The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have been impressed with the fine form of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain over the past year or two…
Often a peripheral figure in the Arsenal first team, Oxlade-Chamberlain’s development has really ramped up recently, and Arsene Wenger seems to be trusting him more as a result.
During the 2016/17 season, he featured in a grand total of 29 league matches, highlighting just how highly thought of he is by Arsene Wenger.
Now, it seems that his manager is ready to reward him for his fine form, with the Mirror reporting that the midfielder is in talks with Arsenal over a new deal – with Oxlade-Chamberlain reportedly turning down Liverpool interest to stay with the club.
For the Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern, this is the dream situation. Not only is Oxlade-Chamberlain ready to stay at the club, but it appears as though he is highly-valued by the Arsenal brass – and he could be about to get a contract to reflect that.
A versatile figure, the 23-year-old has proven his worth for Arsenal this season, playing in a variety of positions – including as a wing-back. Indeed, he is now reaching an age where he is no longer a potentially good player. Instead, as he has proven this season, he is already a good player – and Wenger is ready to treat him as such.
