Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern that have held a close eye on their loanees during the season are celebrating one piece of news today, as one performing player is set to be given the ultimate reward.
Goal quote Chuba Akpom’s representative as stating the England U21 striker has been assured he will get his chance in the first-team at Arsenal next season, after impressing thoroughly during a spell with promotion chasing Championship outfit Hull City this term.
The young striker, who has made 35 appearances this season, will be assessed during the pre-season, as he was last summer, but it’s likely that Akpom will be given his chance amongst the first-team, according to his representative Emeka Obasi:
“Akpom is doing very well at Hull City and Arsenal have been looking at his progress with the club. I am certain that they will recall him at the end of the season, and if he is able to have another wonderful pre-season, just like he had last season, you never can know the prospects ahead of him,”
“He is calm about everything and he is going about his quest to become a notable Arsenal star with utmost humility. He has continued to work harder to ensure that he realises his dream of playing more regularly for the club.”
Currently fourth in the table, Akpom will be crucial in the coming weeks as Hull look to assure themselves of a spot in the automatic promotion places, or indeed succeed with their aim through the play-offs.
