Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain and Ross Barkley to Chelsea

CHELSEA are ready to up their interest in English stars Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Ross Barkley.

Barkley, 23, is on his way out of Everton as he looks for a fresh challenge away from Goodison Park.

And Oxlade-Chamberlain, 23, has been linked with a move away from Arsenal as he has only 12 months remaining on his contract and has yet to put pen to paper on a fresh deal.

Now, the Daily Mail say both are targets for Antonio Conte at Chelsea, who is thought to be looking for more homegrown talent in his squad.

Liverpool are also linked with a move for Oxlade-Chamberlain, but the Blues will be hoping to beat Jurgen Klopp’s side to the punch.

The Mail’s report adds that Chelsea want four more players signed before the end of the transfer window.

Juventus left-back Alex Sandro is still on their radar along with Inter Milan wide-man Antonio Candreva.

But neither team are keen to sell their brightest players which could make a move difficult.

Chelsea have already reinforced all levels of their squad this summer, with Alvaro Morata arriving from Real Madrid, Tiemoue Bakayoko joining from Monaco and Antonio Rudiger signing from Roma.
