Liverpool Complete Oxlade-Chamberlain Signing from Arsenal

Liverpool FC have completed the signing of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain from Arsenal after the player turned down a move to join Chelsea.

The England international penned a long-term contract with the Reds after a medical was conducted at St George’s Park, where the 24-year-old Chamberlain is currently on duty with his country.

Oxlade-Chamberlain made 132 Premier League appearances for the Gunners during his six years in north London, and has 27 caps for the Three Lions to date.

The midfielder, the club’s fourth signing of the summer, bolsters Jürgen Klopp’s squad as Liverpool prepare to compete in three domestic competitions and the Champions League.

In a message to Reds fans after sealing the move, Oxlade-Chamberlain said: “I’m currently away with England, so I’m at St George’s Park.

Oxlade-Chamberlain was the biggest transfer on deadline day after completing a £35million switch from Arsenal to Liverpool.

His move raised a few eyebrows after it was revealed he turned down more money at Arsenal in favour of working with Jurgen Klopp at Anfield.

The 24-year-old has struggled to live up to expectations during his time at the Emirates.

But Sinclair, speaking on BBC’s Football Focus, believes Chamberlain is capable of becoming a key member to Klopp’s plans at Liverpool.

“Firstly, I’m delighted to have signed for Liverpool and a big thank-you to everyone here at the FA that has made this possible, using the facilities. It has been a massive help.

“I’m not going to say too much today; I’m here with England and we’ve got two big games coming up, so I want to focus on them.”
