According to 90min, Premier League giants Liverpool have slapped a price tag of £10 million on out-of-favour midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain this summer. The Englishman moved to Anfield from Arsenal in 2017 but has struggled to secure himself a regular spot in the playing XI. Oxlade-Chamberlain, to his credit, enjoyed an excellent debut season but an injury sustained in the 2018 UEFA Champions League semi-final against AS Roma proved to be his undoing.
While the England international still continued to make several appearances and score goals, the 28-year-old never quite reached the levels expected of him on Merseyside. He has largely been condemned to the role of a substitute and found playing time difficult to come by towards the end of the 2021/22 campaign. It would appear that Liverpool are ready to part ways with Oxlade-Chamberlain this summer. With his contract with the club set to expire next year, it is now or never for Liverpool to cash in on the 28-year-old. The asking price of £10 million could prove to be a steal should interested parties manage to coax the best out of the versatile midfielder.
