Chelsea are reportedly lining up a move for England international Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

The defending Premier League champions, who face Scunthorpe United in the FA Cup this weekend, have identified the Arsenal winger as their ideal replacement for wantaway star Eden Hazard.

The 22-year-old; who has 24 international caps for the Three Lions, has scored one goal in 24 appearances in all competitions for the Gunners this season, ironically it was the winning goal against the Blues in the FA Community Shield back in August.

With Chelsea forward Hazard attracting interest from Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich this summer, it seems the club feel Oxlade-Chamberlain, who cost Arsenal an initial £12m back in August 2011 from Southampton, can fulfil his full potential at Stamford Bridge ahead of next term.
