Angha, 19, has made two appearances for Arsenal's first team, making his debut in September's 6-1 Capital One Cup win over Coventry before featuring the in 2-1 Champions League loss against Olympiakos in December.

"It was about finding a club where I can constantly win minutes in the first team and develop further," Angha told Swiss news portal 20min.ch. "I am looking forward to the Bundesliga."

The Swiss added on Nurnberg's website: "I had a good time in London and thank Arsenal for everything. Now I am looking forward to the challenge in Nurnberg."
