Arsenal’s centre-forward loanees are off to a hot start, with Mika Biereth and Nikolaj Moller both scoring in friendlies this weekend.
Both moving to the Netherlands this summer, Arsenal’s Mika Biereth and Nikolaj Moller are off to the perfect start with their loan sides.
Biereth had already scored twice on his friendly debut for RKC Waalwijk last week, and he added another goal against Dutch second-division side Oss on Saturday.
After a penalty and a header on his debut, Biereth scored from open play with his feet this time around in Waalwijk’s 5-3 win.
With three goals in his first two games, Biereth is certainly making an early impression. The task now is to keep that going as the fixtures ramp up in difficulty. Eredivisie sides Nijmegen and Zwolle are up next.
Meanwhile, Moller has returned to FC Den Bosch for the new season, after a brief loan with the club earlier this year.
Arsenal only announced that move on Thursday, so Moller was only available for a 30-minute cameo in Den Bosch’s friendly on Saturday. Yet he also managed to get on the scoresheet with a confidently-taken finish.

For a striker, there’s no better way to settle into a new transfer than with a goal or two. Arsenal will hope this is just the start for the loan duo.
