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. Sep 1 - 5:55 AM

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."

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain wasn't great but he was solid subbing in for Aaron Ramsey who is himself a sub for Santi Cazorla.

With Aaron Ramsey injured and not a very good holding midfielder even when fit, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's solid performance in the 3-1 loss for Chelsea should offer hope that Arsenal will have a solution at the position next season between a returning Jack Wilshere and the Ox.

Arsenal will have at least one more player missing for the trip to Stamford Bridge on Saturday after Arsène Wenger gave a mixed injury update following the 2-1 home defeat by Watford.

Aaron Ramsey is a certain absentee after he was forced off with just 20 minutes on the clock because of a muscular injury, a problem which could keep him sidelined for several weeks: "It’s a calf strain," revealed Wenger. "I don’t know how long he will be out for, but it’s a calf strain." With Granit Xhaka suspended, Mo Elneny away on international duty and Santi Cazorla struggling to play again this season, the Gunners are without a holding midfielder to partner Francis Coquelin. With any luck, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could be handed his chance in a deeper role as he was against Southampton in the FA Cup, a game in which he excelled. But first, the 23-year-old will need to prove his fitness. "He got a kick on his knee. I don’t think [the injury is serious]. I think he should be alright," although Arsenal won’t know for sure until the player been fully assessed.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's injury at the Etihad apparently looked worse than it was and while the Ox will miss Boxing Day he doesn't seem likely to miss much beyond that.

Arsenal's depth throughout the attacking areas of the pitch makes this a relative non-issue. Alex Iwobi has played well in a larger role this season. If Iwobi isn't making the grade then Arsene Wenger always has the option to move Alexis back to a wide role and insert Olivier Giroud back into the starting line-up. With Lucas Perez also available Arsenal will not lack for attacking options during the festive period.
