Leicester join Oxlade-Chamberlain chase

The Ox in demand

English champions Leicester City are set to provide stiff competition to Liverpool in the race to sign Arsenal winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. The 22-year-old is currently on the fringes of the Gunners first-team, and a move away from the Emirates looks a likely option.

The Express suggests that the Foxes will look to bolster their attacking options over the summer with the challenge of the Champions League on the horizon next season.

It is added that Arsenal's Oxlade-Chamberlain is among the prime targets for Ranieri, who is well known for his ability to groom low-key talent into top-class professionals.

The Ox has struggled to firm a regular starting place under Arsene Wenger, and the arrival of fresh recruits over the summer could well spell an end to his Gunners career.
