Championship club joins the race to sign Arsenal striker

Aston Villa are the latest club to be linked with a move for Arsenal striker, Chuba Akpom, as reported by the Birmingham Mail

Aston Villa boss, Steve Bruce signed Akpom for Hull City on loan last season and although the youngster was dropped from the starting eleven due to disciplinary reasons, he did chip in with seven goals for the club and helped guide them to Premier League promotion. 

Wenger did have high hopes for the youngster this season and had begun to use him in Cup game until Akpom suffered a back injury. Although he has returned to training and has even featured for the under-23 team, Akpom’s progress has been hampered. Arsenal, therefore, are looking to send him out on loan to gain some experience and game time for the rest of the season.
