Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has revealed that he is watching Dani Alves as the Arsenal star looks to improve in his new wing-back role.

The Arsenal midfielder has been utilised on the right side of Arsene Wenger’s 3-4-3 formation to help the Gunners win their final five games of the Premier League season.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has made five assists in his last seven games in all competitions to help Arsene Wenger’s side end the season on a positive note.

The England international has been linked with a move to Premier League rivals Liverpool ahead of the 2016 summer transfer window.

Speaking to Sky Sports about his new role in the Arsenal team, Oxlade-Chamberlain revealed that he has been watching one of the best right-backs in Europe.

Oxlade-Chamberlain said: “When I’ve watched Dani Alves recently, he might not play the five at the back, but the way he plays, he marches on and he adds a lot in an attacking sense as well as defensively.

“Players like that, you watch and you learn from them.”
