Arsenal ace Evens for Chelsea move as Blues plot another spree
They’ve already splashed the cash on Alvaro Morata, Antonio Rudiger and Tiemoue Bakayoko this summer, but Chelsea are now set to turn their attentions to targets closer to home.
The Blues are even-money shots to snap up Arsenal ace Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, on the back of an impressive campaign which saw the England international chalk up six goals and 11 assists for the Gunners.
Elsewhere, odds of Ross Barkley heading to Stamford Bridge this summer have also been trimmed from 7/1 to just 3/1. That means the West London club are now second-favourites for the Everton star’s signature, behind Tottenham Hotspur.
There’s also a possibility of a former Blue returning home in the shape of Ryan Bertrand.
The Southampton full-back was on the Blues’ books from 2008-2015, making 52 appearances amidst a flurry of loan spells. He’s now 5/2 to be the latest Chelsea player to be sold and then bought back.
And there’s one continental target to add to the bunch, with Conte now 5/4 to lure Portuguese prodigy Renato Sanches to the Bridge, with the teenager out of favour at current club Bayern Munich.
A Ladbrokes spokesperson said: “Chelsea have already forked out well over £100m this summer but the odds suggest they’re far from done, with a trio of Prem aces and a teenage prodigy now on their radar.”
