Arsenal boss Wenger tells Chelsea target Ox: You have responsibility to stay

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is adamant he doesn't want to lose Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Chelsea and Liverpool are keen on signing Oxlade-Chamberlain with the midfielder due to hold talks today with Wenger and chief executive Ivan Gazidis over his future.

Wenger reiterated his desire to keep the 24-year-old, who has so far proved unwilling to extend his contract which has less than 12 months left to run, and ramped up the rhetoric on the importance of committing his future to Arsenal.

“I think we invested a lot of time, confidence and money on players like Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who we bought at a young age," said Wenger today.

“For me, they have a responsibility for the future of this club because Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will be one of the big English players in the coming years. I personally am highly determined to keep him here at the club and I hope he will commit."
