In the summer transfer market, Chelsea are reportedly desperate to land three signings to Stamford Bridge before the deadline of the summer transfer window.
The Blues Boss Antonio Conte is making a new move for three players in the Premier League, Danny Drinkwater, Ross Barkley and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain as the manager has been handed a budget of £100 million to wrap for the players, according to report from Thesportreview.
The report also claims that the Premier League Champions are yearning to wrap up deals for all three English players in hopes they could strengthen their squad before the deadline. The blues have tabled a bid of £35 million for Oxlade-Chamberlain, also hoping to sign Leicester Midfielder Drinkwater who is valued by the club at £40 million, with Midfielder Barkley at £25 million regardless of Tottenham leading the pack on the Everton player.
Chamberlain is running on the last 12 months on his Arsenal contract informing Arsene Wenger he won’t be signing a new deal with the Club. The Blues stepping up in ensuring a deal go through with the 24-year-old under the orders of the Head Coach, being unlikely that the Arsenal star will change his mind.
The Gunners Boss Wenger is keen to convince the English player to stay at Emirates Stadium, speaking about Chamberlain, Wenger said: “I rate him highly, he is one of the players who is on his way up and has made huge progress. I want him to stay here for a long time.”
Leicester City took to public to say they are not willing to sell their midfielder Drinkwater, which he will stay with the Foxes this season. The Blues have already seen a £15 million bid rejected by Leicester earlier this summer.
Report claims, the 27-year-old is keen to move to Stamford Bridge where he could re-unite with former teammate N’Golo Kante, Leicester Manager revealed that the midfielder could leave the club if the right offers present itself. Drinkwater will be filling the void left by Nemanja Matic in Conte squad.
Just like Chamberlain, Barkley also has 12 months left on his Everton contract, who is also unlikely to sign new contract with the club. The 23 year old has been ruled out for three months after losing to a hamstring injury.
Totenham is said to be interested in the Everton star, after an impressive performance last season. Barkley is valued at £50 million since the beginning of the summer by the Toffees and Conte will be expected to reduce their asking price for a transfer deal to go through.
Chelsea will be preparing for their premier league match against Everton at Stamford Bridge on Sunday as they will look to continue their winning streak after 2-1 win against Tottenham at Wembley last week.
