Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could be the biggest name to exit the club this summer, according to Sky Sports News.
Whilst everyone sweats over the likes of Ozil and Alexis staying, many forget about the influence The Ox has had on the team over the second half of last season.
Following an impressive run of form and return to the England squad, the 23-year-old has attracted interest from the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City.
And whilst nine out of ten reports say The Ox will repay the faith that was shown to him in his early days, Sky Sports have been told of a very different scenario.
Arsenal want to keep Oxlade-Chamberlain but we’re told “chances of him signing new deal are virtually nil”. No new talks planned at present

Sky Sports go on to state that it’s increasingly likely that he will force a move away from the Emirates this summer as he goes in search of a regular spot in central midfield.
Wenger has always used the Englishman as a winger-type player and has talked about moving him into a central role in a few years time once he’s matured.
But it looks as if The Ox feels he’s ready to make the change now having played a key role during England’s World Cup qualifiers and friendly matches recently.
Arsenal are desperate to keep hold of the former Southampton man as they want to shift on a whole host of first team players in the next few weeks.
Lucas Perez, Wojciech Szczesny, Carl Jenkinson and Mathieu Debuchy have all been left out of the tour to Australia as they prepare to sort out their future.
Oxlade-Chamberlain IS with the team Down Under and it’s likely his agent may have leaked something to the press in an attempt to get more money in an extension at Arsenal.
