Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is yet to sign a new deal with Arsenal as he approaches the final year of his contract.
The Gunners are running out of time to convince the 24-year-old to commit his future to the club, leaving them with the dilemma of whether to cash in on him now to avoid losing him for nothing next summer.
The Daily Mail report that the England international is looking increasingly unlikely to extend because he is keen to become a regular in Gareth Southgate’s side ahead of the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Arsenal have put £180,000 per week on the table in the hope of warding off Chelsea, who have already made one bid of £25million.
The former Southampton winger is not valued as highly as Alexis Sanchez or Mesut Ozil, but losing him would still be disappointing for Arsene Wenger especially as he has very little time to find a replacement and has been thwarted in his attempts to sign Thomas Lemar from Monaco.
On the whole, Oxlade-Chamberlain’s time in north London has been inconsistent, but he has started to look like the player Arsenal fans have always been promised.
