Exclusive: West Ham make fresh approach to sign £18million Liverpool star

Liverpool do not want to sell Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain this summer despite being approached again by West Ham United regarding selling the English midfielder.

The former Arsenal star has had an unfortunate time at Liverpool, with injuries making it so that he has battled for any real kind of match rhythm.

Despite his staccato-esque career with the club so far, Jurgen Klopp has no plans to sell him and views him as an integral part of his squad, valuing his versatility and hard work.

Anfield Central sources have been learned that West Ham have once again approached the Reds about signing Chamberlain, with David Moyes of the belief he can succeed at the London club.

The former Everton and Manchester United manager first approached Liverpool about Chamberlain at the start of April, with the Reds initially saying they were not considering outgoings until the end of the season.

Now, however, the message from the club is that Chamberlain is not for sale and unless he personally asks to leave, he will remain at Liverpool and will report for pre-season at Kirkby on 12th July.

Given Liverpool’s unwillingness to sell the Ox, we’re unsure how much he is valued at but Transfermarkt claims he is worth £18million.

Jesse Lingard’s renaissance with the Hammers is a good example of what talented players battling for game time at big clubs can do if given the chance to play in the right system with the right teammates.

The stars really aligned for the 28-year-old since January as he has scored 9 goals and assisted 5 since joining West Ham on loan.
