Oxlade-Chamberlain linked with Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea 0

Posted on June 20, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has his pick of clubs this summer, with Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea reportedly keen on his signature. The England international, who has just 12 months left on his current deal, looks set to leave Arsenal as a result of a lack of playing time in his favourite position, but where will he go?

Liverpool still lead the race for the midfielder, with manager Jurgen Klopp a big fan of Oxlade-Chamberlain. The Arsenal player’s industry and creativity would see him fit into the Reds side and be a useful player for their Champions League campaign in 2017/18. And with Arsenal out of the prestigious competition, while having reportedly not offered a formal deal to the 23-year-old, it’s hard to see him remaining at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal contract rebel Alexis Sanchez is set for summer exit amidst contrasting claims regarding his future with Gunners.

Arsene Wenger is confident the Chilean star would remain at Arsenal next season, but such belief rests on restless ground with latest reports coming from a respected Spanish journalist Gerard Romero who shed a new light on Sanchez’s future.

Romero claims Sanchez is set to join Manchester City ‘in the coming days’ and the Citizens have been installed as 6/4 favourites to land the Arsenal star.

AS Monaco striker Kylian Mbappe looks set for a move to La Liga champions Real Madrid after turning down interest from Premier League duo Arsenal and Manchester City this summer. The French centre-forward has enjoyed a standout campaign in Ligue 1, helping his side to the title, and has been the subject of interest from a host of clubs.

According to the Metro, Real Madrid have won the race to sign Mbappe after Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola failed to convince the teenager to come to the Etihad Stadium. The Monaco striker’s preference has always been Real Madrid but he’s also mindful about how much game time he will be afforded.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger denied that Chile international could be sold to Premier League rivals, but Manchester City are prepared to test his resolve by an enticing offer.

The Citizens are reportedly ready to submit a £50 million that would also include Belgium international Jason Denayer in order to convince Wenger to sell his most prized asset.

The French tactician was last year keen on a move for Denayer after what has been an overwhelmingly successful season with Galatasaray for the 21-year-old Belgium international.

Arsenal kept their hopes alive of securing Champions League football on Sunday with a victory over a much-changed Manchester United team. There also seems to be little to fear from the Gunners remaining fixtures.

All four of the Gunners remaining fixtures are against teams with very little to play for this season. Arsene Wenger’s side face a trip to midtable Southampton on Wednesday night, before a trip to Stoke at the weekend and home games against Sunderland and Everton.

It’s as if Arsenal fans are in mood for more bad news following a comprehensive defeat at White Hart Lane, but there are growing reports that captain Laurent Koscielny could leave Emirates at the end of the season.

The 31-year-old defender has been one of the most reliable performers for Arsene Wenger’s side this season, during which he made 30 Premier League performances and another eight in the Champions League.

The experienced French international could end up leaving the north London side, however, after another season of failed expectations and constant failure to capture a league title.

Arsenal have left it too late to make the Champions League 0

It has been common in recent seasons for Arsenal to make a successful late bid for a Champions League spot. However, this season they have left it slightly too late to make Europe’s elite competition.

There was massive relief on Wednesday night when the Gunners scraped a 1-0 at home against Leicester. The north London side needed an 87th-minute own goal to win the game against a stubborn Leicester side

The Foxes played more like last season’s Leicester than the one that has struggled for much the campaign. However, the Gunners just seem to lack ideas and the clash seemed to be heading for a stalemate until fortune, or Huth’s shoulder intervened.

Arsenal will look to keep their hopes of Champions League qualification alive on Wednesday night as the Gunners host Leicester at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsene Wenger’s side will head into the clash in good spirits after progressing to the FA Cup final at the weekend with a 2-1 extra-time win over Manchester City at Wembley.

The Gunners form has been mixed of late, but the side from north London won their last top-flight game 2-1 at struggling Middlesbrough. The win over City will restore some of the confidence in Arsenal.

Oxlade-Chamberlain shines as Arsenal reach FA Cup final 0

Posted on April 24, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been the Gunners’ standout star in 2017 and the English international impressed in Sunday’s FA Cup extra-time victory over Manchester City. Oxlade-Chamberlain has been operating as a right-sided wing-back due to the poor form of Hector Bellerin in recent weeks and was key in Arsenal coming from behind to reach the FA Cup final this weekend.

The 23-year-old played 105 minutes at Wembley Stadium and created more chances (3) than any his teammates, setting up Arsenal’s equaliser for Nacho Monreal. Oxlade-Chamberlain also made more dribbles (6) and whipped in eight crosses this weekend. While initially struggling at wing-back, he settled in the position and became influential in turning the tide on Pep Guardiola’s side.

Arsenal are through to the FA Cup final after a 2-1 extra-time victory over Manchester City at Wembley on Sunday afternoon.

City offered the first threat on goal on three minutes, as Kevin de Bruyne dragged an effort wide of goal from distance. There was then a period of the two teams feeling each other out and the Gunners had their first attempt of the game just prior to the quarter of an hour mark.

Olivier Giroud’s header from inside the area was straight at Claudio Bravo. City went up the other end and Petr Cech was forced into tipping a David Silva header wide of goal.
