Soon after Al-Hasawi’s tweet, Forest themselves announced the deal on their official website.
Akpom is a highly-rated young striker who has made seven appearances in all competitions for Arsenal so far this season.
The teenager has featured three times in the Premier League for the Gunners this campaign, and has given a good account of himself.
The youngster, who is currently part of the England Under-20 set-up, has played in the Championship before, with Brentford and Coventry City last season.
Forest have been struggling with injuries in their attack in recent weeks, and the arrival of Akpom is certainly going to boost them in that department
Dougie Freedman’s side are currently ninth in the Championship table with 57 points from 39 matches, 10 points behind sixth-placed Ipswich Town.
