Everton & Man City target Oxlade-Chamberlain, Guardiola a big fan

Everton and Manchester City are eyeing a summer move for Arsenal misfit Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, The Mirror claims.

What’s the word?

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has struggled to find a long-term slot in the Arsenal side and speculation on his future continues to persist, despite the fact the young England international has impressed in a more central role in the past month.

With a wealth of competition at Arsenal, whether he was to play centrally or out-wide, the former Southampton man may consider a move to another side this summer- with Everton and Manchester City both keen on his services.

Whether Arsenal would be willing to sell is debatable though, with Oxlade-Chamberlain proving his worth recently, but the Gunners may have to persuade him to stay in North London.

What move would be best?

If Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was to leave Arsenal, then it’s debatable which of the two suitors would be the best fit for him. He’d probably get more opportunities at Everton but it would be difficult to turn down the lure of Pep Guardiola and Champions League football.

At City though, Oxlade-Chamberlain’s competition out wide would come from two fellow youngsters, Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane, whilst the centre of midfield is equally well stocked with David Silva and Kevin De Bruyne, amongst others.

Oxlade-Chamberlain would probably find the same issues in Manchester as he would at Arsenal, so if a move is solely down to wanting more first-team chances then Everton would be the best fit.
