Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain rejects move to Chelsea
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has rejected a move to Chelsea as he wants to move to Liverpool.
According to the very reliable David Ornstein, the Merseyside club will come in with an offer worth less than the £40m agreed with Chelsea.

If no agreement can be made then he will stay at Arsenal.
The Gunners were looking to move Chamberlain on as his contract expires in a year and he would be able to leave on a free if he did not sign a new deal.
All indications of late have been that he will not extend his contract so Arsenal wanted to cash in on the player whose value is perhaps as high as it has ever been.
Chamberlain wants to move from Arsenal as he sees himself playing in a central role, something he is unlikely to get much of at Chelsea.
He would likely play on the right side, either as first choice or back up for Victor Moses.
