Breaking news in the last hour suggests that Chelsea are now close to agreeing a £35 million deal to sign Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

The Standard, who are usually a decent source with English Clubs, have said that Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger is close to allowing the England International to leave, as reluctant as he is to do so.

Oxlade-Chamberlain is refusing to negotiate a new contract with The Gunners and Chelsea have been hovering around. The Blues are allegedly now pretty confident that a transfer can be agreed between the two Clubs before the window ends.
