Highly rated fitness expert Darren Burgess is set to join Arsenal from AFL team Port Adelaide.

Burgess, who previously worked as Liverpool's head of conditioning, was "handpicked" by Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, according to the South Australian Aussie rules side.

Such is the esteem in which Port hold Burgess, he will be allowed by the Gunners to continue working with the AFL franchise throughout the coming months, including the planning and implementation of the next pre-season, as well as "daily remote consultation" with the remaining backroom staff.

Arsenal ready to sell Liverpool target Chamberlain

  Arsenal ready to sell Liverpool target Chamberlain Liverpool have been reportedly chasing Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for a number of months now but they have received a boost in their pursuit of the Arsenal winger. According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal are now ready to offload the England international this summer in a bid to trim their wage bill. With the Premier League introducing new cost control measures, Arsenal are keen to shrink their expenditure on player wages and Oxlade-Chamberlain is one of the most likely candidates to face the axe. The two parties had been in talks over a new contract at the Emirates but there’s been no positive movement on this ground for some time. With his deal up next summer, the Gunners are now ready to cash-in on the versatile midfielder, with Liverpool ready to make their move. It’s believed that Liverpool are likely to sign the winger in a £25m deal this summer, fending off interest from Chelsea.

"The opportunity to return to the English Premier League and work at one of the world's most successful sporting organisations in Arsenal is an opportunity I simply couldn't refuse," he said in a statement on the Port website.

It remains to be seen if the influence of Burgess, who worked with Australia at the World Cup in 2010, can help Wenger keep his key players fit and in peak condition as they seek to return to the Premier League's top four, having missed out on Champions League qualification by finishing fifth last season.

The Frenchman is likely to remain under heavy pressure to deliver, despite having agreed a new two-year contract at Emirates Stadium amid calls from some supporters for the 67-year-old to step down.

Liverpool make official approach for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain .
Liverpool have made an official enquiry to Arsenal as they look to agree a deal to sign England international Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. As reported in a joint piece from Mirror journalists John Cross and David Maddock, the Reds have contacted Arsenal about the availability of the 23-year-old and although the Gunners knocked back the request, there is a growing feeling around the Emirates that the utility man could be sold. Oxlade-Chamberlain’s contract is set to expire next summer and whilst his representatives have held talks with the club, a deal is yet to be done and there is a very good chance that Arsenal could sell the player this summer rather than lose him for free in 12 months time. Arsenal have allowed Chamberlain to get to within one year of his contract expiring and they’ve done the same with both Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez, meaning they have a lot to work to do to contract-wise this summer. Liverpool will hope that the pressure the Gunners have put themselves under could result in Oxlade-Chamberlain being sold and they’ll be at the front of the queue to get him.
