Does Arsene Wenger want to keep the England international attacking star in the Arsenal squad I wonder? That must be the question that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is asking himself at the moment, because even though the Ox was one of our top performers in the strong end to a disappointing season and has entered the final year of his current contract, there has been no contact with him or his people about a new deal.
According to a Daily Mail report the dynamic and dangerous 23-year old had been led to believe that the talks over a new deal would be done quickly, but with the season ending weeks ago the Gunner is beginning top wonder what the delay is.
The report goes on to say that there are a few of our big Premier League rivals keen to snap up the player so it seems pretty odd that Arsenal and Wenger are giving him any reason to consider whether it might be better to move on. It did seem as though the manager’s cautious use of such a promising talent was finally over but this contract delay could have Chamberlain wondering about that as well.
Do you think that Wenger and Arsenal are at risk of losing our player with this contract delay or do you think they may just be getting some other transfer business wrapped up first?
