Chelsea agrees £35m deal with Arsenal for transfer of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

According to Sky Sports News , Arsenal have agreed to sell the England international to their London rivals for £35m, and a medical could be carried out at England’s training base.

It was reported last week that the Blues were ‘growing increasingly confident’ of completing a deal for the 23-year-old, who has rejected the chance to sign a new contract at the Emirates Stadium.

The England international scored twice and registered seven assists in 29 Premier League appearances for Arsenal during the 2016-17 campaign, but he struggled to hold down a regular position in the team.

He has started all three of Arsenal’s Premier League fixtures this season, however, including the 4-0 defeat at Liverpool on Sunday afternoon.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has scored 20 times in 197 appearances for Arsenal following a 2011 move from Southampton.
