It is being widely reported that Southampton winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is currently undergoing a medical at Arsenal ahead of a deal to bring him to the club.
He’s been linked consistently with the Gunners for some time now and speculation increased this week that a deal was close. The 17 year old played 27 times for Southampton last season, scoring 9 goals.
Quite where the youngster fits in to the current Arsenal squad remains to be seen. Arsenal have a large collection of wide forwards and it’s hard to see if his immediate future will be at the Grove or if he’ll go out on loan for the season.
Many fans will be wondering why Arsene Wenger is set to spend the guts of £10m on a 17 year old winger having not yet bought a centre-half, but Arseblog News, whilst also confused and slightly bewildered, would encourge people to take the signing on its own merits.
This means ‘Can’t believe he’s bought a 17 year old winger and not a centre-half, the cunt’ comments are entirely unnecessary for this particular discussion. Thank you!
