Nottingham Forest have completed the signing of Arsenal’s Chuba Akpom on loan until 31 May.The 19-year-old striker, who spent time on loan at Brentford and Coventry last season, has made seven appearances for Arsenal this campaign, three in the Premier League.
Akpom is currently with Ben Osborn in England’s Under 20s set-up. The striker scored the equaliser in last night’s friendly against Mexico, a game which also saw Osborn make his Under 20 debut. Akpom went on to score in the penalty shootout as England emerged victorious.
Akpom and Osborn are in contention to face USA on Sunday before heading to Nottingham ahead of the Good Friday clash with Wolves.
