Arsenal will be listening to offers for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in the summer with Arsene Wenger citing concerns over his failure to develop as expected. The 22-year-old joined Arsenal from Southampton in the summer of 2011 but has yet to make a mark on the team, with injuries being a major factor in stunting his progress.
The Independent reports that the 22-year-old will be available for a fee in excess of £15m ($21m) as Wenger looks to bring in new faces next season and dispose of those who he believes are surplus to requirements at the club. Mathieu Flamini, Tomas Rosicky, Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Debuchy are all likely to leave the club next summer but Chamberlain's departure is expected to be the only high profile transfer out of the club.
Chelsea, under Jose Mourinho, were interested in his services last summer but Wenger was unwilling to sell. However, the player's lack of progression over the course of the campaign has ostensibly had an effect on the manager's plans. The winger started against Barcelona in the first leg of the round of 16 tie at the Emirates but the England international could only last 50 minutes after a clash with Javier Mascherano, which led to a knee injury, potentially ending his campaign.
Chamberlain only has one goal in the league this season, which came against Bournemouth earlier this month, but has contributed this campaign by scoring the winner against Chelsea in the Community Shield, which ended Wenger's drought against Mourinho. The Gunners have an overwhelming number of options on the right, with Joel Campbell, Danny Welbeck, Theo Walcott, Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey all capable of playing in the position.
Meanwhile, the Gunners will resurrect their league campaign with a vital clash against Manchester United, two weeks after they defeated Leicester City at the Emirates to give themselves a lifeline in the title chase. A win here will be Arsenal's first double over the Red Devils in a decade, having comprehensively beaten Louis van Gaal's men 3-0 at the Emirates in October.
