Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
Chelsea are determined to lure Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain away from the club, as per the Telegraph.
Antonio Conte has made no bones of wish to further improve his squad play before the closure of the transfer window and it seem like the Blues has set his eyes on three English talents.
Oxlade-Chamberlain’s future at Arsenal is hanging in doubt as he has entered into the final year of his deal with the club and there has so far been no indication of a new deal coming forth despite the North Londoners’ best efforts.
The Telegraph claim the 23-year-old will have a talk with Arsene Wenger today where Chelsea hope he will inform the Arsenal boss of his desire to move to the Stamford Bridge after the Blues submitted an improved £35m bid.
Wenger has always insisted that Oxlade-Chamberlain will not be leaving the Emirates this summer and reiterated his stance this morning but that his resolve will be severely tested if the midfielder insists on not signing a new deal and wants to join Chelsea instead.
The England international is versatile, capable of playing at wing-back, central midfield or on the wing, so his skills will be a huge asset to Chelsea if they are able to lure him away from Arsenal before the end of the month.
