Like Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain arrived at the Emirates Stadium via the famous Southampton academy that has produced stars such as Gareth Bale and Adam Lallana.
The 21-year-old is another who received his chance with the Saints at a very young age (16-years-old) and joined the Gunners for £12 million (rising to £15 million) in August 2011.
An incredibly versatile competitor, Oxlade-Chamberlain is able to feature as a left or right winger, a central attacking midfielder or even a deep-lying playmaker.
Stocky and competitive, Oxlade-Chamberlain boasts lightning pace which enables him to burst away from opponents. Many Arsenal fans are looking forward to where Arsène Wenger will continue to play the England international of 15 caps going forward.
