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 

November 11 has been named as the date for Anthony Joshua vs Wladimir Klitschko rematch in Las Vegas.

Promoter Eddie Hearn has applied successfully to stage the mega-bucks fight in Nevada.The new hi-tech T-Mobile Arena has been reserved provisionally under the auspices of the MGM Grand group, which is helping bankroll the eight-figure purses for the two fighters with a massive site fee.

That translates into virtual confirmation that the second edition of the epic battle between Joshua and the iconic former world champion Klitschko is on. 

FC Barcelona and Leo Messi have agreed on a contract renewal that will keep the Argentinian at the Club until June 30th, 2021.

The deal will be signed in the coming weeks, when Messi returns to the team for pre-season training.

 In a statement, Barca said Messi has "led the team to an era of extraordinary success, the likes of which has never been seen in world football".

"Leo Messi will not stop there - the Argentinian is in one of the best moments of his career and still has a lot more left to give, which is music to the ears of all Barca fans who will get to continue marvelling at his greatness for at least another four years," the statement added.

Barcelona superstar Neymar has never been scared of splashing the cash but the Brazilian took his spending to a whole other level on Complex magazine's Sneaker Shopping series.

Neymar was invited onto the show to discuss his career, his love of fashion and most importantly his penchant for limited edition sneakers

Neymar also revealed he and Barcelona team-mate Lionel Messi have a personal rivalry when it comes to each other's footwear on the pitch.

'Not with trainers, but with boots - when they're ugly we play around, have a joke,' he said.

After finishing his interview, Neymar took the time to browse the world-famous Flight Club shoe shop in Los Angeles before racking up a whopping $18,623 (£14,242) bill - a new record for the Sneaker Shopping series.
