Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain departure thanks to one man

Wenger knows his side were vulnerable on the counter against Stoke in their recent defeat

According to the Daily Mirror, despite substantial interest from LiverpoolChelsea are in pole position to sign Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain from Arsenal.

Winterburn questioned whether a move to Arsenal's London rivals - or Liverpool, who have also been linked with the England global - would allow Oxlade-Chamberlain to play in his preferred position, but believes that the midfielder is eager to leave anyway.

England global Oxlade-Chamberlain turned down the chance to extend his contract at the Emirates Stadium last week, rejecting a deal which would have seen him earn around £180,000 a week.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain of Arsenal celebrates his teams victory during the The FA Community Shield final between Chelsea and Arsenal at Wembley Stadium on August 6, 2017 in London, England.

Oxlade-Chamberlain did not play like a £35million bargain in Arsenal's wretched display at Anfield on Sunday, but it is easy to see why the two Premier League big guns want him. I think he needs a new challenge now, and he's of the age to embrace a new challenge.

The future of Arsenal and England star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain continues to make wavs on Tuesday morning.

Oxlade-Chamberlain, nicknamed The Ox, could be joined at Stamford Bridge by Leicester's Danny Drinkwater, with talks continuing between the clubs.

Kenedy is predominantly a winger but has occasionally played as a left-back, where Newcastle are short. So he could compete with Moses at Chelsea.

"I want to keep my best players".

But most likely, it seems Oxlade-Chamberlain will not wearing red but rather blue pretty soon. "And can he really be guaranteed a starting place above those players?"

But Solhekol adds that Liverpool are still in the running to land him.
