Arsenal whizkid Oxlade-Chamberlain eager to gauge Asian popularity

Arsenal winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is eager to gauge the popularity of the club in the Far East.

The 18-year-old is thoroughly looking forward to meeting Arsenal's passionate supporters in the region.

"When I first came to Arsenal [the popularity of the Club] was one of the most surprising things for me," Oxlade-Chamberlain told Arsenal Player.

"You have people from Malaysia, South Africa, America and Australia all supporting Arsenal and it makes you realise how big a club this is.

"It's amazing to think of fans on the other side of the world supporting the Club so much. It will be really nice to go out there and connect with them.

"I've heard about last year's trip and I've been told the fans are so enthusiastic and really love the Club and the players. They give a lot to the Club and to the players, so it is nice to give something back to them."
