According to Mirror Sports Chelsea are furious to Liverpool for hijacking Alex Oxlade-Chamberlian move to Stamford Bridge.

The Blues agreed a £40 million fee with Arsenal to close the deal last Tuesday, but the English midfielder rejected the transfer to West London.

Chelsea feel “to be played” by  Liverpool to try and force the Gunners to sell The Ox to them, this is what happened, according to what Mirror Sports report:

It was Arsenal’s preference to sell to Chelsea rather than Liverpool as they believed Klopp’s side were more of a direct rival in the Premier League.

And after the north Londoners decided to sell him and agreed a fee with Chelsea for the player, Liverpool made sure he rejected the deal by promising to play him in midfield. It left Arsenal with nowhere to go as they couldn’t keep a player that they had told could leave.

Oxlade-Chamberlain is set to complete his move to Anfield today for a fee believed to be in the region of £ 50m

Danny Drinkwater is trying to force a move to Chelsea on this deadline day, after handing a formal transfer request to Leicester City in the past days.

Chelsea have so far failed to meet Leicester’s valuation of the English midfielder: a fee of around £25m is all that has been discussed until now, but the Foxes are demanding a fee in the region of £ 35m-40m to let him go.

However, Drinkwater is desperate for a move to Stamford Bridge and he will try to force his way to West London before 11 pm BST today, when this transfer window will shut down.

After Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain snubbed Chelsea, Blues boss Antonio Conte wants the club to break the Kenedy loan agreement with Newcastle.

The Brazilian winger was set to move to the Benitez’s side on this deadline day, but after failing to sign the Arsenal player ( who is now set to join Liverpool) Conte believes Kenedy must stay at Stamford Bridge.

The Italian manager was keen to add another left-back to his squad to challenged and give rest to Marcos Alonso – who moved to West London last year – but Chelsea missed the signings of Alex Sandro, Danilo and Oxlade-Chamberlain during this transfer window, that is why Kenedy is set to stay.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is on the brink to move to Liverpool after rejecting a Chelsea move yesterday.

The 24-year-old refused to sign for the Stamford Bridge side after a £ 40m fee with Arsenal was agreed on Tuesday.

The Reds are believed to have already agreed personal terms with the player but they still have to pact a fee with the Gunners.

The midfielder has made 198 appearances for Arsenal since joining them from Southampton in August 2011.

Liverpool have been pursuing Monaco‘s £75m-rated winger Thomas Lemar, but it is unlikely they would sign both players.

The battle between Chelsea and Diego Costa continues: while the club want the Spanish striker back in London to train with the rest of the team, Costa himself his still in Brazil.

Now, according to reports by talkSPORT the player has decided to call the removal men and to empty his Surrey mansion.

Not only Danny Drinkwater: Chelsea are holding talks with Leicester City also for their main star, Jamie Vardy.

The Blues are still looking for a striker to replace Diego Costa, set to leave the club after falling down with manager Antonio Conte.

Chelsea already splashed £ 67m to sign Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid, but the Spaniard has not convinced Conte yet, so the Italian boss would like to add another forward to his squad.

That is why they are considering a shock move for the man who led the Foxes to win an unexpected title two seasons ago: Leicester City fee request for him won’t be under £ 45m.

New Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic takes a little dig at his former club, Chelsea.

Speaking to Sky Sports after his super debut at Old Trafford against West Ham last Sunday, the Serbian midfielder claimed the Red Devils are one step above the Blues:

“Everyone knows what Manchester United is about. It is different.

“Chelsea is a big club, Benfica are the biggest club in Portugal. But Manchester United is Manchester United.”

“Maybe you have two or three clubs similar to United, but it is one of the biggest clubs in the world for sure.

“When I came here for the first day, I could feel that the people at the club help you every day if you need something and supporters are very important for this club.”

Matic spoke also about José Mourinho, who strongly wanted to reunite with him at Old Trafford after bringing him back to Chelsea in January 2014:

“He was very important for me,” the Serbian said about the Special One.

“When I decided to come to Manchester, he was a reason to come here.

“My decision was very quick and very clear. You don’t need to think a lot about if you are going to come.”

Former Scotland midfielder John Collins claims Chelsea striker Diego Costa, who is continuing his summer break in Brazil while pushing for a return to Atletico Madrid, is a shame for the profession of footballer:

“He’s just a disgrace,” the ex Celtic Glasgow player said on talkSPORT.

“He’s an embarrassment to the profession, to be honest, with what he’s doing.

“I hope they sell him because it will be a nightmare for the manager if he comes back and is hanging around the dressing room.”

After his foolishness on social networks compromised his China tour with Chelsea and, probably, also his future at the West London club, Brazilian young winger Kenedy is set for a loan move to Newcastle.

It seems that the loan will not be authorised by Antonio Conte just yet, as the boss is concerned about losing yet another member of his squad, which is already paper-thin.

The Kenedy deal will probably be completed once Chelsea will secure another couple of players in this transfer window.
