Liverpool attacker Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could be set to call time on his stint at Merseyside club amidst interest from former team Arsenal. England international joined Liverpool in 2017 and enjoyed a promising debut campaign at Anfield.
Oxlade-Chamberlain particularly excelled in Liverpool’s victories over Man City. An unfortunate injury in the UCL semifinal with Roma ended his campaign prematurely and hit the brakes on his career at Anfield. In the four years at the club, Alex has played only 109 games scoring 14 goals and assisting 12 more.
To put things into context, the 28-year-old attacker has also missed 74 matches due to injury in the same timeframe. The English attacker stays a popular member of the Reds squad and also has the German coach’s blessings.
Jurgen Klopp sees the attacker as a valuable member of his team, and the Reds even rejected advances for his services last summer. While the Englishman is keen to remain put, he is also partial to playing regularly. Ar 28, Alex is arguably in the prime of his career and could do with more playing time, a proposition that is difficult at Liverpool.
Alex has started only one match for the Reds this campaign and has largely come off the bench. This does little to aid him in his ambition to return to the England setup. Curiously enough, his former side, Gunners, could provide him with what he is seeking.
