Liverpool could move for Arsenal Midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain before the transfer window is shut down.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who moved from Southampton to Arsenal in 2011, isn’t very happy with Arsene Wenger. He is said to not prefer the Wing-back position, which is where is is played to often, and wants to play proper midfield.
Given a player of his pedigree, it’s normal for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to think of moving to new shores and polishing his skills to get into the World Cup Squad. However, it remains to see whether Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp, a big time admirer of Alex, would match £40m fee which Arsenal agreed with Chelsea, only for Alex to turn it down.
Oxlade-Chamberlain has started each of Arsenal’s four games so far this season despite telling manager Arsene Wenger he would not sign a new contract.
He was applauded warmly by the Liverpool fans after he was substituted during Arsenal’s 4-0 defeat at Anfield on Sunday.
Liverpool have been pursuing Monaco’s £75m-rated winger Thomas Lemar, but it is unlikely they would sign both players.
