Speaking to the The Sun, Arsenal target, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has made his intentions fairly clear. He said: “I’ve heard Arsenal are in for me and to join a top-four club is what I hope for.
“When the bus comes along, you have to jump on it and make the most of your opportunities.
“It’s not every day you get a chance like that. I believe in my own ability and that I have what it takes to play in the Premier League.”
It is understood that Arsenal are in pole position to snare the fledging youngster ahead of other interested parties, Manchester United and Liverpool.
He went on to say: “I’ve been at Southampton since I was seven and enjoyed every minute of it. They’ve brought me up in a really good way.
“The fans and the manager have been great and the club have made me what I am today.
“But I feel it’s time for the next step. The way I see it, the Premier League is where I aspire to play. You aren’t at the top of the game until you get there.
“I could spend a year in the Championship and, though this might sound negative, I could get injured and that opportunity might be lost.
“The next year another young star could come through and the opening might not come around again.”
