Reports from the Standard claims Chelsea are edging closer to securing a move from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlin this summer.

The report claims the current Premier League Champions Chelsea are preparing a £35m bid for OX who is now in his final year of his contract.

However, Standard Sport understands no fee has yet been agreed but negotiations between the two clubs are ongoing and the Blues have received sufficient encouragement to believe a transfer is possible.

Liverpool and Manchester City are thought to retain an interest in Oxlade-Chamberlain but Antonio Conte is ready to offer the player a right wing-back role in his starting 11 ahead of Victor Moses.
