Arsenal youngster Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain says that he is happy to help fill the void in midfield after Alex Song's departure if given the chance this season.

England international Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has admitted that he would love the chance to nail down a place in the centre of Arsenal's midfield this season.

Chamberlain caught the eye in that role last season in a Champions League match against AC Milan, and believes that he can help to cushion the blow of Alex Song's departure to Barcelona.

He said: "Alex Song was a great player for us and he was a big player, but we've got a strong enough squad. I'm definitely confident of that and I'm definitely confident of filling Alex's role.

"Arsene Wenger has been pushing more this season to try my hand in a more central position.

"If I can prove I can play in that position as well then that will help me and my career at Arsenal"

The 19-year-old has been named in Arsenal's squad to play Stoke City on Sunday, August 26.
