Chelsea may have already spent over £100 million strengthening their Premier League title winning squad, this summer, but manager Antonio Conte is still not satisfied with his board's transfer dealings and is determined to force through more moves before transfer deadline day.

Today, Chelsea increase their offer for Arsenal's Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain....

Arsenal have tried to tie Oxlade-Chamberlain down to a new contract, but so far, the player's representative has rejected all the offers.

Chelsea have submitted a new bid of £35million for Arsenal playmaker Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, according to a report.

The Daily Star report that Chelsea's initial £25M bid was matched by Liverpool, and they have now increased it to £35M in hope of landing the England worldwide this summer. "He's had some small injuries but a year ago he was much more stable".

Chelsea are reportedly set to make a £35 million bid for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain with Antonio Conte keen to bring him to Stamford Bridge. Personally I believe he is a hugely talented player who is on the way up.

Oxlade-Chamberlain scored six goals and made 11 assists in 27 starts and 18 substitute appearances in all competitions in the 2016-17 campaign.

The Gunners are also now facing the same dilemma with Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, both of whom have also refused to commit their futures to the North London club amid interest from other clubs. The 23-year-old is a favourite among fans and fellow team-mates and a departure from the Emirates would be devastating for the club.
