Arsenal’s pursuit of Southampton winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could soon be finalised after the player’s father admitted his son’s desire to sign for the Gunners.

As reported by wearethenorthbank.com last week, Arsene Wenger is determined to sign Oxlade-Chamberlain but Saints Chairman Nicola Cortese is still determined to sell only if a 40 per cent sell-on clause is included in the deal.

Mark Chamberlain, the ex-England winger, stated that his son is desperate to finalise a deal as soon as possible.

“We want Alex to get to Arsenal as soon as possible and continue his development,” said Chamberlain.

“Alex is still developing but there’s no better place to develop than at Arsenal and the Premier League.”

Negotiations between the two clubs are ongoing.
