SUNDERLAND are interested in Arsenal striker Chuba Akpom, according to the Daily Mail.

The 19-year-old is out of contract in the summer, and the newspaper claims Arsenal have offered him a new three-year deal.

However, Sunderland are showing an interest in Akpom, the report also claims, with the likes of Borussia Dortmund and FC Twente also interested in a Bosman deal.

Akpom came on as a substitute for Arsenal in yesterday’s 5-0 win over Aston Villa.
