Arsenal Midfielder Oxlade-Chamberlain – a transfer target for Chelsea

Chelsea have joined the queue of Premier League clubs like Liverpool and Manchester United who are looking to add Arsenal Midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

After making 37 appearances for the Gunners this season, the England international is yet to be offered an extension to his contract at the Emirates.

The 23-year old, who moved to the London Outfit from Southampton in 2011, might be leaving the club in the summer if his contract is not extended before the transfer window.

 

Liverpool and Manchester United were rumored to be in pursuit of his signature in the winter and Chelsea have also indicated their interest to sign the Englishman.

Antonio Conte will expectedly want to fortify his squad in the summer against their run in the Champions League next season.

The Italian tactician is known for having preference for players who can play in different areas of the field and Oxlade-Chamberlain, who has been deployed to the flanks and also the midfield this season, might just be suitable for a move to Stamford Bridge.

The league leaders have also been targeting Crystal Palace winger but faces fierce opposition from Arsenal to sign the Ivorian in the summer.

Simultaneously, the Gunners might see the back of their star player Alexis Sanchez as he considers a move to Chelsea.

The Chilean forward is still stalling to pen a new contract with the Gunners and he’s reportedly hoping to convince Wenger to conduct business with the Blues this summer.
