Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s future remains unresolved as he enters the final year of his contract at Arsenal.

Talks over a new deal have stalled, with the Gunners concentrating their efforts on sealing the club-record signing of Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette, as well as prioritising contract discussions with Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has been heavily linked with a £25m move to Liverpool as a result, with Jurgen Klopp keen to seize on the uncertainty regarding his future as he seeks assurances over regular first-team football.

Liverpool are reportedly hoping to sign him for a knockdown fee due to his contractual stand-off, but the Arsenal midfielder’s latest social media activity suggests he is focusing solely on pre-season with the Gunners.

The 23-year-old returned to the club’s London Colney training base on Monday along with a host of other first-team players ahead of flying to Australia for the first leg of their pre-season tour.

And Oxlade-Chamberlain showed supporters his commitment to getting fit and enjoying a successful summer as he tries to build on the impressive form which saw him nail down a first-team role in a new right wing-back role at the back end of 2016/17.

The midfielder uploaded an image to his Instagram Story with the caption ‘pre season pending’ as he took a snap of his workout in the club’s gym.

He is expected to be joined on the Gunners’ flight to Sydney by prospective new signing Lacazette, with a confirmation on a £53m transfer due imminently.

The Lyon striker completed his medical at London Colney on Thursday.
