Sports Chelsea Makes £25m Bid for Chamberlain

I do not think we can say the same thing of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, though, despite the boss saying a lot of good things about the dynamic England worldwide and despite the fact that he seems to have found a new lease of life as a wing back in Wenger's new three at the back formation.

Oxlade-Chamberlain is the final year of his contract and is demanding a wage increase from £65,000 to £120,000, which is way off what Arsenal are reportedly prepared to give him.

Arsenal signed the 23-year-old in a £12m deal from Southampton in 2010 but Oxlade-Chamberlain has failed to realise his talent at The Emirates.

The Daily Star has revealed that the Blues have raised their bid after they initially offered £25 million for the 23-year-old.

It is understood that the Premier League champions have raised their offer after their Portuguese manager became frustrated at the club's lack of transfer activity over the summer months.

Oxlade-Chamberlain moved to the Emirates Stadium from Southampton in the summer of 2011 and has since racked up nearly two hundred appearances in all competitions, scoring twenty goals.

Liverpool are reportedly more open to that idea, but have not quite shown as much of an interest.

"I think in his career he had some bad moments because he had some small injuries", he told reporters.

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. He will continute to move up beecause the potential is there.

As per the Daily Star, Conte is a huge admirer of Oxlade-Chamberlain, and has highlighted him to the Chelsea board as a player he would like them to sign before the end of the transfer window. Today he is conscious of his qualities.
