Arsenal today confirmed that young striker Chuba Akpom will join Hull City on a season long loan. 

The promising forward has completed a medical and will join Steve Bruce's men today, hopefully bringing the goals that'll see the Tigers contending for a promotion place in the coming season. 

Does Arsenal letting another forward leave the club mean Theo Walcott, who signed a lucrative new contract last season, will finally get his chance up front?

The 19 year old is known for his pace and composure in front of goal, with the potential to terrorise Championship defences. 

Fans of both clubs had something to say on the deal. Here's how social media reacted.
