Mikel Arteta pushing to sign a former Arsenal player

Mikel Arteta remains interested in a move for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain as he continues to bolster his Arsenal squad.

The Gunners are making significant progress under the Spaniard, but he knows he needs more players in the squad to help the team to continue achieving positive results.

The January transfer window will offer the Gunners a chance to bring in reinforcements and one player they could sign is Chamberlain.

Fichajes.net says Arteta has told the Gunners he wants the English midfielder in his squad.

Chamberlain left Arsenal for Liverpool in 2017 and he has become an important member of the Reds’ squad that has won the Champions League and the Premier League.

It hurt some Arsenal fans when he left the club, but he has become better and he would return to the Emirates as a more experienced player.

The current Arsenal squad has several talented players in it, however, it also needs more experienced heads to help them achieve their objectives.

Chamberlain fits that description and he could become an invaluable member of the team at the Emirates if he returns.

Liverpool has several midfielders who are ahead of him in the pecking order and the Reds might sell him.

However, a January move would be tricky because they might want to keep him until the end of the season.

    Let’s resign the Ox and Rambo so we can pay £300+k a week to keep our physios busy

  3. Voyageur says:

    There is this whole narrative about how the Ox became such a better player after his move to Liverpool. I don’t buy it, to me he seems much the same player to his Arsenal days – moments of class punctuated by indifferent performances and long stints on the physio table.

    Could work out but I’d put odds on it not ending well.

      RealTalk…

    Why not rename our club as Arsenal Hospital Club AND SIGN ALL THE MOST CONSTANT INJURY PROVEN PLAYERS AROUND !

    THERE IS NOT A SHRED OF TRUTH IN THIS CLEARLY RIDICULOUS FALSE RUMOUR.

  5. Nigel Hill says:

    Hopefully this is just ox looking to get off the sinking ship!! We dont want him we got wiltshire training with us id prefer we reaigned him on a fitness based salary than waste 30m? On the ox he made his choice we made ours. Plenty of experienced premier league midfielders that can do the job for us but id be looking at frontline because we aint getting numbers we need from our front line

    It seems someone has a sense of humor!!

  7. Bamn-Jah says:

    We don’t need Ox if we’re to sign former player let’s pay all to Serge Gnabry then look for other midfielders

  8. Havyn says:

    Another lie, he’s not an important member of the Pool squad. He won a title and CL there by chance but not a regular. His situation is like Edu who play a part in the invincible team but not a regular.

    We don’t want him. They want to get rid. Don’t let us waste our money.

  9. Nelson says:

    Instead of bringing back Ox why not sign the most current dangerous winger in the world Serge Gnarbry the former Arsenal player

  10. Quantic Dream says:

    Of our former players I’d prefer Ramsey.. would solve our midfield creativity problem. He was always asking for the ball and would go for it straight from the goalkeeper and drive foward.

  11. Y3mmxiii says:

    BIG NO, let’s move on, PLEASE!

  12. FingersFurnell says:

    Let’s start a rumour about Iwobi (remember where you heard it first folks!)

    Seriously I can’t think of a single thing Arteta has done so far to indicate he would be looking to bring somebody like The Ox back

    I don’t see any “old boys” being on his shopping list any time soon, having said that maybe Joe Willock and Newcastle might realise they got a bit carried away with his loan spell performances and they made a mistake, still recent enough to think that he could still fit into Arteta’s plans and now that Newcastle have their money injection Joe isn’t the right profile for them going forward and/or they might get relegated

    You are having a laugh!
    Get Bissouma someone who is very good, hungry and has great determination on the ball an PL experience Look forward not back.
    We made same mistake with Pepe over Zaha.
