ENGLAND - Chelsea ready to test Arsenal's resolve with £35million bid for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Chelsea are ready to pay up to £35million for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Blues boss Antonio Conte is a huge fan of the Arsenal midfielder and is stepping up his efforts to tempt him across London.
Oxlade-Chamberlain is one of the Italian’s top targets and he is now poised to test Arsenal’s resolve to hang onto him.
The 23 year-old has just one year left on his contract and Conte hopes a big-money offer will persuade them to do business. Conte wants to bolster his squad by bringing in four more players before the window slams shut.
And he has earmarked the England man to compete with his title-winning right-wing back Victor Moses, a position Oxlade-Chamberlain prefers over the left wing back role he has been deployed in during pre-season.
Oxlade-Chamberlain’s Gunners contract talks have stalled though Wenger insisted the former Southampton youngster remains a big part of his plans. He said: “I think in his career he had some bad moments because he had some small injuries. Last year he was much more stable. “Personally, I think he is a hugely talented player. He is on the way up and he will continue to move up because that potential is there.
“He is today very conscious of his qualities as well, which he was not always, and I personally believe he will be a very great player.”

Roma defender Emerson Palmieri has completed his £17.5million move to Chelsea. Palmieri posed for pictures with the shirt on Tuesday evening after completing his medical and penning a four-and-a-half year contract. The Brazilian, who has been assigned the No 33 shirt at Chelsea, left his home in Rome to fly to London earlier in the day.  The 23-year-old left-back underwent several medical tests before putting pen to paper to move to Stamford Bridge.

Anthony Joshua working hard in the gym as he steps up preparations for Joseph Parker showdown

With just over two months to go until his return to the ring, Anthony Joshua is shaping up nicely after putting in the hard yards at the gym. The world heavyweight champion faces Joseph Parker at Cardiff's Principality Stadium on March 31, where he beat Carlos Takam in October. And trainer Jamie Reynolds has shared footage of the 28-year-old stepping up his preparations with various workouts in the gym. With the clock ticking ahead of the fight, Parker has outlined how he feels he can better his opponent. 'I want to fight a fight that's going to be a fast-paced fight… movement, speed and just different angles – I think that's how we are going to attack Joshua,' Parker told Radio Live. 'He's [Joshua] dominated fighters that stand in front of him, that don't move – all they do is protect themselves,' Parker said about Joshua. When it comes to finding a sparring partner, Parker is looking for a similar fighting style to his 6ft 5in, 240-pound opponent Joshua…
