Southampton are interested in resigning Oxlade-Chamberlain at the end of the season, according to reports.
It had been reported that the midfielder is considering his situation at the Emirates while Wenger is not convinced about the midfielder anymore. It is believed that Wenger thinks the midfielder will not develop into the world class winger as he expected and his progress has stalled since he switched Southampton for North London. This reportedly made the French man open to the sale of the England international in the summer.
Chamberlain left the St Mary’s at the age of 16 and with his future at the Emirates reportedly in doubt, Southampton are prepared to give their former academy player the chance to return to the St Mary’s, according to the Mirror, via football fan cast.
The saints reportedly made a last-ditch attempt to sign the winger in the last winter transfer window, though a move failed to materialize, the saints aren’t giving up just yet.
Although the midfielder’s performances this season have been inconsistent as best, that doesn’t deter his suitors because as many as five Premier League clubs will join Southampton in the race to sign the midfielder.
Chamberlain has two goals to his name this season and have made over 33 appearances although a majority of them are from the bench.
