It is hardly a surprise but Arsenal now have yet another striker leaving the club in this transfer window, as it has been revealed by Belgian media outlet Het Laatste Nieuws that Chuba Akpom has has arrived at Sint-Truidense for a routine medical, before signing a contract that will keep him at the club for the next three years.
Akpom and his father were among the over-17,000 spectators that watched Sint-Truidense draw 1-1 with Racing Genk on Saturday in the Belgian First Division. They are currently in 6th place in the League and they are hoping that Akpom can score goals to help them get back into the European places.
Akpom has actually been at Arsenal for 16 years since he was 6 years old, but despite his great promise in his younger days he has only made 12 appearances for the club and only 4 in the Premier League.
But his senior performances simply never met up to his promise and there are very few Arsenal fans that will miss the youngstr. Maybe he’ll do well in Belgium.
