According to reports from the Guardian, Liverpool will be looking to make a swoop for Arsenal attacker Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain during the January transfer window.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has not quite managed to fulfill his potential at Arsenal since joining from Southampton during the summer of 2011 as a talented young teenager and although the attacker is an important player for the Gunners, he has not been able to cement his place as a regular in the first team.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has performed well so far this season but he has been in and out of the team due to intense competition for places, and with his contract set to expire in 2018, there has been a lot of speculation surrounding his long term future at the Emirates Stadium.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Francis Coquelin has gone on to explain that he brings balance to the Arsenal side.

Coquelin’s loan spell at Charlton Athletic during the 2014/15 season was cut short due to Arsenal’s injury crisis in midfield and since making a return to the Emirates Stadium from the Valley, the Frenchman has unexpectedly managed to become an integral figure of the Gunners’ first team.

The 25-year-old has put in numerous quality performances at the middle of the park for Arsenal over the past two seasons and despite the big money arrival of Granit Xhaka over the summer, the ex-Lorient star remains a crucial component for the North London giants during the current campaign.

 

Speaking to Arsenal’s official website, Alexis Sanchez has gone on to state his belief that he would have enjoyed playing alongside club legend Thierry Henry.

Alan Smith, Ian Wright, Dennis Bergkamp, Ted Drake and John Radford are just some of the legendary strikers to have donned the famous Arsenal jersey over the years but there is no arguing with the fact that the Gunners’ greatest ever frontman was Thierry Henry.

Henry scored a sensational 226 goals in 369 appearances for the North London outfit and he remains the club’s all-time record goalscorer – a feat which looks very unlikely to be surpassed any time soon.

 

As quoted by Sky Sports, former Barcelona midfielder Xavi has gone on to lavish Arsenal attacker Alexis Sanchez with high praise.

Many knew that Arsenal had managed to secure the services of a quality player when they signed Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona during the summer of 2014 for a fee believed to be in the region of around £32 million and it has to be said that the Gunners’ investment on the Chilean superstar has paid huge dividends.

Sanchez has managed to set the Premier League alight with his stunning performances at the Emirates Stadium over the past two-and-a-half seasons and the 27-year-old has been leading Arsenal’s title challenge during the current campaign.

Speaking to Sky Sports News, Bournemouth defender Steve Cook has admitted that he would be happy to see Jack Wilshere join the Cherries on a permanent basis.

Jack Wilshere made a move to Bournemouth on a season long loan deal this summer in his search for regular first team football and as surprising as the transfer may have been, it has to be said that the midfielder’s decision has been justified.

Wilshere has managed to establish himself as a key figure in the Bournemouth side which has performed extremely well so far this season and it is certainly great to see the 24-year-old returning his best following two horrid years ravaged by injury problems.
