Chelsea are on the brink of concluding £75m deals for Danny Drinkwater and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, according to reports.

The Daily Express is reporting that the Premier League champions are close to completing a summer swoop for Arsenal midfielder Oxlade-Chamberlain.

The title holders have reportedly agreed a £35m fee with the north London club for the 24-year-old and are now working on agreeing personal terms with the midfielder.

According to the same article, the Blues are edging towards a £40m deal to sign Leicester City midfielder Danny Drinkwater before Thursday’s transfer deadline.

Chelsea are looking to reinforce their midfield options following Nemanja Matic’s £40m move to their direct title rivals Manchester United earlier this month.

The west London side are also looking to improve their wing-back options ahead of the start of the Champions League group stage.

Antonio Conte will be presumably hoping that Oxlade-Chamberlain can provide competition for Victor Moses at right wing-back.
