Chelsea close to signing Arsenal star after increasing bid to £35 million

And now the Daily Mail claim the Premier League champions have stepped up their in Oxlade-Chamberlain, launching an opening bid of £25m.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has one year left on his deal meaning he can leave for nothing at the end of the season.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has recently been used as a wing-back by Arsene Wenger, which is believed to have caused Conte to step up his interest in bringing The Ox to Stamford Bridge.

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 global 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.

Blues' boss Antonio Conte is an admirer of the England worldwide and is keen to add him to his squad as he prepares for a return to the Champions League.

Remember Those Strong Password Rules? Forget Them Here's The Real Deal
Some of these include regularly changing your password every 90 days and using obscure numbers, characters, capital letters, etc. Burr thought back then if you replace a few letters with numbers and characters you'd create a harder to crack password.

The England worldwide has been linked with both Liverpool and Chelsea this summer, the latter of whom are reportedly prepared to hand over £25m for his signature.

'Personally, I think he is a hugely talented player.

Arsenal are keen to keep hold of the 23-year-old, but with just one year remaining on his current deal, and the Gunners being reluctant to meet his wage demands, they could be forced to cash in or face losing him for nothing next summer.

Chamberlain will fit in well at wing-back where he has impressed so far with Arsenal since Arsene Wenger switched to three-man defence system.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has struggled to establish himself as a first choice starter for Arsene Wenger, with nearly half his league appearances coming as a substitute.
