League One leaders Brentford have announced that Arsenal starlet Chuba Akpom has joined the club on a one-month’s loan deal.
Akpom is a product of the Gunners’ youth academy and impressed during the club’s pre-season tour of Asia.
“I am delighted to welcome Chuba to the Club for what will be his first loan spell away from his home club,” Brentford manager Mark Warburton told the club’s website.
“He is a strong, quick player with an excellent touch and good vision and I am sure he will make a valuable contribution to the squad in the weeks ahead.”
The 18-year-old has made two senior appearances for the north London side in 2013/14, in both the Premier League and the League Cup.
