Premier League champions Chelsea have reportedly agreed a fee with London rivals Arsenal for one of their wantaway stars.

Salah Joins Two Africans In The EPL Team Of The Week

According to English publication The Sun, the Gunners have accepted a bid of £40 million (R677 million) from the Blues for England international Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

The report suggests that Chelsea will pay their rivals £35 million (R593 million) up front and £5 million (R84.7 million) in add-ons for the former Southampton youth product.

The 24-year-old, who is in the last year of his contract, has apparently rejected a deal worth £180 000 (R3 million) a week to stay at the Emirates.

Chelsea have not yet discussed personal terms with the player, but it has been claimed that Antonio Conte will not find it hard to persuade the talented midfielder to join him at Stamford Bridge.

The Italian tactician has been looking to strengthen his squad for weeks now, and the signing of the England star would be his fourth of the transfer window.

Chamberlain is said to be fed up with how Arsenal are being run on and off the field, and would apparently like the opportunity to play for a club that challenges for titles.

The midfielder has had his struggles with injuries in recent years, but has managed to make 198 appearances for Gunners.

I don't understand this club,selling players to direct rivals was something of the past they said.Now we have Ox going to Chelsea and Sanchez probably going to City...Which player will want to join a club that can't fix a longtime glaring deficiency and can't keep it's best talent.Wenger's legacy is being eroded and he is complicit too.

Aliko Dangote was spot on when saying he wants to buy the Gunners but he will sack Wenger n the man overstayed his welcome, so the team needs new fresh ideas
