Chelsea agree fee with Arsenal for Oxlade-Chamberlain

Chelsea agree fee with Arsenal for Oxlade-Chamberlain

Two days after being part of an appalling Arsenal team which lost 4-0 to Liverpool at Anfield, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is set to move to arch rivals Chelsea for a fee reported by BBC Sport as £40 million.

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.

Oxlade-Chamberlain, who has entered the final 12 months of his contract, was offered improved terms to commit his future to Arsenal but made clear that his preference was to seek a new challenge.

Oxlade-Chamberlain was expected to leave the club after the midfielder made it clear he was not going to sign a new deal with the club, and with Arsenal facing the prospect of having to let go Sanchez and Mesut Ozil also on free transfers at the end of this season, it looks like the club have chose to cash-in on the England worldwide. At Chelsea, he might have to compete with Victor Moses for a go at right wing-back.

However, Chelsea fans have begun digging up Oxlade-Chamberlain's tweets from way back in 2012, suggesting that Conte's target has 'always been a Blue'.




"I want to keep my best players. And can he really be guaranteed a starting place above those players?"

And Pearce feels Oxlade-Chamberlain should jump at the chance to leave the Emirates so he can kickstart his career with a new challenge.

According to the Times on Tuesday, Liverpool are still very much in the race to sign the Arsenal star.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has scored 20 times in 197 appearances for Arsenal since his 2011 move from Southampton.

"It makes him an attractive proposition because he can move positions", he added.
