Manchester City plot shock £25M move for Arsenal winger who has directly contributed to six Premier League goals this season

Manchester City are plotting a shock £25 million move for Arsenal winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, according to The Sun.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has scored twice and provided four assists in the Premier League so far this campaign. The Sun believe that City could make a move for the explosive England international in the January transfer window as he enters the final 18 months of his Arsenal contract.

The Sun note that City boss Pep Guardiola has been fond of Oxlade-Chamberlain since his performance for Arsenal against Bayern Munich in the Champions League two years ago. Arsene Wenger, however, is believed to be keen on holding onto the 23-year-old.

As per The Sun, Oxlade-Chamberlain would double his current £70,000-a-week wages if he was to move to the Etihad.

City could undoubtedly do with an injection of energy after falling behind leaders Chelsea in recent weeks. If The Sun are to be believed, Oxlade-Chamberlain could well be the man to revive their season.
