Arsenal’s Oxlade-Chamberlain Set To Join Chelsea
Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is close to joining Premier League champions Chelsea for £40m.
The England player, 24, will be out of contract next summer and has refused to sign a new deal at Emirates Stadium.
Oxlade-Chamberlain is yet to decide if he wants to join Chelsea or Liverpool, but as things stand the only firm offer Arsenal have received is from Chelsea.
Arsenal want a deal for the former Southampton midfielder completed as quickly as possible.
Oxlade-Chamberlain has started every game for the Gunners so far this season, including Sunday’s 4-0 defeat at Liverpool, when he was substituted.
The midfielder would be Chelsea’s fifth major signing of the summer following the arrivals of striker Alvaro Morata, goalkeeper Willy Caballero, defender Antonio Rudiger and midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko.
