Arsenal legend Parlour says Oxlade-Chamberlain needs guarantees to stay

A report claims that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain considers his future at Arsenal after becoming "deeply frustrated" with the club's lack of movement over a new contract.

Now it's completely up to him whether he moves to Chelsea, Liverpool or Manchester City.

Oxlade-Chamberlain made 45 appearances for the Gunners this season, but the majority of those came from the substitutes bench.

The Ox is waiting for a new contract offer from the Gunners, but he also wants a regular place in the starting line-up. Arsenal are said to have placed a £25m price tag on his head.

The England worldwide did impress in a right-wing back role towards the end of the campaign but recent reports state he has grown frustrated with the way Arsenal have handled negotiations and is considering joining Liverpool. Chelsea, of course, play with wing-backs under Conte.

Ray Parlour hopes Arsene Wenger convinces Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to stay at Arsenal.

But there could be no shortage of potential suitors this summer, with several of the Premier League and Europe's elite sides reportedly having been alerted to his contract situation. I'm sure Arsenal will be sitting down with his agent, trying to sign him up. The Reds are thought to be slightly more interested than the competition, and a move to Anfield would possibly see the winger find more playing time.

However, almost a month after the end of the season, formal talks are yet to commence. Therefore, something's gotta give before the window shuts.
