The 23-year-old has 12 months to run on his existing deal at the Emirates and is yet to hold discussions over an extension.

Jurgen Klopp is a huge fan of the midfielder and the Reds have already held initial talks with Oxlade-Chamberlain’s representatives.

Liverpool hope to lure Oxlade-Chamberlain to the club by promising him a central midfield role and the Daily Express claim they are willing to pay up to £40m to sign him.

That would eclipse the £35m the Merseyside giants paid for Andy Carroll in 2011 but they need to convince Oxlade-Chamberlain to make the move first.

The Gunners remain hopeful of agreeing on a new contract with the midfielder but Oxlade-Chamberlain has reservations over his position in the side.

Should he show no signs of signing a new deal, Arsenal will look to prise as big a fee as possible for Oxlade-Chamberlain from Liverpool.

I like Oxlade-Chamberlain but our crying need is for a wide player and if he only wants to play central midfield then there are better options for that position already at the club. If he would accept playing wide initially and moving central later in his career then it would be worth taking him though £40 million seems a bit steep.

I don’t think this player would set the pulses racing among many LFC supporters. Chamberlain is average at best and we already have far better midfield players imo. We need to be setting our sights higher than this as we did with vvd and salah, even though both of those transfer seem to be gone by the wayside now.

He’s also had so many injuries for a young player which is a worry. Watching him play central for England vs France was very underwhelming, he was wandering all over the place. There seems to be a decent player in him somewhere and he certainly has his moments but I just can’t see him producing on a regular basis, especially under Klopp’s very intensive style of play.

It looks like we are back in for Salah so Ox seems an unlikely acquisition. I’m ok with Salah except for the fact he will be away for the African Cup at the same time as Mane in 2019 so we will be back in the same situation as last season unless one of our young wingers develops in the meantime.
