Former Arsenal striker Chuba Akpom has been told by Middlesbrough boss Neil Warnock to find a new club this summer, according to reports.
TEAMtalk report that Arsenal academy graduate Chuba Akpom has been told by Middlesbrough manager Neil Warnock that he has no future with the club, and his representatives are on the hunt for a new team.
Akpom is still under contract until 2023 with an option for a further year, having only joined Middlesbrough last summer. But he’s now seemingly set for a move, possibly on loan, with Millwall, QPR, Bristol City, and Charlton Athletic all interested.
The 25-year-old started his spell with his new club well, at first. Joining from PAOK, he scored on his debut and followed that goal up with another in his second game. But it proved to be a false dawn, as he scored just three further goals all season.
In total, Akpom has seven goal contributions from 39 appearances, albeit 18 of those appearances from the bench.
The striker’s starts have been far from consistent. Since his first five starts of the season, he hasn’t made more than three in a row at any point in the campaign. But clearly, his goal record needs to improve to earn himself a run.
