It is certainly interesting to note that Chamberlain has just one year left on his contract and so will be able to leave the club on a free come the end of the season.
The club can also offer Champions League football with Conte keen to strengthen and having been angered by the club's transfer activity so far this summer.
This is according to the Daily Mail, who claim that the the Gunners had rejected Chelsea's initial advances for the England worldwide.
While the Mail's report claims that Arsenal have dismissed Chelsea's initial interest in the former Southampton youngster, it isn't believed their unwillingness to sell to one of their closest rivals will deter the Blues from securing a deal for Oxlade-Chamberlain, who Conte wants to operate as a wing-back in his much lauded 3-4-3 formation.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has grown significantly since joining the club as a teenager back in 2011, but his relationship with the Gunners appears to have turned sour over recent months. The 23-year-old has scored 20 times during that time and helped the club lift three FA Cups. He displayed an impressive performance during the Community Shield and proved that he is worthy of both starting and playing the full 90 minutes of a match. If he moved to Chelsea this could change, but he could just as easily find himself warming the bench again.
In addition to this is the fact that the 23-year-old has seen game time in the wing back position, which makes him a ideal fit for Conte's charges, who employed a back three liberally last season.
