One for the future

Biereth is only 18, and it is clear that the forward is one for the future.

The youngster scored 21 goals in 21 games for Fulham last season, helping the London club win the U-18 Premier League south.

Biereth is likely to go into the Arsenal youth team next season and will then attempt to move up the ranks.

Arsenal have a good attacking unit now, but things always change, and the North London outfit will also want to freshen up their squad from time to time.

If Biereth continues to develop in the Arsenal academy, then he could establish himself in the senior side in the coming years.
