The Blues from London are keen to sign the Arsenal midfielder.
Chelsea are eyeing the possibility of signing Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. According to Sportsmail, Conte’s side have stepped up their interest in the player during the past week.
Chelsea are now expected to intensify their attempts to lure the England international to Stamford Bridge as Conte seeks to strengthen his squad before the end of the close-season.
Oxlade has one year left on his contract, meaning he could leave Arsenal for free in 12 months. The Gunners are believed to not want to part ways with their midfielder, however, they are faced with a dilemma of losing him for nothing in the near future or letting him go now for a certain amount of money.
Oxlade-Chamberlin is a versatile player and he could easily fit into Conte’s 3-4-3 system that he has established at Chelsea.
