Chelsea look to sign Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Chelsea look to sign Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain”

The Daily Star report that Chelsea's initial £25M bid was matched by Liverpool, and they have now increased it to £35M in hope of landing the England worldwide this summer.

"Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has a year left on his contract at Arsenal, they should be breaking the bank to bring that type of player to the club", Cunningham told RTE Sport.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is thought to be prepared to allow Oxlade-Chamberlain's contract run down, throwing up the possibility of the midfielder leaving on a free transfer next summer.

Oxlade-Chamberlain had a fantastic season for Arsenal past year, playing in a variety of positions, including right wing, central midfield, and even as a right wing back.

Arsenal are aware of Chelsea's interest and have rebuffed initial overtures.

The Daily Star note in their report that Oxlade-Chamberlain would welcome a move to Stamford Bridge, which comes as no surprise - who wouldn't?

Arsene Wenger has insisted he wants Oxlade-Chamberlain to stay, but if Arsenal can agree a new contract with the player or not remains to be seen.

The Blues have launched a £35m bid to get him, and Oxlade-Chamberlain is interested in making the move.

The fans' most pressing demand this summer was to augment an already light squad to provide Chelsea with additional options in their pursuit of glory on both the domestic and European stages.

"Personally, I think he is a hugely talented player", said Wenger. "He's had some small injuries but past year he was much more stable". He's today very conscious of his qualities as well, something he was not always.
