After moving to Arsenal, making his Champions League and Premier League bows and scoring his first international goals for the U21s, Oxlade-Chamberlain is now looking forward to another milestone - moving into his first pad.
He said: "I am about to move into my own place.
"I'm hoping my mum will come up once a week to do my washing.
"I'll handle living on my own. You've got to learn somehow. I'll take it all in my stride like I do everything else."
