobile.”
