Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has revealed that he intends to seek advice from Arsenal legend Thierry Henry about how to improve his goalscoring threat at club level.

The 22-year-old has never scored an away goal in a competitive match for the Gunners as all 13 of his strikes have come at the Emirates.

At international level, Oxlade-Chamberlain has netted five times for England, his latest coming in the Three Lions' 3-0 win over Lithuania in their final Euro 2016 qualifier on Monday.

"I might have to have a few words with Thierry," The Mirror quotes Oxlade-Chamberlain as saying.

"I think there's no better man to advise you on how to get a goal here or there. "My goals record is definitely something I think of. It's something, as an attacking player, you have to be aware of.

You can't force it too much because you start to do the wrong things on the pitch if you try to force shots that are not on but it is definitely something I think about and work on."

Henry has a coaching role with Arsenal's Under-18s.
