With a host of players ahead of him in the team, several reports have suggested a loan move for the forward, but Akpom believes he can get his chance at Arsenal.

The 20-year-old spent last season on loan at Hull City where he scored three goals from 35 appearances and Akpom thinks he has learnt a lot from his time away from the club.

"I think that obviously reserve football and first team football is a big difference. The Championship is tough, playing games week in week out and experiencing it is a good experience," Akpom told Arsenal’s official website.

"I think that any player if you go out on loan and get as many games as possible you’re going to come back experienced and I think I have."
