HYS: Should Chelsea swoop for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain?

According to reports from Mirror Football, Chelsea are ready to join the race to sign Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain alongside Liverpool and Manchester City.

That may come as a surprise to some Blues supporters; after all, the common consensus is that the 23-year-old hasn’t reached the heights expected since arriving from Southampton as a youngster, and he only managed 16 Premier League starts last season.

But the end of 2016/17 highlighted how the 27-cap England international could be a useful asset in Antonio Conte’s squad, performing exceptionally well at right wing-back to add to the vast number of roles he’s already featured in for the Gunners.

So, Chelsea fans, should your club swoop for Oxlade-Chamberlain, who Transfermarkt value at £17millon, or leave it to Liverpool and Manchester City to battle it out for his services? Let us know if you’d welcome the former Saints starlet to Stamford Bridge with open arms by voting in the poll below…
