Official – The ‘Ox’ Agrees New 4-Year Deal

Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.

Arsenal are reportedly confident of convincing Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to commit his future to the club by signing a new long-term deal. The England international is in the final year of his current deal, but the Gunners are confident of fending any transfer interest in his services.

Oxlade-Chamberlain, 24, has played nearly 200 games for the Gunners since arriving as a 17-year-old from Southampton back in the summer of 2011.

However, all through the period, he has struggled to grace the pitch regularly, and it was only towards the end of the previous season that the manager decided to reward him with more playing time.

According to The Star, the Gunners have offered a fresh four-year deal worth £125,000-a-week to the Ox as they seek to end interest from the likes of Chelsea in the transfer window.

It is added that the FA Cup holders are confident that the new wing-back will pen a new long-term contract despite considering a switch across London earlier in the month.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has started all three games for the Gunners this term including the Community Shield, and it appears that his situation could be at wing-back, although Granit Xhaka has been poor of late in the central park.
