England winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is in talks to renew his contract with Arsenal, according to The Telegraph.

The 23-year-old, whose current deal expires in the summer of 2018, is one of a number of Gunners stars being lined up for extensions.

Others include Santi Cazorla, Olivier Giroud and Jack Wilshere, the latter of whom is out on loan at Bournemouth for the remainder of the season.

However, manager Arsene Wenger revealed concerns over Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez, whose contracts are also due to expire in 18 months.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has made a bright start to the campaign after missing the back end of last term with a knee injury that also ruled him out of England’s Euro 2016 squad.

The former Southampton youngster has started to become a more regular fixture in the starting XI and his six goals in 20 appearances already make this his most productive goalscoring season in an Arsenal shirt to date.

When you add to that a further five assists, it seems that the former prodigy may finally be close to fulfilling the potential that convinced Wenger to sign him as a 17-year-old.
