Chelsea reportedly leading the likes of Man Utd and Liverpool in race for 24-year-old attacker

The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are eagerly awaiting a few more signings…

Antonio Conte’ side has made a very slow start to the season, with defeat at Burnley spelling bad news for the Blues, whilst a lack of transfer progress has left the fans in the Transfer Tavern feeling pretty glum.

Clearly, new players are vital at Stamford Bridge this summer, though they are running out of time to make them happen.

Fortunately for the Blues, it appears as though they are leading the race for one of England’s most in-demand players – Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. According to The Gambling Times, whilst likes of Man Utd and Liverpool have enquired about the availability of the Englishman and hold an interest, his desire to remain in London has left Chelsea in charge – with the Blues very keen to get a deal done.

In a summer where Chelsea have struggled to get the players that they want, this would mark a very clear win for the Blues – with the Ox attracting a lot of interest across the Premier League.

A deal still remains some way off, but there is clearly room for optimism at Stamford Bridge at last.

Landlord’s Verdict

The Ox will be a fantastic signing for Chelsea – if they can get the deal done.

By beating off their competition, they are clearly in a good position, but they still need to convince Arsenal to sell the midfielder.

Should he arrive, a role on the right-hand side of the Chelsea defence is to be expected, with Conte likely to give him the ‘Victor Moses’ treatment.
