Arsenal confirm signing of teenage Swedish striker

51

Arsenal have confirmed the capture of young striker Nikolaj Moller.

The 18 year old joins from Malmo for a fee believed to be around £500,000.

Here’s what we know about him:

– He’s quite tall at 1.94m (6’3)

– He joined Malmo from Bologna last year and some people there compared him to Zlatan Ibrahimovic. We don’t know if that’s because he’s very good, a tall Swede, or a massive twat.

– He has yet to make his senior debut.

– He will be part of the U23 squad.

And that’s about it for now.

Welcome to Arsenal, Nikolaj.

thankyou22

Boyle bros 😀

Chris

If this is a Brooklyn Nine Nine reference it is absolutely top drawer.

joshi

Brooklyn 99 joke?

Daveo

2nd point is fucking brilliant! Let’s hope its the former.

PeteyB

Id be happy enough with a blend of all 3. For the most part Zlatan channeled his twattishness positively, and I’ve no doubt I’d’ve enjoyed Zlatan in an Arsenal shirt

Daveo

Call me ol’ fashioned; I’d still prefer he not be a twat.

C.B.

Better like Zlatan than Nick Bendtner.

Toure Motors

Taxi men all over the uk would breathe a sigh of relief…

Gunnersaurus

All hail lord Bendtner…?

thankyou22

How dare you take the Lord’s name in vain?

OdalGooner

Bendter was never a swede. He was, and remains, a dane. Because that’s how that works.

Clive Bullen

Never said he was. He was a striker that wasted his talent though (I was there in the crowd when he scored in 6 seconds of coming on v Sp*rs, if only he could have kept doing that).

Biggles

If only, but instead he went “full on Prat”. Shame, but that particular nightmare is long ago and we can sleep easier now.

Crash Fistfight

Never go full on Prat

“We don’t know if that’s because he’s very good, a tall Swede, or a massive twat.”

I nearly spat my coffee out laughing at that comment, especially the last bit!!!

Bob Jane

How do you pronounce his name? Is it Nikolaj?

Twatsloch

Nicholai.

Giuseppe Hovno

No I believe it is pronounced Nikolaj

Don Cazorleone

No, Nikolaj

gooner

Niklas….

….B

Biggles

Some say Nikolaj, others say Nicholai. Let’s call the whole thing off.

Timorous Me

This entire discussion was basically a running joke throughout season four of Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

Dave

Where’s Boyle when we need him

John

Nickel eye (I think)

Eddie Ritchie

It’s pronounced Thwaite

StockholmGooner

As a swede a
I can weigh in here, it’s not Swedish but we pronounce it Nikpklläårpiöe

Cygans Parting

Marvelous!!! ??
Right, what’s his song going to be???….
Anybody???…..

Ray's ice cream Parlour

We’ll just call him Dave….

Pat Fried Rice with Egg

Dave? Dave’s not here man….

Twatsloch

Welcome to the club, Nicholai! Here’s to many successful season’s with us!

Dark Hei

He is going to wear the 52 shirt isn’t he.

Qwaliteee

Another poor unfortunate soul who has had my missus and my daughters swooning and waxing lyrical.

Again, if he sticks the ball in the net, I don’t care what he looks like.

Welcome to The Arsenal son.

gooner

Can’t wait for his debut goal. A thumping header from a corner kick seconds after coming on against Sp*rs

Qwaliteee

A corner that has resulted from Son putting it out before Partey puts him into Row Z, upper tier.

Peter Echerenwa

At this age he can break into main team if too good

Artetas Assistant

That’s what I’m hoping man ?

Haaland looks a big stallion motherf#ker (like a Gabriel Malghaes in Centre forward) and if this guy can get that kinda muscle mass or power and performance and requires mental, fuck it

Granit(e) hard!

Well, I just like this deal dor some reason, call it instincts, intuition, whatever. At 6ft 3, 18 years old, but good enough to attract international attention from as big a club as Arsenal, all at £500k?, nothing much can go wrong in my humble opinion. The low price tag suggests non of the dodgy stuff went on here. Also, our academy is one of the best in the world right now, given the depth of talents its currently churning out, so even if this deal dosent even work out, and he dosent break into the first team as hoped,… Read more »

I would take him being a twat over rubbing himself on a taxi.

Bryan!

A gigantic northern European striker, eh? Probably as good as Erling Haaland.

Artetas Assistant

You in my head boy????

Biggles

Never heard of him (like at least 99.9% of my fellow Gooners). A possible second Ibrahimovic for £500k? Maybe, maybe not, maybe somewhere in between. We’ll just have to wait and see.

adriano

he could still be growing too

Granit(e) hard!

Yeah, most likely he is still growing, seeing he is only just 18, dont lets forget that, so we might end up with a 6ft 5/6 beast of a striker..Amen to that!

Twatsloch

BFS!

Pavlovic

Andreas Georgson worked in the Malmo youth academy for 12 years. Nikolaj played there for several years and Andreas knows him well.

Twatsloch

Can I just stray from the subject for a moment and express my commiserations over the God given guitar talent that was Eddie Van Halen who left us today?

Dave

Amazing musician, will be missed. Lot of greats leaving us lately, still miss Gary Moore

Lokosoft

Welcome to Arsenal and hope to see you in the first team after few years
