In a move that will surprise absolutely nobody, Arsenal will not be selling Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to Galatasaray.

The Turkish giants had earmarked Chamberlain as a potential incoming, as they looked to make a marquee signing in the transfer window.

But unsurprisingly the Gunners have no interest in selling the England international, who is still a major part of Arsene Wenger's plan at the Emirates, according to ESPN.

Despite the Turkish transfer window closing on Monday the 20-time Super Lig champions were exploring the possibility of a deal for the 22-year-old.

The former Southampton man has played a part in all four of Arsenal's games this season, starting two, and is tipped to have a big impact on the side if he can stay clear of injury.

Despite an on and off five years in North London, Oxlade-Chamberlain has still racked up 121 appearances for the Gunners, scoring 13 goals. He is also a full international having been capped 20 times by England.

It never seemed likely the Gunners would let one of their brightest talents go without an eye-watering fee, and it is highly likely the Turkish side would not be able to pay the price required to prize him away from the Emirates, if he was remotely available.

With only hours left in the transfer window it is unlikely Arsenal will complete any permanent new signings, unless something extremely drastic happens.

However there has been talk that Russian international Aleksandr Kokorin could be joining the Gunners in a loan deal.

Arsenal fans, just how good can Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain be for the Gunners and this season and in the future? Is Kokorin a good signing? Have your say below!
