Chelsea and Arsenal could swap Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Nemanja Matic, according to reports, in a move that makes little sense for either party.
Sky Italia report that Arsenal are interested in a deal to bolster their central midfield options with a move for Matic, and would offer Oxlade-Chamberlain in exchange. Because we know that swap deals happen all the time.
Sky Italy: Arsenal want swap deal with Chelsea – Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for Nemanja Matic

In fairness, Sky Italy have been going Premier League mad. They also claim that Sampdoria want Jack Wilshere for £9m and that Juventus want Matic. Somebody’s agent is being busy.
We’d say it’s a complete non-starter. Surely Matic wants Champions League football and surely Oxlade-Chamberlain wants a club where he will start regularly in the league?
