Oxlade-Chamberlain to be offered new Arsenal contract

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is to be offered a new contract at Arsenal after an impressive debut season, the Daily Telegraph has reported.

The newspaper adds that Oxlade-Chamberlain is one of the lowest paid players in the Arsenal first team, earning £25,000 per week, but with Theo Walcott and Robin van Persie both due for talks over extending and improving their contracts this summer, Oxlade-Chamberlain can also expect to be offered increased terms once the season is over. The Telegraph says Oxlade-Chamberlain is likely to double his salary.

Oxlade-Chamberlain was signed from Southampton in summer 2011 in a deal reported to be worth £12m, potentially rising to £15m. The 18-year-old had only ever played in League One before joining Arsenal, but in 20 combined appearances in the Carling Cup, FA Cup, Premier League and Champions League, has begun to establish himself in the Gunners first team, scoring on his Champions League debut in a 2-1 win over Greek side Olympiakos.
