Everton and Man City are also keen on the 19 year-old, whose Gunners contract expires next summer.

Akpom is undecided about penning a new deal knowing that the likes of Danny Welbeck, Olivier Giroud, Alexis Sanchez, Yaya Sanogo, Theo Walcott, Joel Campbell and Lukas Podolski are all ahead of him in the pecking order for selection in the Arsenal attack.

Having spent loan spells at Brentford and Coventry City the England Under-20 international will now be considering his options, having failed to progress at Arsenal following his Premier League debut in September 2013.

Akpom hasn’t played in the top tier since his debut and could feel his future lies away from the club he has represented since the age of seven.

A move to Tottenham would clearly be a contentious one but Akpom may well be open to such a switch if he felt he could force his way into Mauricio Pochettino’s starting eleven.

Harry Kane aside, the White Hart Lane side’s forward line has misfired all season with the likes of Erik Lamela, Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor all struggling for form.
