Chuba Akpom has joined Nottingham Forest on loan until the end of the season to gain some more first team experience.

Akpom who has recently just signed a new deal at Arsenal boasts an incredible scoring record for the youth sides of Arsenal and made his U18’s debut at the age of 15. In the 13/14 season Akpom scored 15 in 21 and has scored 9 in 11 this campaign as well as featuring in the first team.

This weekend sees Arsenal travel up to Newcastle which is going to be another important game. The game sees Arsenal with a chance to extend their unbeaten run in the league and potentially overtake Manchester City.

The team may be slightly rotated depending on the fitness levels of the 11 who played in Monaco but we will have to wait and see who has recovered or not on Saturday before this is decided.

Kick off in the Champions League is near where Arsenal will take on Monaco hoping to turn over the 3-1 deficit. The match is being labelled as mission impossible, Miracle in Monaco and lets not make any mistakes this is one of the biggest games in Arsenal’s season.

If somehow Arsenal can overturn the deficit, this may well be one of Wenger’s greatest results and will give Arsenal a morale boost for the rest of the season.

Thanks to a few defensive lapses, Arsenal succumbed to a 1-3 home defeat to Monaco and now have a mountain to climb to progress further in Champions League as anything short of a three-goal victory will see them thrash out of the tournament.

However, Mesut Ozil seemed upbeat as he claimed that Arsenal could still seal their spot in the quarter finals overcoming the gigantic Monaco hurdle.

Arsenal are widely known to be tracking Paulo Dybala for some time now and Palermo president has now claimed that the Argentine forward could be on his way to Premier League next campaign.

The 21-year-old striker has had a meteoric rise this season, having found the back of the net on twelve occasions for the Italian outfit and his newly-found prominence has, thus, attracted interests from in and around Europe.
