A tough-tackling midfielder who also possesses creative qualities, Akinola showed some significant signs of improvement in his second season at Arsenal.

The youngster was involved with the U23s in the first half of the campaign and also featured in a first-team friendly against Brentford.

Akinola then headed on loan to Dundee United but he played just once for the Scottish side before suffering an injury.

It is anticipated that Akinola could go on loan again this season.

A surprise signing in 2020, he was previously at Lincoln and Huddersfield Town.
