Aside from Mesut Özil and Alexis Sanchez, one player whose future is surrounded in unknowns is Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger doesn't want to lose Oxlade-Chamberlain to a big domestic rival.

However, considering one of the key reasons for the former Southampton man to leave Arsenal is the fact that he wants to play in centre midfield suggests the move might not go through, unless Chelsea agree to give Oxlade-Chamberlain a go in his preferred position.

The England worldwide has shone as a right wing-back in Arsenal's 3-4-3 formation and Chelsea boss Antonio Conte reportedly sees him playing the same role at Stamford Bridge.

Manchester United should "break the bank" to sign Arsenal contract rebel Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to replace Ander Herrera, according to Kenny Cunningham.

The 23-year-old has attracted interest from a number of Premier League clubs with The Sun reporting last week that Chelsea and Liverpool were battling it out over the England international's signature.

The Mail reports that Antonio Conte sees Oxlade-Chamberlain as a ideal fit for the wing-back system he deploys at Stamford Bridge and he could provide good competition to both Marcos Alonso and Victor Moses due to his ability to play on both flanks.

"I think he's had in his career some bad moments, ' said Wenger".

Well, that about settles it as far as Arsene Wenger is concerned. He will continute to move up beecause the potential is there. Personally I believe he is a hugely talented player who is on the way up.
