Sky Sports Pundit Jamie Carragher believes Arsenal duo Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Theo Walcott should leave the club for the good of their development, via HITC Sports.
The duo had a poor campaign last term and were tipped to leave the club in the summer transfer window. However, they preferred to stay and fight for their future at Arsenal but Carragher believes they should leave the club if things doesn’t get better.
Jack Wilshere left the club on loan to AFC Bournemouth on deadline day and Carragher believes Walcott and Chamberlain sould follow Wilshere’s step in the future.
Just like Chamberlain, Wilshere struggled with injury last season and the midfielder aware of the fact that this season would be crucial to his development opted to leave the Emirates in search of regular playing time.
The Former Liverpool defender has now adviced Walcott and Chamberlain to do the same.
“Wilshere featured in three of England’s games at Euro 2016,” Carragher wrote in The Daily Mail . “He admitted on Arsenal’s tour of America that this will be a definitive season for him and I like that he has chosen to go to Bournemouth to get up and running.
“Given Arsenal’s record with injuries, it might even be that a new way of working allows him to be available more.
“Perhaps in the future Oxlade-Chamberlain and Walcott will follow his lead. This is a make-or-break campaign for them. If it doesn’t work out, it would be best to try something new.”
Walcott in particular rejected the opportunity to leave the club in the summer transfer window, insisting he wants to reestablish himself in Wenger’s first team this season.
