How much? Liverpool ready to pay huge money for an Arsenal midfielder

Liverpool, Arsenal & the Ox

The Telegraph have an incredible transfer story on Wednesday, claiming that Liverpool are ready to pay enormous money to sign an Arsenal midfielder.

An no, we’re not talking about either Mesut Ozil or Alexis Sanchez.

The Gunners star reportedly on Jurgen Klopp’s shopping list is Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and the Reds are prepared to pay a large amount to land the England international.

As reported in the broadsheet:

Liverpool are refusing to be scared off by Arsenal’s £35million valuation of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain as Jurgen Klopp steps up his pursuit of the unsettled England midfielder.

Were such an offer to be tabled, Arsenal would surely bite Liverpool’s hand off. The Ox is out of contract at the end of next season, and that offer would likely prove impossible to turn down.

But is he worth it?

The Telegraph fail to specify how Klopp would like to fit Oxlade-Chamberlain into his team.

Liverpool seem to have quite a lot of midfielders on their books, and it’s unclear which position the Ox would fill in the team considering Adam Lallana, Jordan Henderson, Sadi oMane, Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino all seem to be starters if fit.

Fans have also been taken aback by the transfer story.
