Frustrated Chamberlain hints at leaving Arsenal
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has revealed that he is considering a move away from Arsenal in a bid to secure first team opportunities.
The 23-year old, who joined Arsenal 5 years ago, as a youngster, has struggled to get playing time and has only been considered for the starting line up a few times. Most times, features as a substitute.
While he is happy to play for Arsenal, the lack of regular playing time has left him frustrated and he says he may consider a move away from Arsenal for this reason.
“I’d be lying if I wasn’t going to sit here and say that it has crossed my mind that I need more game time. As a footballer, you want to play every game. Me being myself, I’m not happy when I’m not playing,” he told Sky Sports.
“There is going to come a time in my career, and I think I’m approaching that, when I do need to be getting more regular football, but my focus completely and utterly now is on playing for Arsenal and still trying to break into the team when I get the opportunity.
“There is that in my mind that I do want to get more game time. There comes a time in your career where you have to re-evaluate things and think, ‘Is that going to be here or elsewhere?’
“I’m not there at the moment, I’m fully focused on this season, playing my part in that. When you get to the end of the season, just like managers do where they re-evaluate their team, players re-evaluate their personal situation, and I’ll do that at the end of the season.”
