Arsenal's young 17-year-old English forward Chuba Akpom has so far had a promising pre-season with the Gunners.

A strong and pacey forward, Akpom can play anywhere across the front line and was a regular in the youth team last season scoring twice in 15 appearances whilst still being a schoolboy.

Akpom struck his fourth goal of pre season against Urawa Red Diamonds to confirm another win on Arsenals tour of Asia, adding to his impressive run in the first team over the summer.

The youngster managed to get into Arsenal's first team last season when he travelled with the Arsenal squad to Greece to face Olympiakos in the Champions League, where he made the substitutes bench.

The most exciting and talented prospect to come out of Arsenal's youth set up since Jack Wilshire, Akpom signed his first professional contract with the club in October on his 17th birthday and is regarded as a hot prospect for the future by manager Arsene Wenger.

And he can score goals. With six to his name last season season, he is a fierce physical player, dangerous in the air and has the ability to run past defenders. 

He is also sharp in the box and calm and composed with penalties. Akpom is an intelligent and mature player who is able to hold up the ball and is class when it comes to link up play.

Akpom, one to watch for the future.
