Liverpool are currently the top scorers in the Premier League but they still need to improve the quality and depth of their attack in the summer transfer window.
The Reds were Chelsea’s closest title rivals but they collapsed in the month of January when Sadio Mane was playing the African Cup of Nations.
Last weekend’s win over Stoke City was the first PL game that Liverpool won this season in the absence of the Senegalese playmaker. Therefore, Jurgen Klopp is looking to bolster his attack and once again, Arsenal star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is in the spot light.
According to Telegraph, the German boss is a keen admirer of the England international and Liverpool are ready to sign him. Alex’s current contract will expire in 2018, he is rated around 35 million pounds ($44million) by the Gunners and Liverpool are not scared off by that price tag.
The 23-year-old star is a speedy playmaker, who can be deployed anywhere in the attacking third and also in the midfield if needed.
The former Sothampton man has scored 6 goals and provided 8 assists in all competitions for the North Londoners this season. However, in the presence of Alexis, Theo and Ozil, he has mainly warmed the bench.
Overall, Oxlade-Chamberlain has so far made 39 appearances for Arsenal this season but he has only been able to start 21 times and completed 90 minutes in just 8 games.
In your opinion, will Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain improve Liverpool’s attack?
