Opinion: 24-goal/assist Arsenal loanee should be back on Sheffield Wednesday’s radar this summer

Sheffield Wednesday were interested in Arsenal youngster Mika Biereth in the January window, but a move failed to materialise for the Owls.

Sheffield Wednesday eyed the Danish striker as a potential recruit in January amid his impressive form north of the border while on loan with Motherwell.

Biereth notched six goals and five assists in 15 games for the Scottish Premiership side and when Arsenal recalled him amid the Owls’ interest, hopes of a deal were raised. However, he was to head to Austria instead, signing for Sturm Graz until the end of the season.

The 21-year-old has continued his impressive goalscoring there too. Biereth has nine goals and four assists in 21 games for the club, catching the eye in both the Austrian Bundesliga and UEFA Conference League.

He’ll be back at Arsenal when the summer comes around though, and he should be back on the radar of Sheffield Wednesday.

A fantastic season for Biereth

Former Fulham prospect Biereth had been prolific in youth football before stepping up to the senior game.

The London-born ace has 15 goals and nine assists to his name across all competitions. He’s managed the step from Scottish to Austrian football with ease and you have to think more senior football awaits him next season.

A Championship move could be ideal for Biereth as he takes his game to the next level and at Sheffield Wednesday with a top coach like Danny Rohl, he could really make a name for himself.

Perhaps another season in a top-flight league awaits after this season’s success, but the Championship is as competitive as second-tier football gets, and it could be the ideal way for the Arsenal prospect to develop and learn in the English game.

The striker situation at Hillsborough

it seems inevitable that at least one striker will be signed by Sheffield Wednesday this summer.

There is a desire to keep influential loan man Ike Ugbo but even if he ends up penning a permanent deal, further additions will be needed.

Lee Gregory is set to depart while Callum Paterson is also out of contract. Michael Smith has a year left on his deal and Ashley Fletcher’s loan will be coming to a close. Bailey Cadamarteri will be remaining on the books.

A loan swoop for former target Biereth could be ideal for the Owls as they look to strengthen at the top of the pitch.
