Chelsea launch £25m bid for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain: Arsenal aware of interest

Chelsea launch £25m bid for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain: Arsenal aware of interest”

Oxlade-Chamberlain would be capable of being used in a wing-back or advanced midfield role in the Chelsea team should Antonio Conte orchestrate a deal to sign the Arsenal star.

However the Daily Mail, who report the intensifying interest from Chelsea, claim that Arsenal have already rebuffed interest in Oxlade-Chamberlain that they've received so far.

Oxlade-Chamberlain, the Mail suggests, would slot in well into the west London outfit's 3-4-3 system.

Antonio Rudiger, Alvaro Morata, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Willy Caballero have all moved to Stamford Bridge but Conte is understood to want four more signings.

Conte reportedly feels Oxlade-Chamberlain would be a ideal option at wing-back, having featured in that position for Arsenal regularly since Arsene Wenger switched to a 3-5-2 formation.

The 23-year-old has less than 12 months to run on his contract, putting Arsenal in a precarious position.

- Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain started his professional career at Southampton where he scored 10 times in 43 appearances as a teenager to attract interest from Arsenal.

Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil are yet to sign on the dotted line to extend their current deals while Jack Wilshere, Santi Cazorla, Kieran Gibbs and Carl Jenkinson could all be looking to move elsewhere in a year's time.
