Chelsea and Liverpool set to fight over Arsenal star
Chelsea are set to make an imminent bid for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, as they look to bolster their squad ahead of their title defence and return to Champions League football next season.
That’s according to the Express, who think that Liverpool are also keen on the player.
The Ox seems to have no future at Arsenal, with both the club and the player accepting it could well be time to move on for both parties and for Arsenal to cash in on him.
There’s even been rumours of a possible player plus cash deal involving Nemanja Matic, with Manchester City even thought to be willing to enter the mix for the player.
Given Arsenal have offered him a new deal worth £100,000 per week, it seems the player is leaving for various reasons – and while money does have plenty to do with it, the fact Arsene Wenger has never really seemed to know how best to use the player or where he can be utilised best may also be a factor.
Chelsea will obviously hope the transfer is key for them when it comes to retaining the title, and you can find betting odds for the Premier League right here.
