Akpom, who only featured for the Gunners’ first team 12 times, failed to score in any senior competitive game.
His most recent loan deal was at Belgian side, Sint Truden, where he scored six times in 16 games having toiled at the likes of Brentford, Coventry, Nottingham Forest, Hull City and Brighton.
Akpom’s deal to PAOK is believed to be in the region of £2 million, although Sint Truden were said to have tried to sign him on a permanent deal before the Greek side.
