A season-long loan deal is expected to be completed for the young gunner, Chuba Akpom. It is understood that Akpom who was left out of the Arsenal squad that won Chelsea in their community shield match on Sunday despite his preseason form, travelled to Hull to complete his deal and undergo a medical today with Steve Bruce’s led championship side.
The Tigers boss who is keen on injecting young and hungry players to his squad succeeded in nullifying Wenger’s denial of loaning out Akpom. This was confirmed as quoted by him “we’ve still got a little bit to do,” he told the Hull daily mail. “I’m very confident that we’ve got Chuba and the same goes for Moses too”. He also said, “All been well, I hope we can get them over the line. I’m never going to count my chickens but they are just the type I’m looking for.
If the loan deal pulls through for Akpom, his exist would create a vacuum in the attack of Arsenal. This means a deal for France born attacker karim Benzema is in the offing as speculated. To have the requisite squad depth, Wenger must fill in the spaces that would be created by the coming or exist of the players under him.
