Liverpool can upgrade their midfield by letting fringe player leave after Fabrizio Romano update

Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could be set to leave this summer having already received approaches from other clubs.

The midfielder has been at the club since 2017 but has since become a fringe squad player.

Valued at £14.4M, he could be a bargain buy for another Premier League club this summer.

However, no ‘official offers’ are on the table as of yet, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The football reporter claimed that there has been interest in the midfielder, but, for now, at least, there’s little movement.

“As far as Jurgen Klopp is concerned, he doesn’t want many more departures this summer,” Romano said on his Daily Briefing with Caught Offside as quoted by Empire of the Kop.

He continued: “(Neco) Williams has joined Sadio Mane, Divock Origi and Takumi Minamino in leaving Anfield, so keeping other squad players like Oxlade-Chamberlain makes sense for the club.

“Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could be one to watch. He has received approaches, but there are no official offers on the Liverpool table yet.”

Liverpool could use the sale to raise funds and free up wages to bring in one of their midfield targets.

The Reds have been linked with the likes of Matheus Nunes, Jude Bellingham and Nicolo Barella so far this window.

In the Premier League, there are plenty of clubs who could not only afford Chamberlain but also give him regular minutes that he hasn’t ever had at Anfield.

With some clubs interested, it could be the likes of Newcastle and Aston Villa who could be two clubs where a move would make sense for example.

The former Arsenal player has featured 133 times for Liverpool scoring 17 goals and assisting 15 on his way to winning every trophy available at domestic level.

However, he only completed 90 minutes on five occasions last season with the majority of those starts coming in the EFL Cup.
