Here at the Tavern we just heard the latest rumours surrounding Southampton from one of our resident Saints fans- and it’s raised a few eyebrows.
The England star has been struggling to claim a starting place in Arsene Wenger’s side, whilst his performances when he does get a chance have been largely underwhelming.
Southampton’s offer of first-team football to Oxlade-Chamberlain ahead of the European Championships this summer may be appealing to the young player but it’s unlikely Arsenal will approve such a move.
Oxlade-Chamberlain finds himself down the pecking order for Arsenal, behind the likes of Joel Campbell, and would reportedly welcome a return to the club where he bagan his career.
Southampton are in 8th place in the Premier League and see this season as an opportunity to finish higher up the league and even push for a top four place.
Have your say…..Would Saints fans welcome Oxlade Chamberlain back? Should Southampton be chasing more players? Who would you like to see arrive at St Mary’s? Leave your comments below.
