Arsenal are ready to sell Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain to Chelsea, after he rejected the club’s latest offer, according to the 101 great goals.
The Ox on Thursday rejected Arsenal’s final contract offer worth £180,000 a week and has asked the club to let him leave.
Arsene Wenger is now expected to inform the player in the next few hours that he will be sold before the transfer window closes.
Chelsea and Liverpool have been monitoring Chamberlain’s situation closely and are expected to launch big bids for the England international.
Antonio Conte is prepared to part with £35m to sign the midfielder and he is growing increasingly confident of completing a deal before Thursday’s deadline.
Although Wenger doesn’t want to let Chamberlain join a rival, he could be powerless because of the club’s resolve to let Sanchez, who is also into the final year of his contract, run down his contract.
Yesterday, Wenger stated Chamberlain is indebted to Arsenal because the club spent so much money and time on his development but the midfielder doesn’t feel that way and remains adamant he wants to leave the club.
Chelsea are currently favorites to sign the winger and this baffles me a lot. One of the reason the Ox wants out is because he wants to play in his preferred central midfield position but he is unlikely to break into Chelsea’s first team in that position.
Arsenal have already done its part by offering the player more than he originally asked for and since he remains adamant that he wants to leave, I think we should bite off Chelsea’s hands when they come in with the much anticipated £35m offer.
