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.
