10. Chuba Akpom (17 years, 11 months, 5 days)

At the beginning of the 2013/14 season, Chuba Akpom was given his Premier League debut by Arsene Wenger. The young striker came on in injury time to replace Olivier Giroud, who had scored in the match. The match finished Sunderland 1-3 Arsenal and although Akpom had no time to make an impact, his substitution appearance was a statement of intent from Arsene Wenger.

However, Akpom's Arsenal career didn't materialise quite the way it first seemed in 2013. In total, he only four Premier League appearances and didn't score a single goal. After six different loan spells, Akpom was finally sold by Arsenal in 2018.

Having won the Super League Greece since leaving Arsenal, Chuba Akpom got his biggest career move to date in 2023, when he signed for Ajax. Having had a good breakout season in Eredivisie, he seems to be making amends for his shortcomings at Arsenal and could be one to watch for the next few years,


How many of these Arsenal players could you guess from the back of your mind?
