Alex Oxlade Chamberlain signs new Liverpool deal and Rhian Brewster tweets his delight

The young forward posted a tweet following the ex-Arsenal man signing a new deal.

Liverpool opted to extend the contract of Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain earlier this week, confirming his stay until 2023 on their official website.

The midfielder missed the majority of last season with a serious knee ligament injury but has already looked in decent nick this campaign when called upon.

The £120,000-a-week (Spotrac) star arrived at Anfield from Arsenal in 2017 with the Reds paying £35 million to secure his services, according to BBC Sport.

He made a decent start to life at Anfield but the knee injury suffered in a Champions League game against Roma sidelined him for over a year.

The 26-year-old will be keen to make up for lost time during 2019/20.

It would appear that the man with 32 England caps is a popular figure among his team-mates.

Following the news that he had extended his contract on Merseyside, Rhian Brewster posted a tweet congratulating Oxlade-Chamberlain.

The post shows the young Liverpool striker alongside Virgil van Dijk and Jordan Henderson, with all three showcasing cheesy grins:

 

It would seem that Oxlade-Chamberlain is respected by his team-mates and he could be like a new signing this season.

That might seem somewhat cliched but prior to his injury, he was in the form of his life.

He had helped Liverpool to the Champions League semi-final where they faced Roma by beating Manchester City over two legs. Oxlade-Chamberlain netted a stunning goal in the first-leg at Anfield.

It will have hurt the hardworking player not to have played much of a part in Liverpool’s run to the Champions League final last season and he will be desperately keen to make up for lost time.
