Arsenal striker Chuba Akpom wants Arsenal future and England cap

Chuba Akpom

The teenage striker is hoping to play for Arsenal and England for years to come.

In recent weeks Arsenal striker Chuba Akpom has emerged as a permanent feature in the first-team at The Emirates. He seemed to leapfrog Yaya Sanogo in the pecking order before the Frenchman was loaned out to today's opponents Crystal Palace and has been impressive in his cameos so far.

Whilst Arsenal fans are still awaiting a first goal from the player his pace, intelligence and natural ability will soon see him notch one for the Arsenal first-team.

His record for the Arsenal youth team was sensational, scoring goals seemingly at will and the 19-year-old was rewarded for his progression earlier in the month, signing on the dotted line of a new and improved long-term contract at the club.

So what does the future hold for the player. In a question and answer session for Arsenal's official Twitter account he was asked just that very question earlier in the week. His response certainly highlights his lofty aspirations:

And why not?

Akpom has as impressive a youth record as a certain Harry Kane did at Tottenham Hotspur and just look at him. 23 goals this season and on the verge of an England call-up, he is certainly a player to look up to for Akpom.

If he can start finding the net from the Arsenal bench then who knows, he might just achieve his dreams in the near future.
