Liverpool in danger to lose 28-year-old versatile midfielder

By | July 4, 2022

Liverpool misfit Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is allegedly concerned about his long-term future on Merseyside amid his struggles for playing time.

The club forked out £34.2m to land the 28-year-old from Arsenal five years ago, but he has failed to become a regular starter under Jurgen Klopp.

Injuries haven’t helped Oxlade-Chamberlain’s cause, but he already finds himself behind Thiago Alcantara, Jordan Henderson and Fabinho in the Anfield pecking order.

Naby Keita, James Milner and Curtis Jones have enjoyed more minutes in the latest weeks than Alex, who has not played for the Reds in any tournament since facing Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup back two months ago.

The former Southampton star hasn’t played in the Premier League since February, and the German manager has left him out of the roster for his side’s last five top-flight matches.

With the Englishman’s contract due to run out at the end of next term, the English giants have been tipped to allocate a fee for him this summer rather than risk losing the midfielder for free in 2023.

According to the Daily Mail, he’s growing increasingly concerned about his long-term future at the club, with the board yet to open discussions over a possible contract extension.

The report continues, by saying that the Reds management have “no active plans” to cash in on him.
