Amazing return – Arsenal legend, Parlour hails Nigerian forward


Arsenal legend, Ray Parlour, has hailed Nigerian-born forward, Chuba Akpom, for his impressive form this season.

Akpom, who currently plays his club football for Middlesbrough in the Championship, has netted 16 goals in eighteen appearances across all competitions for Michael Carrick’s side.

The 27-year-old is currently the leading top scoring in the Championship this season with 19 goals.

“You can’t really call it at times, but Middlesbrough have been excellent,” Parlour told NetBet Sports Betting via TeessideLive.

“Chuba Akpom has also scored 19 goals in 26 games, that is an amazing return for a Championship side,” he said.

Akpom will hope to lead Middlesbrough to victory when they face West Brom in a Championship tie at The Hawthorns on Saturday evening.
