Chelsea rival Liverpool for unsettled Arsenal midfielder Oxlade-Chamberlain

Chelsea rival Liverpool for unsettled Arsenal midfielder Oxlade-Chamberlain

The England worldwide is reportedly growing increasingly frustrated at the lack of development and is said to be considering his next move.

With just one year remaining on the contract of England worldwide Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, talks were expected to advance easily on a new deal for the Arsenal star, but with no news since the end of the season, reports are now surfacing that the player is becoming frustrated with the lack of progress.

Even though the 23-year-old is not considered a priority for the Reds, but he would certainly provide a useful option in a variety of roles.

Arsenal star Oxlade-Chamberlain is one of Jurgen Klopp's widely reported targets ahead of the 2017-18 campaign, with concrete reports emerging since April that Klopp is a big admirer of the English global thanks to not only his blistering pace and abilities on the flank but also his fantastic versatility.

Talks on a new deal have stalled in recent days, with no official offer yet from Arsenal.

The Mirror reports that Sanchez is pushing for a move to Manchester City in order to reunite with manager Pep Guardiola, with Bayern Munich refusing to meet his wage demands.

It begs the question as to how Arsenal haven't already secured his long-term future, and they now risk losing him because of the delays in getting a deal over the line.

The England global played proved a vital cog in Arsenal's new 3-4-1-2 formation, his versatility allowing him to play at wing-back, central midfield and attacking midfield in the shape.

Oxlade-Chamberlain only has 12 months left on his current deal.

The player has been heavily linked with a £40million move to Liverpool and Manchester City this summer, but Sky Sports say Antonio Conte's side are now also considering a move for the 23-year-old.
