The 19-year-old is highly rated by the Gunners hierarchy, but he has let his contract run in to its final six months as he searches for more first team appearances. Akpom has only made four appearances so far this season, all coming from the bench.
Now the Reds are looking in to the England Under 20’s international’s availability. Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund are also supposed to be amongst those who are looking to steal the youngster from under Arsene Wenger’s nose.
If this were to go through it would not be the first time that the 65-year-old has let a talented player go to a direct rival. The Frenchman famously let Robin van Persie go to Manchester United, as well as allowing Cesc Fabregas go to Chelsea when he had the option to sign him according to Eurosport.
