Liverpool need a versatile midfielder this summer and they have been linked with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for a long time now.
Yesterday, we covered a report (via Daily Mail) claiming that the Gunners are confident that Alex will stay at the Emirates.
However, Sky Sports have other ideas. They reported that even though reports in the media are suggesting that the 23-year-old star will stay, Sky sources believe that he is closer to leaving the club, the negotiations on a new deal have stalled and no further talks are planned.
In such a scenario, Klopp is clear to sign the $32million rated star (Mirror), who he has admired for a long time.
In fact, if we take reports into consideration then the German boss should be considered favorite to secure his signature.
Back in May, Telegraph reported that the versatile midfielder is tempted by the idea of playing for Klopp at Anfield. Moreover, last month, Independent claimed that Alex ix expected to leave and Anfield is his likely destination.
As per the provided Sky link, the likes of Chelsea and Man City are interested in signing Oxlade-Chamberlain, who mostly warmed the bench under Wenger. He needs to play more regular first team football next season and will be aware that the Blues and the Citizens have more squad depth than Liverpool.
