Chelsea are reportedly lining up a shock move for Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain as they prepare a replacement for the unsettled Eden Hazard.
It is reported that Chelsea are resigned to losing Eden Hazard at the end of the season, because the Belgium international is understood to have decided to leave Stamford Bridge at this summer, with Paris Saint Germain and Real Madrid both keen to sign the playmaker.
According to our sources, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been spotted as a possible replacement for Hazard, amid speculation that the Arsenal midfielder is seeking fresh challenge.
The England international is said to be keen on regular playing time, and he is never a first choice for Arsene Wenger when the Gunners squad is free of injury.
With Chelsea’s long-term interest on Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, it is believed that Guus Hiddink will be preparing a bid soon enough.
