Sports Chelsea Makes £25m Bid for Chamberlain

Antonio Conte is desperate to strengthen his squad ahead of a Premier League title defence

"This Arsenal midfielder" is of course Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who's been one of the handful of names linked fairly often with Chelsea over the last couple weeks. However the reigning Premier League champions have stepped up their interest as they look to strengthen their squad ahead of the new season.

Oxlade-Chamberlain could soon be making the trip across London to play for the Premier League champions.

So with the Daily Star reporting that Chelsea have raised their transfer bid for the Oz from £25 million to £35 million and considering that he also has just a year of his current contract left, can Arsenal really afford to dig our heels in on this one?

With Oxlade-Chamberlain allowed to discuss terms with any club interested in him, in January, ahead of a move next summer, Arsenal may be forced into selling the England global this summer in order to avoid losing him for nothing.

"Personally, I think he is a hugely talented player".

Antonio Conte has vented his frustration at the lack of signings this summer, despite securing four players so far, as the Blues boss knows he needs a much stronger squad if Chelsea are to compete on all fronts.

The north London side have also signed Alexandre Lacazette in a club-record £52m deal from Ligue 1 side Lyon.

Since arriving at the Emirates stadium from Southampton in 2011, Oxlade-Chamberlain has failed to establish himself as a first team regular under Arsene Wenger, despite his potential.

Oxlade-Chamberlain scored six goals and made 11 assists in 27 starts and 18 substitute appearances in all competitions in the 2016-17 campaign.
