Arsenal sign Oxlade-Chamberlain, Lucas Biglia's agent confirms England interest

Arsenal Fc has completed the signing of Southampton's wonder-kid Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for an undisclosed fee.

The versatile 17-year-old, joins Arsenal from Championship side Southampton, where he made 44 first-team appearances during his long association with the south coast club. The much anticipated move was finally formalised by the North London outfit, a few hours ago. However, the new kid will learn more about his enormous responsibilities - hopefully our new attacker will live up to our lofty expectations.

Meanwhile, Lucas Biglia's agent Enzo Montepaone, spoke exclusively to TMW earlier today. Enzo claimed his client's preferred destination is Milan but admitted that there was and still interest from England for the 25-year-old Argentina international: "We've held discussions with Milan and talked about it several times. He (Lucas) is a player who actually likes them, but at the moment there is no offer, because the Rossoneri are yet to decide whether to sign a player of his position (midfielder).

Other interests? Yes, there is interest from England, but the clubs who follow him must first settle some situations with respect to financial issues."
