Akinola was a surprise signing in 2020 as he joined Arsenal having previously been released by Huddersfield Town.
The midfielder, who was previously at Lincoln, featured prominently for Arsenal U23s during his first season at the club as he made 22 appearances.
A player who is effective at regaining possession, he appears to be a level below some of his team-mates technically.
Akinola could go on loan in the second half of the season as he looks to prove himself in senior football.
