Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger has snubbed the rumours which were linking club wonderkid Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain with a possible loan move until the end of the season saying that the youngster is almost ready to break into the first team.
Reports have appeared saying that the Ox might be in for a loan move after his downfall since October when he managed to impress everyone with a couple of appearances.
“He is very close now and he will be used in the next six months for sure,” Wenger told Arsenal.com “He is working on [his defensive side], his urgency and his committed level as well.
“When you are a young, talented player you have to experience that talent is good, but that commitment at the top level is highly needed too. He is an intelligent boy, he understands that, and I am very happy with him. I am confident that in the next few weeks he will play.”
Chamberlain was brought in the summer at the club and has managed to show that he will certainly be one of the most important players of the club throughout the years after he’ll develop into the footballer he can be, but still didn’t win a first team permanent spot despite his great performances.
