Arsenal’s summer pursuit of Southampton star, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is set to be finalised this week, with the youngster signing for the Gunners in a £12m deal.
The young star, who didn’t feature in Southampton’s first game of the season against Leeds at the weekend, told the Sunday Mirror: “Southampton, and especially the fans, have been brilliant to me ever since I broke into the first team.
“It has been fantastic helping them to get promoted. But now I feel I’m ready to play in the Premier League.”
The 17 year old attacker follows in the footsteps of Theo Walcott who signed from Southampton in 2006.
