Arsenal Message Board
"Arsenal came close to securing a £10m deal for the forward in January but a deal failed to materialise.
Oxlade-Chamberlain is almost certain to leave the newly promoted Championship club and his preferred option is to follow another Southampton academy graduate, Theo Walcott, to north London"...
The name's a bit of a mouthful But...
Who's this then.Never heard of him except on teletext when he scored. I thought we had enough youngsters to be gettin on with. No?
Good post Banana boy (at long last!)
It makes no sense to blow your entire seasons transfer budget on someone who may or may not turn out to be a carbon copy of the useless Walcott.
Personally I think Wenger will do what he does best, spend half of his 'war chest' unearthing the next Bendtner, or finding a couple 'gems' from Ligue 1.
The other half lining the boards pockets of course!
WENGER KNOWS BEST!!!
Francenal = 4TH!!!!
(Thats 6 years!!!)
Le Prof = CHAMP19N.....Fact.
TBH Dodge, I would prefer it if Henri Lansbury stayed on, and Oxlaide went elsewhere.
The only big game he had last year (England) he didn't do anything of note.
I'm not sure he would break into the Arsenal side anytime soon, and that would mean wasting a couple of years he would be better off staying at Southampton, or perhaps somewhere like Villa, Bolton et al.
