Reports reach us that Arsenal have offered Alex Oxlade Chamberlain a new deal worth £125,000 a week. I like The Ox, but I don’t think he’s worth that much a week though, maybe £80,000-£100,000 a week. You see, that’s the thing with us offering English players too much money that they become difficult to move/sell because no one is willing to meet their wage demands. Cue Kieran Gibbs, Carl Jenkinson, Jack Wilshere, even Theo Walcott.
Sky Sports quotes:
“Arsenal have offered reported Chelsea and Liverpool target Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain a new deal, according to the Daily Star.
The England international has a year left on his current deal and has been linked with a move away from the Emirates.
But the Star say he has been offered a four-year deal worth £125,000-a-week and the Gunners are “optimistic” that it will be accepted.”‘
It’s left to be seen if Oxlade Chamberlain will accept the offer on the table.
