Alex Oxlade Chamberlain celebrates after scoring for Arsenal
Arsenal winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been cut into 2/1 by bookmakers BETVICTOR to join the Pep Guardiola revolution at Manchester City.
The Spaniard's revamp is well and truly under way at the Etihad, with numerous high profile signings already completed, including the likes of Ilkay Gundogan and Nolito.
The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss has made his intentions to strengthen his side even further well known, and Oxlade-Chamberlian would be a typical Guardiola signing, should he make a move for the talented Arsenal youngster.
Oxlade-Chamberlain in action for Arsenal
The Southampton academy graduate struggled for form last term and was desperately low on confidence. He seemed unsure of his place within the term, and his displays were affected by the lack of conviction in his attitude from the outset.
The 22-year-old's career hasn't developed in the way that most people had expected following his move to the Emirates as a teenager in 2011.
The Arsenal man is obviously still an incredibly talented player, with so much potential yet to reach, and Guardiola relishes the challenge of polishing a player into the diamond that he wants them to become.

On the face of it, it seems a transfer that could seem plausible, with one glaring obstacle - Arsenal's willingness to sell to a rival, or lack of it.
The Londoners have lost some of their best players in recent the years to cash-rich City, including Emmanuel Adebayor, Samir Nasri and Kolo Toure. With the Gunners in a far stronger position financially now, however, they have no need to sell for the sake of just money.
Another point to consider is the toxic atmosphere that still hangs over the Emirates after the fans turned on Arsene Wenger last term. Along with what, so far, has been a pretty unremarkable summer in the transfer window, the Arsenal fans as a whole seem to be close to tipping point with their French boss.
Selling another one of their stars to City could push them over the edge, so don't bank on it.
