The Daily Mail report that the Gunners made their final offer to Ox in a bid to secure his future.

Oxlade-Chamberlain is out of contract next summer and Arsenal face the prospect of losing him for nothing.

Chelsea have had a £25m bid for the England international rejected while Liverpool are also still keen.

Arsenal are still also yet to sign Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil to new contracts.

Sanchez is available for selection against Liverpool on Sunday after missing the first two Prem games due to an abdominal strain.

But boss Arsene Wenger has revealed his talisman is back in contention after returning to training last week along with defender Laurent Koscielny.

Wenger said: “Koscielny is back available for selection, Sanchez has worked very hard to be back again and is available as well.

“He works very hard, very focused, gives absolutely everything he loves so much to play. He looks ready.

“He has not played for a long time I will have to decide what to do with him but he is ready to play.

“We have to make that decision. We play on Sunday, overall he looks in good shape he has worked very hard.

Is Julian Draxler on his way to Arsenal from PSG?

“He has always been focussed on his job. He loves to play football he is not too much disturbed by the noise around him.

“He is one of those players not too bothered by that.

“He is focused and happy. The fact he goes into the last year of his contract doesn’t mean we have no chance to extend it, at the moment we haven’t managed to do that.”
