Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is on the brink of joining Premier League champions Chelsea.
Oxlade-Chamberlain, 24, will be out of contract next summer and has refused to sign a new deal at Emirates Stadium.
Chelsea have declined to comment but it is understood they have agreed a transfer fee with their London rivals for the England international.
Liverpool have also shown an interest and could still make an offer for the former Southampton player.
Oxlade-Chamberlain has started every game for the Gunners so far this season, including Sunday’s 4-0 defeat at Liverpool, when he was substituted.
The midfielder would be Chelsea’s fifth major signing of the summer following the arrivals of striker Alvaro Morata, goalkeeper Willy Caballero, defender Antonio Rudiger and midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko.
