Cape Town - Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain hopes that Kylian Mbappe or Alexandre Lacazette will be joining him at the club next season.

Oxlade-Chamberlain is expected to feature for England when they take on France at Stade de France on Tuesday, when the mercurial French duo will look set to take centre stage against Gareth Southgate's side.

Both Monaco forward Mbappe and Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette have been linked with the Gunners in recent months, as Arsene Wenger searches for a proven goalscorer to take his side to the upper echelons of European football.

Nonetheless, 'Ox' would like to see either talent in north London next season representing the Gunners.

"Anyone would want them in their team," the England international told Standard Sport. "First and foremost, Mbappe has been a phenomenal revelation this season at such a young age.

"It is hard not to watch him closely. He is scoring so many goals and every week, it's in your face!

"I have been monitoring him and he really is a quality player. I feel the same about Lacazette. I have seen him for a good few years now and he is always scoring goals."
