Arsenal plot surprise move for £35m Liverpool star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Arsenal could be set for a shock swoop for their former player Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, after the midfield has struggled for game time at Liverpool.

Life on Merseyside had originally started well for Oxlade-Chamberlain, and he claimed a Champions League and Premier League success.

However, after a knee injury-plagued the start to his 20/21 campaign, Ox has only started four Liverpool games since.

And at the start of the 21/22 campaign, Ox had fallen behind Harvey Elliot and Curtis Jones in the Reds' pecking order.

The 28-year-old could be readying a return to Arsenal to kick-start his career, according to The Sun.

Oxlade-Chamberlain spent six years at the Emirates, after signing from Southampton, but he left in 2017 for £35million.

And Mikel Arteta is weighing up the possibility of a loan until the end of the season, with the option to make it permanent, for Oxlade-Chamberlain in January.

Ox and Arteta are no strangers to one another, and they played in the centre of the park alongside each other at Arsenal.

They both played a part in Arsenal's FA Cup double in 2014 and 2015.
