Chelsea back in for Oxlade-Chamberlain

Chelsea have upped their interest in signing Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

However, the Reds have, so far, not quite made a concrete bid, and Chelsea are looking to take advantage of that situation by going in for the Arsenal player.

Aside from Mesut Özil and Alexis Sanchez, one player whose future is surrounded in unknowns is Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is expecting Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to stay this season.

Arsenal have tried to tie Oxlade-Chamberlain down to a new contract, but so far, the player's representative has rejected all the offers.

Arsenal are aware of Chelsea's interest and have rebuffed initial overtures.

In addition to this is the fact that the 23-year-old has seen game time in the wing back position, which makes him a ideal fit for Conte's charges, who employed a back three liberally last season.

And now the Daily Mail claim the Premier League champions have stepped up their in Oxlade-Chamberlain, launching an opening bid of £25m.

The Daily Star note in their report that Oxlade-Chamberlain would welcome a move to Stamford Bridge, which comes as no surprise - who wouldn't?

The fans' most pressing demand this summer was to augment an already light squad to provide Chelsea with additional options in their pursuit of glory on both the domestic and European stages.

"I think in his career he had some bad moments because he had some small injuries", he told reporters. "He's had some small injuries but past year he was much more stable".

"He'll continue to move up because the potential is there". I personally think he's a hugely talented player and he's on the way up. Today he is conscious of his qualities.
