Everton are the latest club hoping to take advantage of the uncertainty at Arsenal by snapping up one of their players.
Ronald Koeman is looking to add that extra bit of quality this summer with a view to a top-four challenge next season.
The Gunners have several players with uncertain futures, but none more so than Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
It’s unclear whether Arsene Wenger wants to give him a new contract, and it may not even be up to the Frenchman if he himself leaves at the end of the current campaign.
The Mirror report that Everton are therefore hoping to pounce, with Koeman set to be given a huge budget.
The Toffees’ need for a new winger may seem all the greater in the absence of Yannick Bolasie, though he’ll presumably be fit again for next season.
Gerard Deolofeu has also left for AC Milan, leaving Everton with one less attacking midfield option.
The same report suggests that it won’t be easy for them to lure Oxlade-Chamberlain to Goodison Park, with Manchester City monitoring the Ox’s situation.
Yet, if it’s game time the England international wants, Everton could well be his best bet.
