After yet another injury ravaged season, Arsenal are said to finally let Alex Oxlade Chamberlain leave the club this summer with West Ham, Leicester City and his former club Southampton said to be interested in his services. Arsenal are said to be considering selling him to Southampton if the Saints will allow us sign Sadio Mane in exchange.
Wenger is said to be a big fan of Sadio Mane and will use Chamberlain as part of the deal that will see us signing the high rated African. Should the report be true and Mane signs for Arsenal, it will be interesting in that he will be in direct competition with Theo Walcott for a starting shirt and if Walcott churns out the same performance as last season, the Englishman will find himself warming Arsenal’s bench.
Arsenal will reported offer Mane £80,000 a week to convince him to move to Arsenal and should the deal go through it could well be Theo Walcott is leaving the club this summer as I simply can’t see how Wenger will sign someone like Mane and put him on the bench and knowing Walcott, he will want to be assured of regular playing time which if Mane is signed won’t happen
