With Besart Berisha suspended for his post-match antics against Sydney FC's Pascal Bosschaart, Brisbane Roar have looked light upfront.
Manager Mike Mulvey was forced to deploy 20-year old youth team player Ben Halloran as a striker in the team's fixture against Perth Glory over the weekend, but the former Melbourne Victory boss believed the arrival of Nijland would see the club's attacking crisis come to an end.
"Stefan is tall, quick and has an eye for goal," Mulvey stated via a statement from the club.
"I'm confident he'll fit neatly into our style of play and hopefully inject more cutting edge to our attack."
Revealing his plans to utilize both Berisha and Nijland once the former has served his ban, Mulvey expressed his excitement at what the partnership would bring for Brisbane.
"He [Nijland] is a different kind of striker to Besart and I believe the two can become a very dangerous attacking combination," he predicted.
Nijland could make his debut for the Roar against the Central Coast Mariners on Friday.
