Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will be paid about £125,000 a week by Liverpool.— Kaveh Solhekol (@SkyKaveh) August 30, 2017
Turned down new Arsenal contract worth up to £180,000 a week
Well it seems the fact that he was a boyhood Liverpool fan seems to have weighed up in his mind while making the move. Alex Oxlade Chamberlain has won 3 F.A Cups during his time as the Emirates and 3 Community Shields, scoring the winner in one against Jose’s Chelsea which we fondly remember. Last season was his most productive in an Arsenal shirt and his switch to a wing back clearly seemed to bring out the best in him. The manager also seemed to like his new found talent in that role preferring to start him over Hector Bellerin in a number of matches till his injury. While i loathe to see him leave now that he was performing at his best, I do have sincere doubts about his ability to perform as good as he does now in a Central Midfield role with all the added responsibilities that comes with it. If hes leaving means that Arsenal manage to keep Alexis for the season while making up for the financial aspect of things. Its not too bad to get £40m for a player like him who until recently struggled to find his best position on the pitch. Lets hope his departure means that the surplus cash that Arsenal have made from their transfer dealings can finally be put in for some good use in bringing a fresh face into the club.
