Akpom wants Arsenal impact
Nigerian youngster Chuba Akpom is keen to make his mark on the Arsenal first team.
The striker has been impressing with the club’s U-21 team so far this season and is enjoying an increased presence in the first team.
“I’m really feeling part of the team,” the youngster told the Gunners’ official website.
“I’m starting to train with them a bit more and I’m getting more of a feel about how it is to be on the bench.
“I’m just dying to get on every game and every minute counts. I try my best to make the most of each opportunity that I get so, when I went out there I just gave 100 per cent.”
The 19-year-old made his second appearance for the North Londoners in defeat against Southampton in midweek, and is keen to get more minutes under Arsene Wenger.
“Every game I’m hoping to get an opportunity. I just want to play. I’m hungry for it now.
“I want to show the boss what I’m made of and I think that I’m ready. I think I can have a good impact on the team. Hopefully I get a chance.”
