Akpom Windfall for Arsenal

Arsenal are reportedly in line to receive £1.1million from Chuba Akpom’s move to Middlesbrough, according to The Sun UK.

Reports claim the PAOK striker, 24, is on the verge of a £2.75m Teeside switch.

And 101 Great Goals add that former club Arsenal will pocket a tasty 40 per cent of the fee.

Akpom has been a smash hit during his two years in Greece, scoring 18 goals in 79 matches to do the Double.

And PAOK are now on the verge of reaching the Champions League group stage after beating Benfica to set up a winner-takes-all match against Krasnodar.

However, it looks like Akpom will not be there to help his team against the Russians as a move to the Riverside looms.

Akpom has reportedly pledged his international future to Nigeria while Olanrewaju Kayode has joined Turkish side Sivasspor on a season loan deal from Shaktar Donestk in Ukraine.
