Chuba Akpom

The youngster, who has been at the club since he was six, is training with the first-team again.

There is no doubt that Arsenal's young striker Chuba Akpom is one for the future. He has been banging in the goals for the under-21s again this season, after finishing last season in terrifying form.

The striker has also shone on consecutive pre-season tours so Arsenal fans know plenty about the lad.

But so far first-team opportunities have remained tough to come by for the striker, who has been compared to Ian Wright in some circles.

His loan spells away from the club have not exactly been fruitful either. He failed to score in spells at both Covnetry City and Brentford but started this season with a hat-trick with the under-21s and scored another triple at the start of December.

So he is still in the first-team picture and trained with them this afternoon at London Colney.

He certainly looked like he was enjoying being back in the first-team training fold, enjoying a playful moment with Arsenal's wrapped up warm £35 million superstar Alexis Sanchez.

He will hope to get some first-team football alongside Sanchez at Arsenal in the near future.
