Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain would stay with the club next season.

There has been a lot of speculations over the future of the English international as he is yet to commit to a new deal at the club.

Key Player For Arsenal

The 23-year old has been an important player for Arsene Wenger as he can play in numerous positions across midfield and can also work as a wing back if needed.

Liverpool’s manager Jurgen Klopp is ready to make some massive signings for the club after losing out in pursuit of Southampton’s Virgil van Dijk and German club RB Leipzig’s Naby Keita. The Reds were considered favourites to sign the midfielder despite interest from both Manchester City and Chelsea.

The Englishman had moved to Arsenal from Southampton in 2011 and have become a firm favourite among fans in the recent years. Earlier reports suggested that the player was looking for a new club and Arsenal are believed to be holding out for a fee around £25 million to let Oxlade-Chamberlain leave.

Wenger Determined to keep his star

Despite having plenty of problems in getting his star players sign new contracts with the club, Wenger is determined to keep hold of the players. The likes of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez are also into their final year in their contracts and the club are desperate to tie them with a new deal.

Speaking after their 3-1 win over Western Sydney Wanderers on Saturday, Wenger has revealed that Oxlade Chamberlain will stay with the club.

He said: ‘Yes. 100%, I expect him to stay. No matter the speculation, he will stay.’

On the other hand, Liverpool is determined to strengthen his squad for the upcoming season as the club are set to play their first Champions League season under German. However, they might need to check out on other options as Oxlade-Chamberlain might just stick with Arsenal for the upcoming season.

The Englishman had expressed his concern over the playing position that he played at the end of last season and Wenger is ready to address the issue ahead of the new campaign. The Gunners will also play in Europa League which remains another drawback, having missed out on Champions League.
