Chelsea are preparing a £25m bid for Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain, according to reports.
Antonio Conte is reportedly keen on more reinforcements at Chelsea and has set his sights on Chamberlain.
The England international has one year left on his contract and has refused to sign a new deal, insisting he wants to move to a club that would afford him more game time to harness his potential.
And according to the Express via the Daily Star, Chelsea are prepared to offer him that opportunity.
The report claims Antonio Conte wants to make Chamberlain a world class wing back and is lining up a £25m bid to take him to Stamford Bridge.
However, Wenger doesn’t intend to sell and is expected to rebuff the Blues attempt to sign the midfielder. Last month, Wenger revealed that Chamberlain will stay at Arsenal no matter the speculation and he isn’t expected to change is mind especially now that Chelsea are looking to sign the 23 year old.
Arsenal are in a difficult position because not just Chamberlain, a number of our first team stars are in the final year of their contracts and they are reluctant to extend their contracts.
We can’t afford to lose them all for nothing next summer, meaning the club may have to allow some of them leave, leaving Chelsea with a small possibility of signing Chamberlain.
