Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is the name on all our punter’s lips here in the Football Transfer Tavern as the Telegraph seem to think that Chelsea are after the Arsenal player as part of their Petr Cech deal.
As we know, the Blues are facing up to the fact that they will have to let Cech leave and stay in London, with the keeper himself wanting to remain in the capital and play for the Gunners, meaning Jose Mourinho is trying to get every possible thing out of the deal – and has identified the creative star as the man he wants.
We cannot see Arsene Wenger going for such a swap although as our landlord knows, Mourinho is one of the best managers in a transfer window, and Wenger certainly the worst when it comes to getting what their sides need. £50 million for David Luiz anyone?
Chelsea fans. Is this a fair deal? Do you think that would be enough to convince Mourinho to let Cech go to a club he sees as a rival? Let us know your thoughts below.
