Arsenal boss shuts down claims of departed stars

Arsene Wenger has hit out at the claims that Kieran Gibbs and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will progress better having left Arsenal.

The pair both left the club on deadline day this summer, joining West Brom and Liverpool respectively, and both have made comments talking positively about their departures.

Do Wenger’s emotions hold Arsenal squad back?

Arsene Wenger has revealed that allowing Kieran Gibbs to leave Arsenal this summer ‘hurt’ him, more than the departure of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

The Gunners sold both players in the final day of the transfer window, with the Ox joining Liverpool and Gibbs joining West Bromwich Albion.

Does Ox’s Liverpool move mean Arsenal have replacement lined-up?

Arsenal have accepted the fact that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain wants to leave the club this summer, and surely the versatile star will need replacing.

The former Southampton youth product has allowed his contract to run into its final 12 months, and seems to have made his decision clear that he would not be signing a new deal.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been linked with the exit door this summer, but Arsenal boss Wenger is keen to keep him at the club.

Arsene Wenger has stripped Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain youngster tag, and told him he must now show consistency for Arsenal.
