Arsenal considering Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Nemanja Matic swap

Arsenal considering Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Nemanja Matic swap

Gianluca Di Marzio has revealed that Juventus have made Manchester United target Nemanja Matic a top priority in this summer's transfer window.

He has been linked with reuniting with former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho at Manchester United and it has been claimed in some quarters that Matic is pushing to go to Old Trafford.

The Serbian midfielder has been told he can leave Stamford Bridge for £40million following the arrival of Monaco's Tiemoue Bakayoko, 22, for the same price. The Gunners are ready to offer Alex Oxlaide Chamberlain as part exchange for Matic.

It is reported that both Manchester United, and unnamed sides from Italy, have both shown an interest in signing Matic.

Chelsea are hoping to use Matic as leverage in the Sandro deal, with Juventus having been keen on the midfielder since last summer.

Matic, along with Diego Costa, has been left out of Chelsea's pre-season squad to tour the Far East, leading to rumours that a deal for the midfielder could be close.

The Serbia global is reportedly a target for Manchester United, Arsenal and Juventus and has largely trained alone this week.

Given the fact that Serbian worldwide Nemanja Matic also holds a Slovak citizenship, it would exempt him from occupying a non-EU spot in the team both of which have been taken by Douglas Costa and Rodrigo Bentancour.
