Chuba Akpom joins Greek side PAOK Salonika


Arsenal striker Chuba Akpom has left the emirates to Greek Super League side PAOK Salonika in a permanent move.

A member of Arsenal’s football academy from the age of six, the 22-year-old forward made his debut for the U-18 side when he was 15, before securing his first professional contract at 17.

Akpom made a total of 12 first team appearances during his time with us.

He has been sent on loan spells to Brentford, Coventry City, Nottingham Forest, and Hull City.

In 2017, Akpom helped Brighton and Hove Albion achieve promotion to the Premier League, but joined Belgian First Division side Sint Truiden on loan in January.

The deal is subject to the completion of regulatory processes.
