Chelsea have joined the race to sign Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, according to the Mirror.
Chamberlain’s contract expires at the end of next season but talks to renew his contract are yet to begin. This has led to reports linking him with a move to rival clubs, with Manchester City, Liverpool and now Chelsea keeping tabs on his situation.
