Arsenal attacker on Everton radar

Oxlade-Chamberlain to Everton?

Arsenal contract rebel Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is reportedly on the Everton shortlist to replace Ross Barkley at the end of the season.

The England international has just a year left on his Gunners deal similar to compatriot Barkley, but he is still reluctant to extend terms with the north London club.

Oxlade-Chamberlain have been often restricted of playing time in the first-team and he is understood to want assurances of regular first-team football under whoever manages the club next season.

According to The Sun, The Ox is among the top names on the Toffees shortlist with Barkley seemingly keen on a move away from Goodison Park.

Barkley has been the subject of interest from Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur in recent weeks, and the Merseyside club could be tempted to discuss a potential swap with Arsene Wenger's side.

Meanwhile, Ronald Koeman also has an eye on Swansea City star Gylfi Sigurdsson after he missed out on his services during the last summer transfer window.

Sigurdsson has contributed hugely to the Swans' Premier League status, and he is understood to be committed to the Welsh club in spite of their struggles in the top flight.
