PREMIER - Liverpool: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain back to Arsenal?
Signed by Liverpool for more than 40 million euros from Arsenal, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could soon return to the Gunners according to The Sun.
Lack of playing time with the Reds since the start of last season, with only 4 starts in 22 games, the English midfielder was absent due to a knee injury, which caused him to lose his place in the choices of Jürgen Klopp. Indeed, the international of the Three Lions (35 caps, 7 goals) would be frustrated not to be part of the rotation of the German coach, in a very rich Liverpool midfield (Henderson, Keïta, Milner, Thiago, Jones).
To get him back to the Emirates, Arsenal are said to be ready to negotiate a six-month loan with an option to buy. Mikel Arteta, who knew the 28-year-old between 2011 and 2016, would see him as an experienced player to rub shoulders with the youngsters of his workforce, such as Bukayo Saka or Emile Smith Rowe, and also to compensate for the future departures of Thomas Partey (Ghana) and Mohamed Elneny (Egypt) in Cameroon to play the next Africa Cup of Nations, scheduled from January 9 to February 6, 2022.
