Arsenal ace Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has seemingly dropped a hint over his future after posting an image on his Instagram account.
Speculation has been rife over his future as he’s in the final 12 months of his contract with Arsenal, with The Express noting that Chelsea are now keen on the 23-year-old.
Having been silent for well over a week on Instagram, it only added to the concern for Arsenal supporters who will undoubtedly hope he stays at the Emirates having just enjoyed his best season at the club since he joined from Southampton in 2011.
Oxlade-Chamberlain steered clear of injuries, stayed fit and found some consistency while showing his versatility too last year, and so Arsene Wenger will be desperate to keep him in north London.
Some Arsenal fans think this is another indication of his intention to stay, as seen in the comments box with some noting: “Hands up if you’re staying” or simply “He’s staying”, while Chelsea fans and other Premier League rivals have interpreted it a different way.
“Welcome to Chelsea”, “Waving goodbye to Arsenal and coming to Chelsea” and “If you come to Chelsea, you can win everything” were just some of the comments left on the post. Some Arsenal fans remained adamant that it was a positive sign while others interpreted it as being nothing more than the England international taking a corner and not making any sort of cryptic statement as he prepares for the new campaign with the Gunners.
While they’re trying to wind their rivals up, some of the Chelsea faithful believe that Oxlade-Chamberlain could be bidding farewell to the Emirates. Will he stay with Arsenal?
