37. Chuba Akpom

Now regarded as one of the club’s brightest prospects, Chuba enjoyed an outstanding 2012/13 campaign during which he established himself as the first choice striker for the U21s during his first season as a scholar.

The youngster’s good form also saw him make the first-team bench for the Champions League trip to Olympiacos, whilst he also received international recognition, being propelled into the U19 set-up for England.

The Hale End product, who is extremely skilful, made his debut for the U18s as a schoolboy and was expected to continue at that level last season, but, instead, was entrusted as a regular for the U21s, off the back of some impressive showings in pre-season.

He scored with regularity throughout the campaign, reaching double figures for the second-string, which included six goals in four games between February and March.

The striker may be in line to make his first-team debut this season, and, in the mean-time, is expected to continue to feature for the U21s.

    I have seen this boy play many times. He has the physical attributes of a striker, tall, quick and full of tricks. Gives defenders a hard time on the pitch and also scores good goals. I’m sure he’ll be adapt well in the U18′s come September.

    Hopefully he’d represent the Super Eagles of Nigeria in future *fingers crossed*

    A great prospect who could be one of the best ST’s in the world when older.
