The Mirror is reporting today that Arsenal will complete the signing of Southampton’s 17-year-old winger, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain this week for £12million. We have been linked with the winger for most of the summer and now this deal could finally be concluded.
I am not too excited about this signing as I feel we need to be making big name signings of players who are established. Chamberlain is just another copy of Theo Walcott. We need a player to come in who can replace Nasri and Fabregas if they do decide to leave. We already have options of player who can play out wide.
It will also surprise me if these deal does go through for the reported £12million. It is very unlike Wenger to spend so much money on a young player who has not even had experience in the Premier League.
What do you think of this potential deal?
