Chuba Akpom set for January exit 0

Posted on November 29, 2016 by Milos Markovic

Arsenal striker Chuba Akpom could be set for a January move away from the North London club, according to reports.

The 21-year-old is close to returning to action following a back injury he suffered back in September, but the Mirror reports that Arsene Wenger is contemplating an option to send his striker out on loan in order to help him gain valuable first-team experience.

Akpom has made only one senior appearance for the Gunners this term, taking part in Arsenal’s 4-0 League Cup win over Nottingham Forest and is likely to find it hard to break into the first-team fold.

Arsenal travel to Wales to face Cardiff City on the weekend, with the latter having just earned a deserved draw against last season’s title winners Manchester United. Manager Arsene Wenger knows it will be a difficult task away from home, and even more so considering their recent run of form – nevertheless Arsenal are 8/13 to beat the Bluebirds.

City have lost just once in their last four league outings – 2-0 away to Aston Villa. They drew 0-0 with league strugglers Norwich City, while earning a famous South Wales derby victory against fierce rivals Swansea. And most recently, drawing 2-2 with Manchester United.
