Chelsea want to wrap up transfer deals for Danny Drinkwater, Ross Barkley and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain before the close of the summer transfer window next Thursday, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Telegraph is reporting that the Blues are keen to wrap up deals for all three of the England internationals as they bid to try and quickly strengthen their squad before the deadline.

The same report says that as well as having tabled a £35m bid for Oxlade-Chamberlain, Chelsea are also hoping to sign Leicester midfielder Drinkwater, valued at £40m, and Everton midfielder Barkley, valued at £25m.

The story says that Chelsea “ideally” want to sign all three players before the transfer window closes next week.

The same report goes on to claim that the Blues have also not given up hope of signing Juventus full-back Alex Sandro before the deadline after having been linked with the left-back all summer.

Chelsea are currently preparing for their Premier League clash against Everton at Stamford Bridge on Sunday as they look to build on their 2-1 victory over Tottenham at Wembley last weekend.

The west London side have brought in four new players so far this summer, after tying up deals for Willy Caballero, Antonio Rudiger, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Alvaro Morata.
