Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain didn’t look like a man keen to leave the Gunners for Liverpool this summer, as he helped Arsenal to a 2-0 win over Sydney FC at the ANZ Stadium.

The 23-year-old, who is believed to have rejected a contract extension at Arsenal, impressed after coming off the bench in the 68th minute, to the delight of the supporters.

Many Arsenal fans are desperate for the club to retain his services and his industrious performances are exactly why.

It wasn’t just fans on social media making noise about their desire to keep the Ox either…

It was intimated during Arsenal.com’s commentary that the midfielder had been working hard in pre-season and looked like a player ready to shine for the Gunners, rather than looking to leave for a new club, which suggests Arsenal could yet rectify the situation.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has 12 months left on his current deal at the Emirates and is a £25m transfer target for Liverpool. However, Arsene Wenger has made his stance clear by including the 23-year-old on the pre-season tour so it’s unlikely he’ll be granted a move this summer – nor is he playing like he wants one.
