Oxlade-Chamberlain has scored 20 goals in 196 appearances for the Gunners since his debut back in 2011 but the 24-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Stamford Bridge in recent months.

The England winger is in the final year of his contract at the Emirates, and is yet to sign a new contract, but looks set to extend his stay in north London following Arsenal’s latest offer.

According to the Daily Star, Arsenal have now offered Oxlade-Chamberlain a four-year deal worth £125,000-a-week to keep Chelsea at bay this summer.
