Sports Chelsea Makes £25m Bid for Chamberlain

Chelsea have tabled a bid worth £25million for Arsenal attacker Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, according to a report.

This is according to the Daily Mail, who claim that the the Gunners had rejected Chelsea's initial advances for the England worldwide.

Arsenal's new offer is short of his desired contract, and unless they make an improved offer, Arsenal fans might have to accept that Chamberlain will not be their player for much longer.

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.

The only stumbling block on his contract renewal at Arsenal has been Wenger's insistence on assuring the 23-year-old a place in midfield.

The report suggests Chelsea's presence in the Champions League - along with a potential pay-rise at Stamford Bridge - could be two key factors as Oxlade-Chamberlain weighs up his future move.

The Daily Star say Premier League champions Chelsea are ready to step up their interest in Oxlade-Chamberlain and table a £35m offer.

Liverpool and Chelsea have both shown an interest in the player this summer.

Arsene Wenger has insisted he wants Oxlade-Chamberlain to stay, but if Arsenal can agree a new contract with the player or not remains to be seen.

"I think he's had in his career some bad moments, ' said Wenger". He's today very conscious of his qualities as well, something he was not always.
