Oxlade-Chamberlain remains unlikely to sign a new contract at Arsenal ahead of further talks this week about his future.

Arsenal are already understood to have made an offer in excess of £100,000-a-week but, amid interest from Chelsea and Liverpool, Oxlade-Chamberlain does not feel under pressure to make an immediate decision.

Although he has been starting Premier League matches more regularly in recent months than at any stage in his Arsenal career, opportunities in his preferred central midfield role remain limited.

Chelsea or Liverpool may yet launch serious bids before the transfer window closes next Thursday but, even if Arsene Wenger does stick to his plan of refusing to sell, Oxlade-Chamberlain would still be in a position of considerable strength when his contract expires next summer 

Football fans in Nigeria witnessed an incredible afternoon last Sunday, when Guinness Made of Black ambassador Thierry Henry, visited Nigeria to celebrate the unique passion for football among fans in the country.
