Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will hold talks over his future at Arsenal later this week, Sky Sports News understands.
Sky sources have hinted the meeting, involving Oxlade-Chamberlain, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger and chief executive Ivan Gazidis, could take place on Thursday.
Wenger said last week that he hoped the England international forward would extend his current contract, which only has one year remaining on it.
Oxlade-Chamberlain is one of three key Arsenal players whose deals run out next summer.
Wenger said of that trio: "We always hope, even now, that we can extend the contracts of [Alexis] Sanchez, Chamberlain and [Mesut] Ozil.
"I rate him [Chamberlain] highly and he's one of the players who is on his way up. In the last year, he has made huge progress and I want him to stay here for a long time.
"I'm convinced he will be the English player that everybody will look at in the next two years."
Sky Sports News reported last month that Oxlade-Chamberlain was no nearer agreeing a new deal, making it more likely that he would leave the club this summer.
