Chelsea Bid £35m For Arsenal's Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Oxlade-Chamberlain could end up as a team-mate of Cesc Fabregas at Chelsea this season

Arsene Wenger has today insisted he wants the Ox to stay at Arsenal, claiming he can become a "very great player".

The twenty-three year old is entering the final year of his current deal with the Gunners, who are yet to offer him an extension that meets his vast wage demands.

With Wenger still not quite convinced of his ability in midfield, Oxlade-Chamberlain has become a bit of a utility player for Arsenal, with the England global impressing of late in a wing-back position, be that down the right or the left.

Chelsea have been encouraged by his contract situation at Arsenal and are ready for a £25m swoop.

Having seen a £25 million offer turned down by Arsenal, Chelsea have come in with a £35 million bid, according to the Daily Star and the Daily Mirror.

Antonio Conte has vented his frustration at the lack of signings this summer, despite securing four players so far, as the Blues boss knows he needs a much stronger squad if Chelsea are to compete on all fronts.

This is according to the Daily Mail, who claim that the the Gunners had rejected Chelsea's initial advances for the England global.

"I think in his career he had some bad moments because he had some small injuries", he told reporters.

When Arsenal fans were forced to accept after last season's disappointing Premier League campaign, which saw us miss out on the Champions League for the first time in many years, that the long serving manager Arsene Wenger would not be replaced as many of us hoped, it was with the proviso that things would change.

As per the Daily Star, Conte is a huge admirer of Oxlade-Chamberlain, and has highlighted him to the Chelsea board as a player he would like them to sign before the end of the transfer window. He is on the way up and he will continue to move up because that potential is there.
