Report: £35m man could still leave Liverpool this summer, despite Klopp trying him in new position
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could still leave Liverpool this summer, ESPN report.
Future in doubt
Oxlade-Chamberlain has just two years left on his current deal at Liverpool and is apparently unlikely to be offered a new contract.
As a result Liverpool know that this summer is set to be their last chance to receive a significant sum for him, which leaves them open to offers.
Whether any side will make a bid for Oxlade-Chamberlain remains to be seen.
However, Liverpool would apparently consider cashing in on the former England international, who they signed for £35 million (BBC Sport).
A new position?
The report comes after an intriguing experiment in pre-season, which has seen Oxlade-Chamberlain playing up-front.
The forward led the line for Liverpool against Stuttgart in the Reds’ opening pre-season game, with Jurgen Klopp suggesting that he could utilise him in the position more often.
Oxlade-Chamberlain has struggled for game time at Liverpool in recent years, largely down to injury.
But if he could prove himself as a useful attacker then he could still have a role to play at Anfield over the upcoming campaign.
