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.
According to reports in the Daily Mirror, Chelsea have joined the queue of clubs wanting to sign 23-year-old Arsenal and England midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain this summer.
The west London club is well aware of the fact that Oxlade-Chamberlain’s contract with the Gunners has just one year left before it expires, and that their neighbours from the capital are yet to hold him down to a new deal.
According to Sky Sports, the 23-year-old is frustrated at the inconsistent playing time he gets since he moved to the Emirates from Southampton in 2011.
There is no doubt that if the 23-year-old decides to move out of Arsenal then for a new lease on life and for more playing time in the first team.
If Conte cannot assure Chamberlain of a spot in the first team, then he would probably not move to the Stamford Bridge except he really wants to stay in London.
Considering playing time, a move to Liverpool would seem the best option with doubts over whether he would be chosen ahead of the likes of Raheem Sterling, Bernardo Silva and Leroy Sane under Pep Guardiola.
