Oxlade-Chamberlain having Arsenal medical

196

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!

When RVP gets injured, we need decent back-up, and Walcott is that. Gervinho seems to be more of a wing player than a central striker.

He may turn out to be the next Dennis Bergkamp. Would you still say we should have turned him down?

Nobody knows how much we have to spend, so I can’t understand why people get so arsey about how much a player costs. Let the Arsenal accountants deal with that one.

Perhaps he can play centre half

Great success. Now we can make an entire team out of young wingers…

Christopher Flanagan

I think it’s worth remembering this: signing Chamberlain and signing a centre back are not mutually exclusive. Hopefullly there are further additions to come this week.

Azim Ali

Good signing. Center half and a left back now before the deadline.

Paul
Paul

When Wenger makes this signing he’ll be moaned at for buying kids and not addressing the centre of our defence. Then again, if he doesn’t and Liverpool/Chelsea/Manure buy him, then Wenger is useless and has missed out on another quality prospect.

So you’ll call him a cunt until he wins a trophy, then he’s god again!!

Alex Fisher

I’m still for Wenger to be in charge but the fact is that he’s not prioritising the areas in which we need to strengthen. While I won’t moan at all about a fine young prospect joining the ranks, he’s one for the future and right now Arsenal needs someone proven.

What worries me is that we focussed the first part of this window on signing Gervinho, who I’m glad we signed, but then why did it take so long to put in a £10m offer for Jagielka? And what about def mid and left back, as these are also areas where we’re taking a gamble – especially on the likes of Gibbs who hasn’t proved his fitness enough to be given the role – IMO

Alex Fisher

and it’s not just because we desperately need a CB, it’s also so they have time to bed in and forge an understanding with the others – all the more crucial given the teams we face at the start of the season.

Why in gods name do we need other winger? What was the point in sighing spam head? I think we need to double bluff Wenger so he buys a Cb, if we all start calling for a forward he might think about signing a Cb.

On another note, did anybody see that the looters smashed up the spurs shop. I have to say what they were doing was wrong, but there was a ray of sunshine there to.

Wide men : Asharvin, Walcott, Nasri, Gervinho, Rosiky, And more…
Centrebacks: Vermalen ( all the rest aren’t good enough)
Soooooooo…….

George Coolstar

Ok, I’ll judge it on merit and in light of what we need.

Merit:
He won’t help us at the moment and will cost 10m. We already have enough wingers, and he’ll just add to the congestion, so won’t play first team football, or will just increase the wage budget. Great, he’ll be good in the future when we’re out of the top 4.

What we need:
We need a cb, we need a good cb, we need an experienced cb. We don’t fucking need a young winger that won’t organise our shambles of a defence. Wenger won’t sign a CB, I can tell you that now. He definitely won’t sign what we need, an aggressive cunt of a cb rather than some skinny ball-player from France. Let’s come back to this after he hasn’t signed a good CB.

this is a joke if he thinks this will reassure the fans he must be smoking crack or injecting skag he really is losing it i dont care how good he will be in 5 years time etc or how fast he is its not a position we need players in and if sends him out on loan after spending 10 mill or whatever the price what a waste of money SIGN A FUCKING CENTRAL DEFENDER U FRENCH ****

I’m pleased we signed him. Yes, we need a CB, but any player that is quick, can score goals and give us more cutting edge can only be a good thing. Who would you rather play on the right? Eboue? Perma-crocked Theo?

sagnawig
sagnawig

so you would have this squad now minus cesc and 40 milion in the pockets of the board members and wenger, another 17 year old inexperienced player who possibly wont even get in the first team squad, may go out on loan for a season or two ? and super quality squilacci, also clown eboue is one of wengers favourite players so will probably stay which you will enjoy in arsene we trust pussy.

argonaut
argonaut

That’s not what I am saying. Yes, we need to replace Nasri and Cesc and buy a CB etc. I have no doubt we are trying to buy those players. I very much want our useless shite offloaded and replaced with far better players.

As well as buying for our first team, we are always on the lookout to add to the academy. That is also part of Arsenal as a business. We will always sign talented young players as buying them now makes sense before they get too expensive.

As for the line about “in arsene we trust pussy”, if that is your idea of an insult, then you must be some sort of Spurs supporting retard.

Plev

I don’t think anyone would be annoyed about this “waste of 10mil” occured AFTER we signed I defender. But in Arsenal’s current situation it’s kind of a WTF moment. But I’m still in Arsene’s corner, we still have time and I really do think we’ll bring in another defender.
Arsene said it before the Debacle(Emirates) Cup; “We try very hard..errr.. we will sign one more defender at least.. and eeeerrrm.. we are very active behind the scenes..” With this comment and our “attempt” to sign Jagielka, you have to assume there is one on the way. I hope something is in the works! Any deal with Barca for Cesc has to include Abidal in my opinion.
This signing is strange given there was no mention (from the club) of signing another forward/winger since Gervinho came in. I can’t really work out the rationale.. Even though he’s more of a winger our attempt to sign Mata was to replace Cesc/Nasri, but this is different. I wonder if it has something to do with us not being successful at getting a work permit for Ryo..? Or it could mean he wants to move Theo in the middle as someone mentioned, but this is unlikely as Theo didn’t play in the middle during pre-season.
I’m fucking confused by this, then again I’ve never seen the kid play. But from the outside looking in it’s worrying that 2 of our 3 “super quality” signings have been teenagers from League 1.

DamGooner
DamGooner

Exactly! We have added pace to our forward 3 which was a big missing link in the past couple of seasons…Gervinho, Walcott, Ryo, Chamberlain are proper wide players not AMC playing wide and playing 1-2’s and coming inside all the time! The timing definitely sucks however! CB should have been the priority…this deal could have been done and announced later…it is not like the kid is going to play anytime soon. This will not help Gazidis in any shape or form, just get people more irate. Good young players are always welcome, but given we have a defence made of paper and are already a fag packet away from: Traore, Djourou, Squillace, Sagna starting the season (….feels slightly sick!)….we should have been making a decision and spending the asking price on what we need….A CB! By all means buy Chamberlain, but don’t announce that until you have a CB in bow to present beside him….just pissing people off…I just ‘Can’t believe he’s bought a 17 year old winger and not a centre-half, the cunt’….SMDH….

sagnawig

we need to sign a defender asap not 17 year old babys ffs injuries happening already etc we need to keep squillacci away from the first team and away from the bench just let him rot in the reserves then rotate between verm,kozzer new centre back and djorou clown and possibly have miquel etc as back up for cc or fa cup who cares about why we have signe him its the fact hes more than willing to spend cash on a 17 year old uknown inexperienced kid but as soon as you mention either premier league quality or somebody over the age of 20 we get fuck all responses or bullshit comments like were busy on the phones working all night wenger has lost the plot imo

Hopefully this wasn’t the great injection of talent that Wenger hinted might be announced this week but still a good signing. He’s a good player and it shows Wenger is willing to spend money; perhaps the lack of signings in essential areas thus far is caused by problems that are out of his control!

Andrew Jones

1) This is the price of a good young player these days (£5m rising to possible £12m
2) Its not his fault he is not a centre back.
3) If he goes on to become the next Arsenal legend, £12m is a snip
4) If someone else got him and he became the next United legend, we would moan
5) Still time for a super quality centre back!

I read an article that the big German Unit Mertesacker (?) is open to a move to the Premier League, his club is prepared to let him go and in last year of contract. We need him, but must sign him before the other prick clubs find out and hijack the move. I hope Arsene is reading. SIGN HIM NOW!!!

GoonerEll
GoonerEll

Agreed. We should sign Mertesacker immediately. Forget the medical. Don’t care if he’s got some small injury. Sign him up. Having said that, I think it’s a little ambitious to think we can sign him “before other prick clubs find out”. I think these “other prick clubs” may be able to read articles on the net as well as you, Needham!

FabrėGeir

That’s great news. Now that’s one extra winger on the right side which we don’t need, and when Glen Campbell arrives tomorrow, we’ll have another winger on the left side who we don’t need. I think Arsene is trying to create the first ever central defense made entirely up of wingerz.

sagnawig
sagnawig

agree mate vela is a winger as well he is shit and wont play as usual and wil end up going out on loan, whats the point in filling the squad up with young wingers etc no actual goalscorers except rvp in the squad even more inexperience especially if nasri and cesc leave the defence should have been sorted out 6 years ago but we have to put up with the alzheimers suffering french clown he has to be sacked , dont let him leave us in this mess ffs

edyk

I take it you mean Joel Campbell. His imminent move was actually called off until he had finished playing for the Costa Rican U20s. Talk of him arriving again is for the moment just rumours. Even if we did sign Joel it wouldnt be a bad thing, at that price he could potentially play as a CF.

But thats besides the point, buying quality young players certainly makes us a better side, if Oxlaide is bought instead of a CB then we have the right to be extremely irritated, but I cant understand what is so difficult for some Arsenal fans to get their head around the fact the window closes on August 30th. Not the day after losing a friendly, or the day we sign a 17 year old.

Alex Fisher

I agree that if a great choice was available he would have snapped him up. He tried at the beginning of the window with Phil Jones (although he is only 19 and not the 100% proven player we need). However, even if the top draw CB isn’t available, a CB that’s better than most of what we have IS (Jagielka is one example) and more could have been done earlier to try and strengthen our biggest weakness, instead of leaving it till one week before the season starts.

The situation is such that he has to bring someone in even he can’t find a Vidic type player. At the very least, that area must be improved.

FabrėGeir

Forgot to say: now, imagine Walcott at 21(?) taking on the role as Chambles’ (17) father figure. This is the Arsenal I love!
