However, the 19-year-old has impressed several Championship sides who are all keen on his services until the end of the campaign.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is also looking to give Akpom some necessary first-team experience, so he can develop to challenge the likes of star striker Olivier Giroud for a starting berth.

The likes of Derby, Bournemouth, Ipswich Town, and Nottingham Forest are all monitoring the starlet, but it is Norwich who lead the chase for his signature.

Akpom has been in fine form for the Gunners U21 side this season playing 11 games, scoring nine goals, and supplying an additional two assists.
