Via the reliable @gunerblog comes news that Chuba Akpom is likely to spend the rest of the season on loan in the Championship.
Looks as if Chuba Akpom is in talks with Norwich, Forest and a couple of others about a Championship loan. #afc

The young striker recently signed a new deal and was involved in some first team action around the start of the year, but now with things reaching the point of the season where experience is so important, he’s found himself sidelined as the manager sticks with his senior options.
The reality too is that those players are also better at this point but a good loan spell between now and the end of the season will aid his development significantly.
Akpom has certainly outgrown youth/reserve team football but isn’t quite ready for first team action at Arsenal just yet, so this will be a step towards that.
Good luck to him wherever he ends up.
