Chelsea are growing increasingly confident they will sign Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain from Arsenal for around £35million.
Oxlade-Chamberlain is in the last year of his contract at Arsenal and is considering his future.
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte wants Oxlade-Chamberlain as one of four more signings at Stamford Bridge.
And according to the London Evening Standard, Chelsea have not yet agreed a fee with Arsenal but negotiations are ongoing and the Blues have received enough encouragement to believe a deal is possible.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has ruled out selling Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud before the 11pm deadline on August 31 but has given no guarantees over Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Wenger would prefer to keep the versatile 23-year-old, last week describing him as having the potential to become a “very great player”.
