Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will be allowed to move to Arsenal, but only if the London club can come up with a decent offer for the star, according to the Daily Mirror.

While Oxlade-Chamberlain has pleaded with Southampton for a move to the Barclays Premier League, the newly promoted npower Championship side is blocking any club from speaking to their star man.

But Arsenal are reportedly desperate to sign the winger, who is rated at £12 million, and are requesting to speak to Oxlade-Chamberlain about a possible deal.


And now, according to the paper, Southampton have quashed reports that they won’t speak to Arsenal about a move for the 17-year-old.

“It’s not true to suggest that Nicola is refusing to even discuss offers for the player,” an insider said.

“If someone makes what he considers to be a decent offer he would listen. But it would have to be cash up front, at a level that the owner finds acceptable.”

Arsenal will certainly be boosted by the news, as Arsene Wenger makes moves in the transfer window to build on the squad an end a so far six-season-long trophyless run.
