Premier League clubs Manchester City and Everton are interested in signing Arsenal‘s 23-year-old attacker Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain – as per the reports from Daily Mirror.

As per the same source, Manchester City‘s chief Pep Guardiola is a long-term admirer of the former Southampton youngsters and been keeping a close eye on since his Bayern Munich’s tenure, and it is also expected that he might make a move in the coming summer.

Chamberlain, who will be entering his final year in the contract in the coming summer, will surely attract a lot of European giants and the Merseysiders and Blues of Manchester are two of them. Furthermore, it is also understood that Ronald Koeman is keen on bringing the 23-year-old to the Goodison Park to replace Gerard Deulofeu – who is certain to leave the club in the summer.

Back in October, Chamberlain stated that he will consider his options at the end of the season and judging by the look of the things – he has only 11 Premier League starts so far – Arsenal does have a thing or two to worry about.

“There comes a time in your career where you have to re-evaluate things and think: ‘Is that going to be here or elsewhere? As a footballer, you want to play every game. Me being myself, I’m not happy when I’m not playing.

“There is going to come a time in my career, and I think I’m approaching that, when I do need to be getting more regular football.”

This is not a fluke that a player of his age needs a regular first team football and Manchester City might fail to offer him the same as they are already load with one of the best attacking forces in Europe.

Everton, on the other hand, will certainly gain a lot from the experience of the youngster as he has some invaluable knowledge of Champions League and others.

The 23-year-old has a big decision to make in the coming summer and we hope he makes a right move.
