Arsenal to sign Fulham youngster Mika Biereth

Arsenal have reached an agreement with Fulham to add highly-rated youngster Mika Biereth to their academy.  The 18-year-old had been offered the option of signing a professional contract at Craven Cottage, but turned it down in favour of joining the Gunners.

The Athletic report that Biereth helped Fulham’s Under-18 side reach the Premier League National Final, despite losing to Manchester City.

Biereth netted a record 21 goals in 21 games in the Under-18s Premier League South, providing 13 assists on the way to being crowned the leagues top scorer.
