Arsenal could lose out on Southampton winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. The 17-year-old has been a target of Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger and the two clubs met to discuss the terms of a possible deal. However, they failed to reach an agreement. So, Chamberlain’s move to Emirates in the current transfer window now seems to be uncertain.
The Southampton hotshot has also attracted attention from other Premier League clubs including Manchester United, Liverpool and Fulham. Having realized the market demand, Southampton officials have reportedly put a £10 million tag on Chamberlain who is reportedly eyeing a move to Arsenal. Moreover, it is also believed that Southampton wanted to keep Chamberlain on loan until the end of this season.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is well-known for picking out talented and skilled players and building them into world cup players. Moreover, Wenger always provides enough chances to the young players. So, naturally a player of Chamberlain’s age who is talented would love to join the North London club.
Wenger always maintains a low profile when it comes to big money signing and he never overpays for the players. So, it is pretty much understandable that he would not pay a price around £10 million for a 17-yefar-old boy who is still in his formative years.
