Question: How does a player who had two league goals and seven assists last season (it's not all about stats, but still) court the interest of Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City?
We're not entirely sure, but that appears to be the case with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, according to reports by Sky Sports and The Mirror, with both suggesting that the Arsenal winger/midfielder is growing frustrated at his lack of game time at the Emirates (which is sort of what happens when you follow the Theo Walcott school of just deciding to not get any better at football.)
Despite playing 45 games for the Gunners last season, the 23-year-old is said to have grown frustrated at a lack of regular first team football (that'll definitely improve at City and Chelsea) while also having to wait for a new contract offer from Arsenal.
Last October admitted he could leave in search of regular first-team football at another club.
He said at the time: "I do want to get more game time. There comes a time in your career where you have to re-evaluate things and think, "Is that going to be here or elsewhere?'."
"I'm at a stage now where I definitely want to be playing and [so I am] pushing [the manager] to play me, getting feedback and if I'm not playing, finding out why I'm not playing."
To be fair, if Antonio Conte can turn Victor Moses into a world-beater, then the Ox should be just fine.
