Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could still be an Arsenal player next season despite fervent speculation linking him with a move away, according to the Daily Mail.
The midfielder’s season was devastated by a knee ligament injury and he made just nine appearances in the league, but will now be hoping to get back to full fitness in time for the new campaign in August.
The injury ruled him out of England’s Euro 2016 campaign, though it is questionable if he would have made the 23-man squad anyway after some indifferent form for the Gunners.
Leicester, West Ham, and Southampton have all reportedly shown interest in signing him, but with Arsenal yet to sign anyone on the wing, it looks as if Arsene Wenger wants to persevere with him, for now at least.
It may well stay that way, too, as Wenger is placing such priority on signing a striker that he may run out of time to improve the midfield, which could just re-open the door for Oxlade-Chamberlain next season.
