Akpom has already scored three goals for Noel Blakeâs England Under-19 side this season, and has forced himself into Terry Burtonâs Arsenal Under-21 side.
âHe has personality [and] he has quality,â Wenger told Arsenal Player.
âI wanted him to be with the first team, taste what it is [to be involved] in a Champions League game, and hopefully he will join us very quickly. It could happen very soon.
âHeâs more a guy who likes to participate in the build up, a guy who is brave, a guy who makes good runs and is not a typical goal chaser.
âWhere he must improve is to finish things off. But he creates for others, he creates for himself, and just needs to be a bit calmer for the finishing. Thatâs something he will get easily."
