Forest and Arsenal fans react on Twitter to Akpom's loan signing

Nottingham Forest 2

Nottingham Forest completed the signing of Arsenal forward Chuba Akpom earlier today.

Arsenal fans are convinced that Chuba Akpom will impress at Nottingham Forest after the striker completed his loan move to the City Ground earlier today.

Akpom has joined Forest on loan until the end of the season, and Arsenal supporters appear to have little doubt that he will make a good impression at Championship level.

The 19-year-old is considered to be one of the Gunners' brightest prospects and fans of the north London club are excited to see him in action.

Here is the best reaction from Arsenal fans on social media site Twitter.

Forest supporters are also looking forward to seeing their new recruit in action, as he should help improve their attacking threat.

The Reds are still hoping to make it into the play-offs, and the addition of Akpom could be what is needed to fire them up the table.

The striker will bring pace and power to their forward line and he should stretch defences, helping to create more room for the likes of Michail Antonio and Henri Lansbury to work in.

It means that Forest now have one of the most feared front-lines in the Championship, and Reds fans are optimistic about the impact Akpom can make. Here is the best reaction from supporters of the Midlands outfit.
