Wenger:

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has been adamant the England global will not be leaving the Emirates this summer.

Aside from Mesut Özil and Alexis Sanchez, one player whose future is surrounded in unknowns is Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Chelsea have made a £25million move to sign Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, according to reports.

Arsene Wenger has said that he wants Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to remain at Arsenal and grow into the "very great player" he can become (via The Mirror).

And the ex-Wimbledon defender suggested that Manchester United should put together a lucrative offer to bring Oxlade-Chamberlain to Old Trafford from Arsenal to replace Herrera.

Arsenal, the report says, has rejected any initial interest from its London rival, but now Chelsea plans to increase its pursuit and launch a formal bid.

Liverpool and Chelsea have both shown an interest in the player this summer.

The Oxlade-Chamberlain rumors have been circulating for several weeks at this point, with the most recent developments claiming that Chelsea were "poised to make a £25m move".

Arsene Wenger has reiterated throughout the window that Chamberlain will be an Arsenal player when the window closes this summer, his latest quotes come from the August 9.

"I think in his career he had some bad moments because he had some small injuries", he told reporters.

"Last year he was much more stable". He's today very conscious of his qualities as well, something he was not always.
