While Iwobi has become a regular in the Arsenal first team, Apkom still features for the U-21 side.

Iwobi, however, believes that his friend will be an Arsenal first regular in the nearest future.

I don’t really know who to expect because you never know who will come through. But I’d say Chuba Akpom will be the next to join,” Iwobi told fourfourtwo.com when he was asked about the Arsenal youth team.

He and Glen Kamara are probably my best friends at the club.

"I’ve known Chuba since I was about three years old – I used to play Sunday League with him for Rippleway in Newham, and now we’re still at Arsenal together.”

Akpom, 21 is yet to make a decision on the country to represent with England and Nigeria waiting.
