Arsene Wenger is reportedly keen on bolstering his side in the January transfer window for the second half of the 2015/2016 season.
Arsenal speedy wing wizard, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been advised to quit the Emirates Stadium for Stamford Bridge by former England international, Ray Wilkins, according to reports.
Oxlade-Chamberlain has been limited to just 6 Premier league starts this season due to injuries and poor form this term.
The former Southampton star has been heavily linked with a move to the Blues as a replacement for the imminent departure of Chelsea’s Belgian star Eden Hazard in the summer. Wilkins believes Oxlade-Chamberlain should leave in time to impress and get more game time to boost his chances of making the England squad for the European Championship in the summer.
Joel Campbell seems to have done what Hector Bellerin did to Mathieu Debuchy by seizing the opportunity and not wanting to relinquish it. Campbell’s performance has been encouraging since he was introduced into the first team squad; especially the Champions league win away at Olympiakos which guaranteed Arsenal a place in the knockout round.
Oxlade-Chamberlain has failed to get on the score sheet or record any assists for the Gunners since he last scored against Chelsea in the Community Shield, while Campbell has raked up a few goals and assists to his credit this term despite breaking into the team in late October.
Wilkins advised the player to consider departing In January ahead of Euro 2016 as Theo Walcott and Raheem Sterling who are direct competition for him in the England squad are ahead in Roy Hodgson’s reckoning therefore a move away to get regular playing time would get him back in the picture.
