Chelsea have reportedly agreed a fee with Arsenal for the signing of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain with only a few days left before the transfer window closes.

The 24-year-old, who has also been linked with Liverpool, has played all four of Arsenal's games this season, including the Community Shield clash against Chelsea, which Arsene Wenger's side won on penalties.

Oxlade-Chamberlain, who has entered the final 12 months of his contract, was offered improved terms to commit his future to Arsenal but made clear that his preference was to seek a new challenge.

The Times claim that the Merseysiders believe they can "tempt" the Arsenal midfielder to move to Anfield even though he is in the advanced stages of a switch to west London.

Winterburn thinks Oxlade-Chamberlain is seeking a "new challenge" away from Arsenal and says clubs such as Chelsea admire him because of his ability to play in a number of positions. So he could compete with Moses at Chelsea.

Liverpool showed interest for Chamberlain but the player preferred to remain in London.

"I want to keep my best players".

Oxlade-Chamberlain, who has made 198 appearances for Arsenal since joining them from Southampton in August 2011, would be the first arrival since the Italian said he wanted to sign four more players. "And can he really be guaranteed a starting place above those players?"

Thus, Chelsea are set to finally succeed in their bid to land Oxlade-Chamberlain, handing Conte much reprieve in his own attempts to strengthen his squad. Intriguingly, the Times report Liverpool plan to plan him in his favourite central or advanced role.
