Chamberlain's future at Arsenal in doubt

However, Oxlade-Chamberlain has grown increasingly frustrated at the lack of progress and is now on holiday considering his next move.

Chelsea have joined Premier League rivals Liverpool and Manchester City in expressing interest in Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, reports say.

The Premier League champions want to take advantage of the fact the England global is yet to agree an extension on his contract with the Gunners which expires in 2018.

Can Arsene Wenger convince Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to stay at Arsenal?

The Reds boss is also gearing-up for a busy summer as Liverpool prepare for their return to the Champions League and Oxlade-Chamberlain is among the German coaches prime targets.

Ward stuns Kovalev in eighth to defend titles
The fight seemed to be going the way of Ward , the superior athlete, the better conditioned athlete, the unflappable presence. Regardless of the Kovalev camp trying to stir a controversy over the borderline shots, Ward was the deserved victor .

The Gunners have a number of players entering the final year of their contracts, and Wenger admitted he's keen to tie them all down to new deals.

The Gunners star is locked in talks with the club over an extension to his Emirates Stadium contract, which now has just 12 months left to run. The 23-year-old midfielder, who can also play as a winger or a wing-back, is now on vacation and he feels that he needs to move away from Arsenal to get more first-team opportunities.

The player now seems set to bring stalling talks over a new deal at Arsenal to a halt and instead look to continue his career elsewhere in the hope of finally producing his top form on a regular basis.

Liverpool were already vying for the former Southampton man's signature this summer as early as January (Guardian), with Antonio Conte's side now joining in the race, according to Sky Sports.
