Former Liverpool midfielder who Jurgen Klopp ‘loves’ ‘considering’ offer from foreign outfit – report

Posted by

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain left Liverpool as a free agent at the end of the season and is yet to find a new club despite interest in his services from both Aston Villa and Brentford.

A fresh report from the BBC claims that Turkish side Besiktas have offered the 29-year-old a two-year deal (with the option of a third).

The former Southampton and Arsenal man has not yet made a decision about where he’ll be plying his trade next term but he’s reportedly ‘considering’ the offer from the Istanbul-based outfit.

The report also adds that there is interest in the dynamic midfielder from clubs in Saudi Arabia.

On his day Oxlade-Chamberlain, a player who Jurgen Klopp admitted he ‘loves’ (as quoted by, is a huge talent but his time on Merseyside was hampered by injury.

He was a vital part of our squad when we reached the Champions League final in 2018 but unfortunately suffered a nasty knee injury during our semi-final defeat of Roma at Anfield.

His energy and drive from midfield means that he’d be a smart acquisition for any club – as long as he can remain injury-free.

It’ll be interesting to see whether the Ox seeks a fresh start abroad or whether he’s eager to continue his career in the Premier League.

Birmingham Live have claimed that our former No. 15 would prefer to remain in England.
