Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is a young English attacker - a winger who can play through the centre also - at London club Arsenal. Alex began his career in southern England for the club Southampton. He came through the Saint's youth setup, and made his debut in League One (the English third division) in 2010, making 2 appearances at the precocious age of 16.
The next season he burst into the limelight as a regular for the team making 41 appearances and scoring 10 goals as he aided Southampton's promotion back to the Championship.
Following such a successful season at such a young age, Alex was subject to enormous transfer speculation in the 2011 offseason. Eventually, he decided to move to Arsenal - following the route of former Southampton starlet Theo Walcott - for a speculated fee of £12 million, taking the number 15. So far in his Arsenal career, Alex has been used mainly in cup competitions - with his sole appearance in the Premier League as a substitute in the game Manchester United embarrassed Arsenal 8-2 in London. He has scored twice for his new club already, including once in the Champions League.
Alex has also enjoyed representing England at various youth levels, beginning with the U18s in 2010. He made appearances one appearance in that squad, and three at U19 level before being whisked into the U21 setup in 2011. He has scored three times for the U21s - a hat-trick against Iceland. The young winger has enormous potential for Arsenal and England.
