Arsenal to loan out Nigerian forward

English Premier League side Arsenal are set to loan out Chuba Akpom for the remainder of the 2017/18 season.

The English born striker has not featured for the Gunners in the first half of the season, and reports have emerged that the London based side are willing to let Chuba go before the transfer deadline on Wednesday, January 31.

Goal’s Arsenal correspondent Chris Wheatley has suggested that Arsenal are in talks with a Belgium based side for the services of Akpom.

Belgian side @stvv want Chuba Akpom on loan until the end of the season. The transfer would be Akpom’s sixth loan deal in five years.

Akpom has fallen behind Alexander LacazetteOlivier Giroud, and youngster Eddie Nketiahin the pecking order, and with the club reportedly in talks for Gabonese goal poacher Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Chuba will find it difficult to get game time.

According to reports, there are some clubs after Chuba, but Belgian first division side STVV are the front runners to sign the 22-year-old, although there have been no concrete resolutions.

A move away from England could be what Akpom needs to get more game time, after his several loan moves to English Sides, BrentfordCoventry CityNottingham ForestHull Cityand Brighton and Hove Albion.
