Wenger: Oxlade-Chamberlain is a player on the up


Arsene Wenger believes Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will continue to go from strength to strength having found stability in his game after years of niggly injuries.

The England international has been linked heavily with both Chelsea and Liverpool this summer having so far refused to commit his long-term future to Arsenal.

The 23-year-old, who moved to the Emirates six years ago, only has 11 months left on his current deal meaning the Gunners could be tempted to cash in on the midfielder rather than lose him on a free next summer.

Asked in his pre-Leicester press conference whether Chamberlain is coming good on his potential, Wenger responded:

“Yes. I think he had in his career some bad moments because he had some small injuries.

“Last year he was much more stable. I personally think he’s a hugely talented player and he’s on the way up.

“He’ll continue to move up because the potential is there. He’s today very conscious of his qualities as well, something he was not always.

“I personally think he’ll be a very great player.”
