BBC journalist – Arsenal have agreed deal for 24-year-old star to complete transfer move

BBC journalist David Ornstein has given an update on the sale of another first team star before the transfer window closes on Thursday.

The Gunners are enduring a turbulent end to the month of August after losing 1-0 at Stoke City before being thrashed 4-0 against Liverpool last Sunday.

Arsene Wenger had stated in recent weeks that his priority in the transfer market was to sell a few players to trim down his overloaded first team squad.

And following the exits of Gabriel and Kieran Gibbs, Arsenal have now given the green-light to a transfer move for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain who featured at Anfield last weekend.

According to BBC’s David Ornstein, the 24-year-old is set to join Premier League rivals Liverpool on a long-term deal following an agreement between the two clubs.
