Liverpool will listen to offers for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain during the summer transfer window, reliable journalist Paul Joyce has confirmed.
The Lowdown: Ox’s disappointing season
The Reds may have had a season to remember, with a treble still possible, but one player who has struggled to make any kind of impact is Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Oxlade-Chamberlain appears to be surplus to requirements under Jurgen Klopp, with a summer exit in the offing.
The Latest: Joyce makes key claim
Writing for The Times, Joyce claimed that Liverpool are happy for the midfielder to move on at the end of the season, having fallen completely out of favour:
“Liverpool will listen to offers for the 28-year-old, who has one year remaining on his contract.”
The Verdict: Perfect time to move on
It makes complete sense for everyone concerned for Oxlade-Chamberlain to depart Liverpool this summer, allowing the Reds to receive a fee and the player to become a regular elsewhere.
His current deal expires in 2023, so this is their last chance to get significant money for the former Arsenal man before losing him on a free next year.
Oxlade-Chamberlain’s Liverpool career has certainly fizzled out in recent times but he should still be remembered as a solid signing who has played a part in the Reds’ great success under Klopp, with the manager himself describing his player as ‘spectacular’.
