Reds to pounce for Gunners contract rebel.
Liverpool are reportedly ready to make a surprise move for young Arsenal starlet Chuba Akprom as he continues to stall on signing a new contract at the Emirates Stadium, according to the Metro.
The 19-year-old has been rated as one of Arsenal’s most exciting young players of recent years, but now that he has entered the final year of his deal with the club he has decided to keep his options open.
Having recently been promoted to the first team, Arsenal have sought to tie his future down long term, but a shock move to Anfield could well be on the cards.
Manchester City, Borussia Dortmund and Dutch side Twente have all made pre-contract offers to prize him away from the Emirates this summer, though he has yet to commit to anybody.
A prolific goalscorer in Arsenal’s youth sides, he has been tipped to make an impact in the first team in the near future, having already made four appearances this term.
