Arsenal ace Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has reportedly drawn interest from Stoke City.

It has been well known that the Englishman has just one year left on his current deal, and both Liverpool and Chelsea are believed to be keen on adding him to their respective sides.

However, as reported by The Sun, they could face competition from Stoke who are considering whether to spend in the region of £25m for the talented 23-year-old.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has been with the North Londoners since 2011 however while he stays an integral part of Arsene Wenger’s side, he has never proved himself as a regular performer at the Emirates Stadium.

Just fewer than half of his 129 Premier League matches have come from the bench, while he has been proposed as a successor on 83 occasions in all tournaments.

Transfer to Stoke would see him become a key man for head coach Mark Hughes, who has just let Marko Arnautovic go to West Ham United.

It has been claimed that talks are now ongoing between the Potters and Oxlade-Chamberlain’s officials.
