Not many have crossed the Merseyside border, especially from red to blue, but former Everton striker Marcus Bent believes that Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could be the next.
The former Gunner could leave Anfield this summer having found himself out of the side under Jurgen Klopp this season – appearing just 13 times in the Premier League.
Should Everton sign Kvaratskhelia?
A knee problem kept Oxlade-Chamberlain out of the opening three months of the campaign, but even when he did return to fitness, he made just two starts in the league.
Remarkably, the 27-year-old was on the pitch for 286 minutes in all competitions for the Reds which has ended any chance of being named Gareth Southgate’s squad.
He did come back into the England frame at the backend of 2019, but with both his club career now up in the air, that feat appears some way off for the versatile midfielder.
However, Oxlade-Chamberlain has still been linked with a move to Borussia Dortmund in a £17m deal, but Bent exclusively told The Transfer Tavern that Goodison Park could yet be his next destination:
“What Everton have said is that he’s someone they would be interested in – the problem being, he’s had injuries.
“He has talent, he’s been around the England squad, he’s mature now.”
