Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is targetting more goals this season, saying that his finishing and placement is something he needs to work on.
The 22 year old was challenged by Arsene Wenger at the start of the season to hit double figures for the first time, and it’s one area of his game he’s looking to develop this season.
Speaking to Rabona, he said, “I’m always working on areas I can improve. My finishing is probably something that needs work as I want to contribute with more goals.
“That’s not just about the actual shooting but also mastering that knack of being in the right area at the right time to score the ‘easy’ goals, as they say.”
He also touched on how he can learn from playing alongside the likes of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez.
“As a footballer, you’ve got to remember that playing with the best players in the world is something you’ve always wanted to achieve. The likes of Mesut and Alexis are two of them, guys who have played for massive clubs in Real Madrid and Barcelona.
“It’s an honour to have the opportunity to learn from them. They’ve bought into the Arsenal way and what we want to achieve, so it’s great to have people like that in our team.”
He does have one goal to his name this season, the winner against Chelsea in the Community Shield, but with Arsenal struggling in front of goal a bit, it’d be timely if he could notch up one or two of those ‘easy goals’.
