Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is ready to snub interest from Liverpool to sign a new deal with Arsenal and commit his future to the Gunners.
The Mirror report that the 23-year-old is already in talks with Arsenal over a new £100,000-a-week contract and the club are confident he will stay.
Arsene Wenger has recently revealed how crucial he feels it is that Oxlade-Chamberlain stays and has said he wants him to remain at the club for another 10 years.
Jurgen Klopp has reportedly been interested in bringing him to Anfield but it now looks as though he will miss out on one of his summer targets.
At the start of the season Oxlade-Chamberlain admitted he could be tempted to move away from Arsenal if he were not playing regularly.
Whilst he was more frequently out of the team than in it at the start of the campaign, he became an increasingly important figure as the season progressed and showed his versatility.

Wenger’s switch to a back three, saw Oxlade-Chamberlain feature regularly in a right wing-back role although he even featured on the left in the FA Cup final win.
Although his preferred position is central midfield he has played in a variety of roles this season which has also highlighted his importance to the squad.
While Oxlade-Chamberlain has perhaps not had quite the impact at Arsenal that many had hoped, his form in the second half of the season suggests there is more to come.
Arsenal will be hoping that if he does pledge his future to the club he can kick on and prove he is worth his new £100,000-a-week deal.
