Are Arsenal eyeing this winger to replace Alexis Sanchez?

Arsenal loanees set to battle it out today as Wolves face Hull City

Arsenal forward Chuba Akpom who is currently with Hull City on a season-long loan deal is hoping that he can grab his opportunity to show his ability. The teenager feels that coming on loan to Hull has given him chances to impress Arsene Wenger and build towards becoming a first-team regular at the Emirates. Today he is aiming to score his third goal in three games for the Tigers in the big away game at Wolves, but he will have to get past the Gunners third-choice keeper Emi Martinez, who featured in the midweek League Cup win. Isaac Hayden is also expected to start for Hull.

Will Arsenal regret letting Benik Afobe leave?

It is amazing that Arsenal have let such a promising (and prolific) young striker as Benik Afobe be sold this season, and could be construed as very strange behaviour from Arsene Wenger, considering that the Frenchman sets high store on bringing hot young English players through the youth system.

Have Arsenal made a HUGE mistake with this striker transfer?
