Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will be lucky to play again this year after successfully undergoing knee surgery.
There was some suggestion that he could be ready for the start of 2018/19, but that timeline has already been pushed back to November, although I’d suggest that a year could be nearer the mark in terms of his recovery. The club have not provided an official update at this point, although the procedure was to repair a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament, which in itself is around nine months out. However, Oxlade-Chamberlain also suffered damage to the surrounding structures, and even when he does return to the training pitches after extensive rehab, he will need time to regain match-fitness. The injury, which occurred during the Champions League semi-final first leg at Anfield, ensures that he will miss the final on May 26 and ends his hopes of featuring at this summers World Cup in Russia. Speaking earlier this month, Jurgen Klopp said: "I've told him already that we will wait for him like a good wife when a man is in prison." May 15 - 5:40 PM

Liverpool are in a great position to head to the Champions League final after piling on the goals in a 5-2 win over Roma, but the mood was dampened when Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain was stretchered off with a knee injury.

The event occurred in the 15th minute when the Liverpool midfielder challenged Aleksandar Kolarov for the ball and came away with the worst of it. Following the match, Jurgen Klopp said "It's probably a really bad injury" and "If you can say that already before the scan then it's never good news." If one is to speculate ligament damage that requires surgery and rehab, Oxlade-Chamberlain could be out until well into next season. His hopes of inclusion in the World Cup are all but dashed unless the scan results are much better than expected. Even in a best case scenario, it would be tough to imagine him returning for another league game this season, so he can be dropped in fantasy draft formats.

In one of the season's most dramatic affairs, Liverpool were able to hand Manchester City their first defeat, winning 4-3 in a nail-biter.

Goals continue to fly in the post-Coutinho era and it was Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain's performance that stood out the most. He would get the Reds on the board first, finishing a counter with a low drive, assisted by Roberto Firmino. City would level as the sides were 1-1 at the break but the Reds attack had a customary attacking explosion with three goals in nine minutes. The Ox would first pay Firmino back, setting up the Brazilian who finished with a sweet chip. Minutes later, Sadio Mane would fire a beauty from the edge of the box into the top corner, with Mo Salah teeing up the goal. Salah then had Anfield rocking, lobbing a ball over the keeper whose clearance attempt fell right to the Egyptian. City would score twice late to turn a rout into a narrow win but the Reds defense had done well up until then, despite the absence of Virgil van Dijk.

Liverpool wrapped up their summer shopping with another major acquisition in signing Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain from Arenal for a transfer fee of £35m.

Chelsea were just as active in trying to land "the Ox", perhaps even more so than Liverpool, but apparently the decision came down to the player's desire to dedicate his tools to a midfield role and Liverpool by all accounts are willing to provide that chance. That means the pacey Oxlade-Chamberlain will be in the mix for a spot in Jurgen Klopp's midfield three, where Jordan Henderson, Emre Can and Georginio Wijnaldum are currently holding court. There is also veteran James Milner in the mix and we cannot forget that Philippe Coutinho end the summer still a Red. There is certainly plenty of fantasy potential with the Ox but he will have to establish himself and fight off stiff competition to become a dependable regular starter under Klopp.

Sky Sports News understands Chelsea have agreed on a fee with Arsenal for England international Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Reports suggest Oxlade-Chamberlain's time as a Gunner has come to an end. The winger reportedly rejected a new and improved contract offer last week which would have committed him long-term to Arsenal and looks set to depart despite being elected for the 4-0 thumping at Liverpool on Sunday. Should the proposed deal transfer happen, the addition of Oxlade-Chamberlain will provide Chelsea manager Antonio Conte with a versatile player that will challenge Victor Moses at right wing-back and strengthen his options in midfield. With the summer transfer window cut-off on Thursday, a medical and personal terms are expected to be complete over the next 24/48hrs.

The Sun are reporting that Arsenal and Tomas Lemar have agreed to personal terms ahead of a proposed move from Monaco to North London.

Arsenal continue to be linked with a move for Monaco star and up-and-coming France international Tomas Lemar. After reportedly having two bids rejected by the Ligue Un champions, Arsenal are reportedly going back with yet another bid along with an agreement on personal terms with the player himself. The two clubs are reportedly far apart on their valuations of Lemar but this one seems to be rising to the surface frequently enough to believe it is more than spurious gossip. The bigger question for Arsenal supporters to consider is whether this signals overall strengthening or if Lemar is seen as a replacement for Alexis Sanchez whose status is still decidedly up in the air.

Reports suggest Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has rejected Arsenal’s latest contract offer with the England international prepared to leave on a free next summer.

The 23-year-old has less than 12 months remaining on his current deal and the winger, who is attracting interest from Liverpool, will not consider an extension after failing to get assurances over first-team football. Arsène Wenger must decide whether to hold onto Oxlade-Chamberlain in the hope of convincing him to stay, and risk losing him for nothing next year, or cash-in now with Jurgen Klopp prepared to pay in the region of £25 million. The second half of last season saw Arsenal move away from their typical 4-2-3-1 set-up, with Oxlade-Chamberlain flourishing in his new wing-back role, a formation [3-4-2-1] which helped the Gunners win the FA Cup although they narrowly missed out on a Champions League qualification spot. He has spent 6 years at the Emirates, making 129 Premier League appearances [9 goals], since signing from Southampton for £15 million.

The timetable for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's return to the line-up has been downgraded from "maybe for Week 37" to "maybe before the end of the season".

It is a shame to see Oxlade-Chamberlain unable to continue what has been a stellar run of matches since Arsenal switched to the 3-4-3 formation. Oxlade-Chamberlain who has seen his entire tenure at Arsenal held back by injuries and a struggle to mold his obvious talents into a productive role, seemed to have struck gold as a right wing-back. The injury comes at the wrong time for the player who will want to go into the summer being considered a starter heading into next season. Hector Bellerin will likely start the rest of the season in the right wing-back position and is certainly a more likely candidate to be considered the starter headed into next season as well.

Arsenal winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will face an uphill battle to be fit for the upcoming double gameweek.

The right wing-back was taken off in the 36th minute after pulling up with a hamstring injury that will have Gunners fans fretting his availability for the remainder of the season. Said manager Arsene Wenger after the match: "I don’t know. We don’t know how bad it is. He came off with a tight hamstring and we know maybe in the next 48 hours how bad it is." Arsenal have a double gameweek against Stoke City and Sunderland this week before the season finale against Everton, followed by the FA Cup final with Chelsea. The club currently sits three points behind fourth-place Manchester City and four behind Liverpool with a game in hand on the Reds.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger confirmed that winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is fit enough to start against Spurs on Sunday.

The England international has been deployed as a wing-back in recent weeks, impressing in a 2-1 extra-time win against Manchester City last weekend in the FA Cup. But he picked up a minor knock that saw him held on the bench as a precaution against Leicester City during the week. But against rival Tottenham this weekend, Wenger could deploy the speedy winger back where he creates the most problems: "He will be fit enough to start because it was more precautionary to leave him on the bench [against Leicester]. I didn’t want to take the gamble with him."

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was the man of the match as Arsenal beat Manchester City 2-1 at Wembley to advance to the FA Cup final.

Arsenal started slowly against Manchester City as Pep Guardiola's men had the better of the possession and chances in the first half. As Arsenal tried to assert themselves it was Oxlade-Chamberlain, switching between the center of the park and a right wingback role, who was their brightest performer. After City went up 1-0 on a lightning-fast breakout it was Oxlade-Chamberlain who got them back in it with an excellent cross that found Nacho Monreal whose odd man rush saw him unmarked in the penalty area. While The Ox had been substituted by the time Alexis Sanchez pounced on a loose ball in the six yard box for the winner, it was Oxlade-Chamberlain who stood out the most for the Gunners as they booked their third FA Cup finals appearance in the past four seasons.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger reiterated the importance of keeping Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in a Gunners shirt.

His comments came prior to the club's devastating 3-0 loss to Crystal Palace on Monday, where Oxlade-Chamberlain was an unused substitute. Reports suggest the 23-year-old is upset about his playing time under Wenger and, with only a year left on his current deal, has been linked with the likes of Manchester United and Liverpool. But Wenger said keeping the winger is of major importance: "I personally think it is vital that Chamberlain stays at Arsenal. We bought him when he was very young, we have built him up and I think he has a great mentality and a good football brain. It would be a big damage for us to lose this kind of player."

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has recovered sufficiently from his hamstring injury to be in contention for Week 29 at the Hawthorns.

Whether Oxlade-Chamberlain would start, and where, even if healthy is a big question with Arsenal's midfield returning from illness, injury and suspension. Ox has played well in the holding role but it is difficult to presume that he is the preferred starter anywhere on the pitch at this point.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain looks set to miss out this weekend despite Arsène Wenger’s early optimism that the hamstring injury he suffered in the FA Cup does not look serious.

Arsenal were taking no chances in the quarter-finals against Lincoln City on Saturday as Wenger named a strong starting XI to face the non-league outfit. The Gunners cruised to a comfortable 5-0 win, but the victory came at a cost as Oxlade-Chamberlain was forced off with less than 30 minutes on the clock: "[It’s his] hamstring," Wenger said post-match. "I don’t know [how serious], we have to assess it [but] it didn’t look a big one." Even if tests confirm the 23-year-old did not suffer a significant strain, it’s likely that Arsenal will not want to risk the England international ahead of the break for fear of exacerbating the problem. Oxlade-Chamberlain has been in decent form of late, starting in 7 of the last eight games, and the news will come as a huge blow. However, with a Champions League place still to play for, Wenger will want to ensure he has a healthy squad for the run-in.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said he doesn't think there is much behind rumors saying Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain wants to leave the club.

The 23-year-old winger has been linked with a summer exit after reportedly being unsettled with his lack of starting opportunities under Wenger. But Wenger said he continues to rate Oxlade-Chamberlain highly and sees his future with the Gunners: "I am surprised by that [reports] because I believe he has developed well and played well when given his chance. When you are somewhere you have to want to be there first. After that I say I rate him highly and I think I showed that by staying behind him when he was injured. I personally wish he stays - I think he is a very promising player who has developed well and who looks also to have the values we rate."
