“Chamberlain is a player on the up”

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has urged Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to stay with the club and says the midfielder will become a ‘very great player’.

“I think he’s had in his career some bad moments,’ said Wenger. “He’s had some small injuries but last year he was much more stable. Personally I believe he is a hugely talented player who is on the way up. He will continute to move up beecause the potential is there. Today he is conscious of his qualities. Personally I believe he will be a very great player.”
