Arsenal sell Akpom to Sporting

Chuba Akpom is heading for the Arsenal exit, with a £2million return to Belgian side Sint-Truiden the likeliest outcome for the 22-year-old striker.

Akpom spent the second half of last season on loan at Sint-Truiden where he impressed, scoring six goals in 16 Jupiler League games.

Although Akpom returned to Arsenal for pre-season, he is not in Unai Emery's plans and Arsenal are looking for roughly £2m for his permanent signature.

Akpom has just one year remaining of the lucrative deal he signed at the Emirates in February 2015. Since then Akpom has gone on loan spells to Nottingham Forest, Hull City and Brighton and Hove Albion.
