Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain offered to West Ham

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could be one of the first casualties of Arsene Wenger stripping his squad this summer, with reports claiming that the Arsenal midfielder has been offered to West Ham.

The Daily Mirror speculate that Wenger is set to hold a clearout of his current team following their failure to secure the Premier League title this year. Whilst they’re not officially out of contention, they do stand 10 points behind Leicester City and seven points behind Tottenham with four games remaining.

West Ham form

It seems that The Ox is destined to be amongst the crop that are sold, too. The 22-year-old has been an inconsistent performer over the past year and injuries certainly haven’t helped his cause.

As a result, he’s seen his stock sink at the Emirates Stadium. No longer is he an influential regular starter, but now an asset apparently on the cusp of leaving the club.

West Ham, for their part, are a team on the up and up. Under Slaven Bilic the Hammers have impressed this season - they’re now competing for a top-four finish in the Premier League.

The Ox on the move?

The potential for European football and, of course, their move to the Olympic Stadium, sees their levels of ambition rise. As they do so, they’ll need players to carry out their plans moving forward.

Oxlade-Chamberlain, ability still very much intact, could be a good addition to the exciting east London project. His best has yet to be seen, perhaps a relative step down would provide a long-term step up.

Arsenal fans, do you think The Ox should be sold this summer? Let us know your thoughts in the comments box below.
