23-year-old star wants £150,000 a week to sign for Chelsea

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain apparently wants £150,000 a week to sign for Chelsea this summer, say reports

The Arsenal star is demanding wages of £150,000 a week if he is to make the switch to Chelsea from Arsenal this summer, according to reports.

Goal is claiming Chelsea are still interested in the 23-year-old midfielder, even though Arsenal has insisted that he is not for sale.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has only one year left on his current contract at The Emirates and has not yet signed a new deal with the north London side.

The same report says that Arsenal want to keep Oxlade-Chamberlain but are “struggling” to meet his wage demands in a new contract.

The report also says that a fee of around £35m could convince Arsenal into selling the midfielder, although it remains to be seen whether the Gunners would be prepared to do business with a direct rival.

It also says that a pay-rise to £150,000 a week is more than double his current wage, with Oxlade-Chamberlain said to be earning around £65,000 a week at Arsenal at present.

The midfielder featured from the start for the Gunners as they sealed a thrilling 4-3 win over Leicester City in their Premier League opener last week.

Arsenal take on Stoke City in their next Premier League game at the bet365 Stadium this coming Saturday evening.
