Is Oxlade progression opening door to Bellerin’s Arsenal exit?

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been impressing in a new-found wing-back role in recent weeks, which has left Arsenal team-mate Hector Bellerin benched.

The Spanish defender has been strongly linked with a number of big-named sides, including Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City in recent transfer windows, and one offer is believed to have come in from the Citizens last summer. Our club obviously rejected any advances, but after an average season for Bellerin, he has since found himself on the bench.

The 22 year-old was in the Premier League Team of the Year for last term, and according to Arsene Wenger, struggled to recover fully from his injury in December, so has been rested of late.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been the player to come into the side in his place, although in a new wing-back role due to the switch from 4-2-3-1 to 3-4-2-1. The England international has flourished in his new role, in fact has been thoroughly impressive in a number of positions this term, including in a surprise deep central role also.

Granit Xhaka and Aaron Ramsey are also beginning to enjoy the new formation, and may well keep the Ox out of the deep roles, but with him enjoying his spell at wing-back, he may not need to worry.

Hector Bellerin has been a key player since breaking through into the senior team, and is amongst the fans most favourite players, but has given fans little to cheer about with his appearances in 2017.

Bellerin’s absence from the first-team of course feeds the speculative rumour-mill, although Wenger has played down any exit rumours, and due to his new contract which was signed earlier in the campaign, we have no urgency to give in to pressure.

If he was to be sold, he would no doubt command a hefty fee, but does his absence mean he could be sold? How much would you accept for Bellerin?

    Wenger is as slippery as fork, he is only giving plenty of game time to the Ox in order to trick him into signing an extension 😉👉 then it’s back on the bench for you sonny!

      Listen to yourself, boy.

      As our classy reliable greatest manager ever said, “he wants Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to lead the best of British at Arsenal for the next TEN years. Wenger believes the Ox is finally on the rise, Alex has had little problems but looks on an upward curve. Before he played a little bit inhibited, now he plays with the attitude of ‘I’m a player’.”

      Oxlade-Chamberlain was creative, aggressive and defensively sound. This was as good as he’s ever performed for Arsenal. Considering some of the trepidation voiced when the teams were announced, they all showed they have what it takes. Ox’s excellent performance will definitely help the team, so many good performances on display. I have never seen Ox look that confidient, audacious and totally in control of what was happening.

      All of course thanks to our magnificent classy tactical masterclass Supreme Leader in Arsene the Superb One. Hail Arsene, sing with me, f*tboy gooney, one arsene wenger.

    If United beat Ajax in final then Mourinho will have won 2 trophies in his first season.

    I would rather win 2 trophies than finish fourth to be honest

    Wenger will celebrate 4th like its a trophy

      And you won’t celebrate going to the CL too? Enough with the Wenger hate and choose what’s best for the team. It is not good for Arsenal if we don’t make top 4 because of;
      1. We won’t be able to keep star players who wish to play CL football.
      2. We won’t be able to attract players who wish to play CL football.
      3. Arsenal will probably slowly become a Liverpool and to a lesser extent of Everton.

      I get all the crap about the board not spending money on players and Wenger need to go, which are both true but as a fan I definitely want to watch my team playing in the CL. My brother and a lot of friends are United fans and oh how they hate not being in the CL. For me personally, I would only watch the finals or an epic game for example Bayern vs Real or Barca if Arsenal doesn’t make it.

        We have been in the champions league for how many seasons now ?

        1. How many of our star players still left ?
        2. How many star players have chosen us?

        Champions league football has done nothing for us so honestly why do you think that will change now ?

          Both Chelsea and Man Utd have proved that missing out on Champion’s League means nothing if the club has real intent, is willing to employ managers that attract top players, and then willing to buy top players (All of which Arsenal are capable of).

      With Arsenal and to be fair most other premiership clubs there are enough Completely fabricated and outright fantasy ‘links’ to make a very very long chain. It’s how they keep selling newspapers and obtaining traffic and clicks.

        Same shit. Another day.

        How do you guys not get bored of Arsene is shit, no he is not talk? It’s been on for 10 years and some of post this in various ways about 100 times a day.

        Gawd!

        Arsene wenger is the manager of arsenal. He manages the team. He is given money by the club and spends what he is given. He doesn’t own the club and he is not a shareholder, nor is he on the board of directors. He is employed by the club to manage the team, nothing else. He is given a budget to work with by the club.

        Stan Kroenke is the majority shareholder of arsenal. He and no one else decides how much to spend. That’s because he owns over 60% of the club and has a controlling stake.. Arsenal spent £90 million this summer because as the majority shareholder he decided to spend that money.

        I hope that’s cleared it up for you.

        Two doubles, an unbeaten season,record FA cup wins and the fact he is arsenal’s most successful manager certainly make him a club legend.

      If we can get at least 5 out of 6 signings from Monaco and a new manager…we will be good

      Bakayoko 40m

      Mendy 35m

      Lemar 30m

      Bernado 40m

      Fabinho 30m

      Total 175m

      Mabbe would be good but at 120m ….its not gonna happen unless our 3 billionaires step in

      If they do …6 players for a total of 295m

      Sales of the sanchez and ozil can bring it down to about 200m

      Plus the deadwoods and flops…nett spend could be down to about 100m

      Great bargain

          So do you by the sounds of it. A little too much.

          Are your house walls covered in images of Arsene Wenger your most kind, knowledgeable, and zip conquering leader?

    We have seen many of our players have good one season then fail the next 2-3 seasons like Ramsey, Theo, Coquelin. I hope Ox is not a one season wonder.
