Liverpool: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain backed to leave Anfield this summer

Liverpool: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain backed to leave Anfield this summer -Liverpool News

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain should be sold by Liverpool in the summer transfer window, according to former Premier League striker Kevin Campbell.

The Lowdown: Ox out of favour

The 28-year-old has had a hit-and-miss Reds career, proving to be a key player at times but also suffering numerous injury problems and falling down the pecking order.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has been limited to just nine starts in the Premier League so far this season, and it looks unlikely that he will feature again in 2021/22.

With the midfielder’s current Liverpool deal expiring in 2023, this summer could be the last chance for the club to earn a transfer fee from his exit.

The Latest: Summer exit mooted

Speaking to Football Insider, Campbell claimed that it is time for Oxlade-Chamberlain to move on from Liverpool, with Aurelien Tchouameni potentially replacing him. The 52-year-old said:

“You can never have enough quality and youth in the middle of the park. They need to get a touch younger. Oxlade-Chamberlain looks like he will leave. There may be a couple of outgoings in that position.

“I think it would be wise to freshen things up a little bit. If someone like Tchouameni comes in it keeps everyone on their toes. It would be a smart move if they manage to get that over the line.”

The Verdict: The end seems nigh

It feels almost inevitable that Oxlade-Chamberlain will leave Liverpool at the end of the season, considering how he seems to be nowhere near Jurgen Klopp’s current plans.

His last appearance came against Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup in March, a month after he last played in the league. Indeed, the 28-year-old hasn’t even been in a Premier League matchday squad since the first weekend of April [Transfermarkt].

His manager has hailed him as ‘brilliant’ in the past but he has become an increasingly forgotten man at Anfield, and his absolute peak years look to be behind him.

Oxlade-Chamberlain could move to another Premier League club and become a key player, so it would make sense for him to move on and enjoy a fresh challenge.
