According to report, Arsenal have been dealt a huge blow in their quest to keep one of their star attackers….
A report by Goal claims Oxlade-Chamberlain want a pay rise that will now see him earn £100,000 a week and will put him on the same wage as Hector Bellerin.
Oxlade-Chamberlain has struggled to nail down a regular starting position in the Arsenal first team this season and his future has come under speculation with 18 months of his deal remaining.
Chamberlain has been linked with a move to Liverpool, but Klopp had yesterday, quelled any possible interest for the attacker.
According to the report, the winger is aware of Bellerin’s wage and he wants to be offered a similar deal, increasing his current earnings by an extra £35,000 a week.
Arsene Wenger faces a battle to agree deals with a number of top Arsenal stars including Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez, Laurent Koscielny, Olivier Giroud and Santi Cazorla.
Oxlade-Chamberlain, 23, has struggled to gain a place ahead of Theo Walcott this season and he faces further competition from Alex Iwobi and Lucas Perez.
If he fails to agree a considerably improved contract, it is likely Oxlade-Chamberlain may opt for a move away from Arsenal in an attempt to seek out regular first team football.
