Nigeria’s football icon, Kanu Nwankwo has tipped Arsenal forward Chuba Akpom to be the best in the nearest future.
The 20-year-old has worked his way into the first team of Arsenal but was sent on loan to Championship side Hull City last season where he made 36 appearances and registered three goals.
Kanu who was in England recently had the opportunity of meeting the London born star and offered him some words of encouragement in his fledging career.
“Nice to see my younger brother Akpom and happy to talk with him and advise him and support him,” Kanu wrote on his official instagram page.
“I wish him all the best because he got what it takes to be the best and his going to be the best.”
Akpom is eligible to play for England and Nigeria but Super Eagles winger Sone Aluko recently revealed on a Television program monitored in Lagos that the young Gunner is aiming to represent the Three-time African Champions.
