Ox Snubs Chelsea for £40 million Move to Liverpool

  • Arsenal had agreed terms with Chelsea 
  • Liverpool was Oxlade-Chamberlain’s first choice
  • England player will be in central midfield for Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool have pulled off a shock £40 million hijack by agreeing a deal with Arsenal for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain right under Chelsea’s noses.

The Ox was expected to swap the Emirates for Stamford Bridge – but now he’s on his way to Anfield.

Sources tell Football.com that the reason is that Reds boss promised the player a spot in the heart of his midfield while Antonio Conte wanted him to play wing back at Chelsea.

Oxlade-Chamberlain is now set to miss England’s trip to Malta on Friday to complete a medical at Anfield.
