Liverpool prepared to battle champions to seal stunning raid on Arsenal

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

There’s been an ironic from the Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern as they switch their attentions from another frustrating season to Bank Holiday celebrations.

According to the Daily Express, Leicester City and Liverpool will go head-to-head in a battle to land Gunners midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain this summer after a frustrating season with the club.

For much of his half decade in North London, the 22-year old winger has been a source of fan frustration after failing to wholly convince.

Feelings came to head earlier this season following a performance against Barcelona in the Champions League, a game that ended his season and chances of making Euro 2016.

The likes of West Ham United and former club Southampton have been linked with moves for the England international, though it is now claimed both the Foxes and the Reds will push for his signature.

Ahead of their first ever venture into the Champions League, the Premier League champions are reportedly looking to draft in high quality reinforcements.

Liverpool, meanwhile, have been lacking natural width ever since the departure of Raheem Sterling last summer, boasting only Jordon Ibe as a natural winger.
