Chelsea have eyes on Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ross Barkley and Danny Drinkwater, according to Sky Sources.

Sky broke the news earlier on this evening about Chelsea's interest in Leicester midfielder Danny Drinkwater, who has since become under the radar after their title-winning season.

The England international, who has three years of his contract left at Leicester City, would be one of the contenders to replace the recently departed Nemanja Matic in midfield, although their physical aspects differ between the two.

Chelsea are favourites to sign Arsenal winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, according to bookmakers BetStars. Chamberlain's contract saga drags on, with him being in the final 12 months of his deal and is yet to agree a contract extension with Arsenal.

The England international, if signed, will likely play a wing back role under manager Antonio Conte. There will be a great battle under Moses and Chamberlain for the position - which will boost Victor Moses' determination to fight for his place in the Chelsea team.

The Telegraph have also reported our interest in Chamberlain, along with England teammate Ross Barkley. The two Englishmen are both reportedly being monitored by Chelsea ahead of the new season.

Everton manager Ronald Koeman has confirmed Ross Barkley will leave this summer if an appropriate bid is made. The 23-year old is priced at £50 million by the Everton board, something we can invest in after the recent departure of Nemanja Matic.
