The Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain may have made almost 30 appearances for the Gunners already this season, but I think it is safe to say that he will not be too pleased with his contribution to the campaign so far, with more of those appearances being from the bench than not and with just seven starts in the Premier League.
With a place in the England side for this summer’s Euro 2016 to fight for as well, the Ox might well prefer to go to another club on loan if he had the chance. Well according to The Sun his former club Southampton want to offer him that chance and so I wondered what you Gooners out there think of the idea.
I think he definitely needs to play more in order to progress and find his best form and Ronald Koeman and the Saints would certainly be good for his development. He could also help the Gunners when playing against our rivals for the EPL crown.
At the same time, though, he could help us and I think that the Ox is an important weapon for us to have in the locker. Before his last few games I would probably have said yes to9 this loan deal straight away but he has looked better of late and against Burnley he played a big part, including the great run and cross to assist the Alexis Sanchez winner.
Maybe if the deal could be arranged so we could recall him if necessary then it might be a good option. What do you guys think?
