Arsenal starlet is half Henry’s age.

Young Arsenal striker Chuba Akpom was delighted to meet the club’s all-time leading goalscorer earlier this week.

The 18-year-old, who has made just two senior appearances for the Gunners, is in New York on a preseason tour with the North London club.

Arsenal take on New York Red Bulls on Saturday and the star attraction of that clash will be Thierry Henry, who joined the MLS outfit from Barcelona in 2010.

Henry scored 228 goals during his Gunners career, winning two Premier League titles and three FA Cups in the process.

The 36-year-old Frenchman met up with a few of Arsenal’s current players in the build-up to Saturday’s game.

Akpom uploaded the below picture to Instagram, along with the message: “The king of all kings”.
