The 18-year-old, who was a nominee for the PFA Young Player of the Year, was the favourite in our latest poll, with Manchester United veteran Paul Scholes coming in second
Roy Hodgson is set to announce the 23-man squad at 13:00 BST on Wednesday and the former Southampton man is our readers’ choice to travel to Poland and Ukraine with 41.49 per cent of the vote.
The 18-year-old joined the Gunners from Southampton last summer, for a fee rising to £15 million, from Southampton and has since gone on to make 16 Premier League appearances and four in the Champions League and was a nominee for the Professional Football Association Young Player of the Year.
The choice brings memories of a then 17-year-old Theo Walcott being picked for England’s World Cup 2006 squad by Sven-Goran Eriksson, the difference being that Oxlade-Chamberlain has top-flight experience and our readers believe he can make an impact.
Paul Scholes, who returned from retirement in January to boost Manchester United’s bid for a 20th Premier League title, was a relatively close second with 31.71%.

The 37-year-old, who retired from international football in 2004, revitalised the Red Devils in the title run-in, also making 16 appearances, and was a nominee for the Football Writers’ Association Player of the Year.
Norwich City striker Grant Holt polled third with 17.27% of the vote.
The 31-year-old scored 15 Premier League goals in his debut season in England’s top flight, the second-highest English goalscorer during the 2011-12 season, and has been touted by fans and some sections of the media as having a credible shout for inclusion in Hodgson’s squad.
The other three options were Liverpool's Joe Cole, currently on loan at Lille, who managed just 5.65% of votes.
Cole has not featured for England since the World Cup 2010 campaign, and has recently spoken of his hope of being one of Team GB’s three over-23 players in the summer Olympic Games.
Aside from those four, uncapped pair Swansea City striker Danny Graham and Canaries goalkeeper John Ruddy were chosen by just 1.95% of readers each.
