Arsenal have a bit of a problem in their hands with recent claims by Arsenal midfield star that 22-year-old international star should in fact be frustrated after finding his chances at the club limited in recent weeks.
Former Arsenal player Gilberto Silva has claimed that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has every reason to be unhappy at the club, according to Tribalfootball.
The midfielder is currently finding first team opportunities hard to come by at the Emirates and reports have linked him with a move out of the Emirates.
The England midfielder has only made nine league starts for the Gunners this term and he is reportedly unhappy with the lack of playing time which is putting his position in England’s Euro 2016 team at risk.
With recent reports linking him with a move away from Arsenal, Gilberto Silva has claimed the player has every right to be unhappy at the club but it depends on him to work harder and push himself into Arsene Wenger’s first team plans.
“I like that he is unhappy with not playing,” Gilberto said speaking exclusively to 888sport.
“I would be very frustrated myself and if you are comfortable on the bench that’s something that is very wrong.
“He has to give himself every opportunity to get back into the starting eleven and this is only something he can do himself.
“No-one will do the work for him. He has to find a way.”
Chamberlain has found himself behind Joel Campbell, Theo Walcott and Alexis Sanchez in the fight for a first team place and with his chances at the Euro’s fading away as everyday passes, the midfielder has no choice but to work harder.
Chamberlain has scored just one goal for the Gunners this term, the goal coming in against AFC Bournemouth.
