Jurgen Klopp Clear to Sign $32million Star for Liverpool

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.

    Obviously, he is offered to Liverpool but who wants the leftovers of Arsenal. Do you think that Arsenal would let him go if he was a good player? He had no impact at all last season, besides that, he is a slow player for the type of football that Liverpool is playing. Surely given the present squad of players he has no place in the Liverpool squad and after all, I do not blame Arsenal of not accepting his conditions of a new contract because he is not worthed. However, would do good with a bottom placed Premier club.

    yes I agree that Ox is slow when compared with what has been introduced at Liverpool but he has age as an advantage and can still manage the new measure. Let us give him the benefit of doubt and you will see.
