In addition to this is the fact that the 23-year-old has seen game time in the wing back position, which makes him a flawless fit for Conte's charges, who employed a back three liberally last season.

Oxlade-Chamberlain's future at the Emirates is in serious doubt as he's inside the final year of his contract and has so far refused to sign an extension despite lengthy talks with Arsenal officials.

The Englishman has been heavily linked with a move to Liverpool or Chelsea last month.

As per the Daily Star, Conte is a huge admirer of Oxlade-Chamberlain, and has highlighted him to the Chelsea board as a player he would like them to sign before the end of the transfer window.

Sportsmail understands Chelsea have stepped up their interest in the England global over the past week.

He added that the boats crossing the short but choppy sea to Spain were much smaller than those launching from Libya to Italy. Three times as many migrants have arrived so far in 2017 as the amount who had arrived in the same period a year ago .

The Mail reports that Antonio Conte sees Oxlade-Chamberlain as a flawless fit for the wing-back system he deploys at Stamford Bridge and he could provide good competition to both Marcos Alonso and Victor Moses due to his ability to play on both flanks.

"I think in his career he had some bad moments because he had some small injuries", Wenger said of Oxlade-Chamberlain.

"He'll continue to move up because the potential is there".

Arsene Wenger has made it clear that he intends to keep hold of the former Southampton man but it is claimed the player himself is attracted to the idea of a switch to west London. He's today very conscious of his qualities as well, something he was not always.
