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.
Arsene Wenger has so far failed to find a solution to the contractual situation of key players Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez whose contract both have one year left before it expires.
The Arsenal manager’s worries are compounded with the contract issue of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, with the Ox yet to sign an extension.
Liverpool have been rumored with an interest for the England international who had a renewed form during the 2016-17 season.
And according to Sky Sports, Oxlade-Chamberlain is closer to securing a move away from Arsenal after talks about his new contract fell through.
The report claimed that sources close to the player are suggesting there are no plans for a new contract at the moment.
Oxlade-Chamberlain, whose current wage is around $84,000-per-week (£65,000), was used in the latter stages of the previous season as an alternative to Hector Bellerin in the right-wing back position.
