So impressed has Hector Bellerin been with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain this season, the Spaniard now also wants to exit Arsenal for the sake of his career.
This is a claim in the Guardian, who state the right-back is fed up of treading water at the Emirates and wants a new challenge – inspired by Ox’s progression under Jurgen Klopp.
Juventus are keen for his signature, while Barcelona are long-standing admirers having had him on the books as a teenager.
We’d suggest Bellerin should follow in Ox’s footsteps, but with Trent Alexander-Arnold, Nathaniel Clyne and Joe Gomez, we’re very well stocked at right-back!
Ox has put in some terrific performances for Liverpool, playing predominantly in his preferred midfield role, but it’s consistency he must now aim to deliver.
His second-half against West Ham was as good as his first-half was bad, for example.
The Englishman needs to get on the ball more and look to use his speed and tenacity to drive the team forward.
If he does this regularly, he’ll be a key player for years to come.
