Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is somewhat of an enigma.
A player touted to be the more talented version of Theo Walcott – good on the ball, drive, full of pace and energy, athletic as well as versatile in his ability to play anywhere along the midfield.
But five years on from his signing from at the time Championship side Southampton, and what development has the 22-year-old made?
None, to be quite frank.
Oxlade-Chamberlain’s best game in an Arsenal shirt came at the tender age of just 17-years-old, when the north London side took apart AC Milan in the UEFA Champions League knockout stages, but even that magnificent performance wasn’t enough to help the Gunners progress beyond the round of 16.
Now, the England international is out injured for at least the next seven-eight weeks and is a doubt for Euro 2016. He has reportedly demanded a contract upwards of £100,000-per-week and with Arsenal are unlikely to agree to the players demands, it could see his what was supposed to be a long and fruitful career in north London cut short.
Could any of these five wingers replace the Ox?
