The 18-year-old only joined Arsenal last year, but he’s been making waves at Hale End and has been tipped to make a first-team breakthrough.

According to football.london, there’s genuine belief among the academy coaches that Moller can go on to become a top Premier League striker.

The 6ft 4in ace, who has been compared to Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Nwankwo Kanu, scored three minutes into his debut against Manchester City’s Under-23s.

He was then nominated for the Premier League 2 Player of the Month award in November.

Admittedly, Moller had been experiencing a minor scoring drought, failing to find the net in five Premier League 2 games.

However, the former Malmo gem got on the scoresheet in Friday’s PL2 trip to face Southampton’s U23s, smashing a 10th-minute penalty into the top-left corner.

Kido Taylor-Hart also netted for Steve Bould’s side, but Saints struck back through a Will Ferry brace for a 2-2 final score and a share of the spoils.

Nonetheless, plenty of Arsenal fans were happy to see Moller make his mark once again:
