Southampton whizkid Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain hopes to impress Premier League clubs today against Leeds United.

Southampton whizkid Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain hopes to impress Premier League clubs today against Leeds United.

The Daily Star says the 17-year-old winger has been linked with ­Arsenal throughout the summer, although Arsene Wenger is not prepared to meet a £10m asking price.

Liverpool have also shown an interest and Chamberlain wants to prove he has recovered from the ankle problem that also hampered him last season when Saints won promotion.

Saints boss Nigel Adkins is reluctant to discuss Chamberlain’s future, but hinted he should be ready for a place in today’s ­starting line-up.

After training, Adkins said: “We will keep that one close to our chests, but it’s safe to say that he was out running with the rest of the players.”
