The 23-year-old Arsenal star ready to finally leave Emirates

June 19, 2017

Liverpool are on red alert as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will notify Arsenal that he wants to leave this summer, according to stories.

The Sunday Times suggests that the 23-year-old has considered his future during his post-season vacation and believed a move away from Arsene Wenger’s side would serve his progression.

The Reds lead the race for the winger as he is special on Jurgen Klopp’s wanted list, though Chelsea and Manchester City are also keen.

Oxlade-Chamberlain only has one year left on his current deal with Arsenal and The Sunday Times suggest that Wenger has not made a serious effort to keep the player at the club.

The Englishman wants to find a new side before the start of pre-season, but The Gunners will hold out for a transfer fee more than £25 million.

Merseysiders are in the market for a new midfielder and are reportedly close to agreeing on a £39m contract with Roma for Mohamed Salah.

Arsenal, meanwhile, held discussions with Lyon president, Jean-Michel Aulas, in London this week over a transfer of Alexandre Lacazette.

The French side are holding out for a £60m transfer fee, however, have asked Arsenal regarding the availability of Olivier Giroud, who could be expected to be used as a makeweight in the deal.
