Medical done : Alex Oxlade Chamberlain spotted in Liverpool training gear

Alex Oxlade Chamberlain

Looks like Alex Oxlade Chamberlain is on the verge of a permanent move to Liverpool in a deal worth £40m with addons and performance related bonuses according to Sky Sports Transfer Central .

The England international has reportedly completed his medical at England training center at St. George’s Park.

Previously Arsenal had reportedly agreed a deal of the same amount with Chelsea with the player rejecting the move due to lack of assurances at being afforded a central midfield role in the team.

Alex Oxlade Chamberlain has made 132 appearances for the Gunners in the Premier League scoring 9 goals in the process during his 6 year stint at the club.

Now it seems his time at the club is over with his contract set to expire at the end of the season and the player refusing a 180k per week package at the club.

A picture of him in Liverpool training gears has been leaked on twitter which more or less confirms the move for us.

Clearly as mentioned the medical has indeed gone well and Arsenal have indeed sanctioned a move for the player whom Arsene Wenger wanted to build the future Arsenal team around.

Correspondents for Sky Sports Kaveh Solhekol also reported confirmed news about the move explaining why Alex Oxlade Chamberlain rejected Chelsea and choose Liverpool saying :

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.
