Chelsea Offer £25 Million For Arsenal Midfielder

Antonio Conte is desperate to strengthen his squad ahead of a Premier League title defence

The newspaper says that Oxlade-Chamberlain is also keen on the idea of playing for Chelsea as they are able to offer him Champions League football as well as meet his £120,000-a-week wage demands.

Chelsea have reportedly made a £35m bid for Arsenal's Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has failed to agree a deal with the north London side to prompt talk of a move to one of Arsenal's title rivals.

According to the Daily Mail, the Blues have made an opening offer of £25 million for the England worldwide, who only has a year left on his contract at the Emirates stadium.

Former Southampton midfielder Oxlade-Chamberlain has been linked with a potential switch to Liverpool in the summer transfer window.

Venezuelan protesters endure rights violations
On Tuesday, Venezuela's Supreme Court ordered the arrest and 15-month imprisonment of opposition mayor Ramon Muchacho. Despite the strong arm tactics by the Maduro government, the opposition called for another nationwide protest Tuesday.

In your opinion, do Chelsea really need Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain? "He's also just got 12 months to go on his contract", Solhekol told Sky Sports News on Wednesday.

Arsenal boast a stunning 17 additional players to their London counterparts and Chelsea's expediency in dispensing with players has left them in what appears to be a perilous position.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has struggled to establish himself as a first choice starter for Arsene Wenger, with nearly half his league appearances coming as a substitute.

Oxlade-Chamberlain had a fantastic season for Arsenal previous year, playing in a variety of positions, including right wing, central midfield, and even as a right wing back.

The Gunners have signed Bosnian defender Sead Kolasinac in a free transfer from Bundesliga outfit Schalke 04 in June.
