Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is on the brink of joining Premier League champions Chelsea.

Oxlade-Chamberlain, 24, will be out of contract next summer and has refused to sign a new deal at Emirates Stadium.

Chelsea have declined to comment but it is understood they have agreed a transfer fee with their London rivals for the England international.

Liverpool have also shown an interest and could still make an offer for the former Southampton player.

Venus Williams

Two-time champion Venus Williams was pushed all the way by world number 135 Viktoria Kuzmova before reaching the second round of the US Open.

The 37-year-old American took her second match point on teenager Kuzmova's serve to win 6-3 3-6 6-2.

Williams has seven Grand Slam singles titles, while Kuzmova was making her main-draw debut at tour level.

Meantime, two-time finalist Caroline Wozniacki beat Mihaela Buzarnescu 6-1 7-5 to reach round two.

Manchester City have smashed the Ghanaian transfer record with their US$ 2m offer for talented WAFA kid Aminu Mohammed.

Striker Emmanuel Clottey held that record after Tunisian giants Esperance paid US$ 1.5 million for the then Berekum Chelsea player in 2012.

Mohammed, 16, has immense dribbling skills and scoring abilities and has been likened to Brazil superstar Neymar.

Cristiano Ronaldo was named UEFA Player of the Season for 2016-2017 on Thursday after a campaign which saw the Portuguese superstar help Real Madrid to the La Liga and Champions League double.

It was the third time that Ronaldo had won the award which was presented on the sidelines of the Champions League group stage draw.

His great rival Lionel Messi has won the prize on two occasions and could pave the way for him to capture a fifth Ballon d’Or title. “There are the same goals every year, to meet the same challenges, win everything if possible, qualify for the World Cup with my national team,” said Ronaldo.

Conor McGregor's first words at his post-fight news conference announced he was at the lectern with his own branded whiskey.

It was another sell at the end of arguably the greatest sell in boxing history.

Former five-weight world champion Floyd Mayweather stopped the Irish UFC fighter, who was making his boxing debut, in the 10th round after one of the most hyped fights of all time.

Beforehand, the media pored over every word - racist, homophobic or otherwise. Boxing purists despaired, while the MMA community dreamed their relatively young sport would topple the more established form of combat.

The 2017/18 UEFA Champions League group stage draw has been made, with highlights including Bayern v Paris, Chelsea v Atlético, Juventus v Barcelona and Real Madrid v Dortmund.

Great Britain's Mo Farah won a thrilling 5,000m in the final track race of his career at the Diamond League event in Zurich. The 34-year-old, who has four Olympic titles, will concentrate on road races.

Chased down in the final 100 metres by Ethiopia's new world champion Muktar Edris, Farah won narrowly in a time of 13 minutes 06.05 seconds.

American Paul Chelimo was second as Edris, Farah's conqueror at London 2017, fell diving for the line.
