Chamberlain’s future at the Emirates has been thrown into doubt as he has just 12 months left on his current contract.

The Ox has grown increasingly frustrated with life at the Gunners over his contract situation and lack of playing time.

The 23-year-old started just 16 Premier League matches last season and a host of league rivals, including Chelsea, are keeping close tabs.

But it appears Jurgen Klopp’s side are in pole position to land his signature having been long-term admirers of the player according to the Independent.

With the threat of losing Oxlade-Chamberlain for nothing in a years time, it is believed a fee of around £25million will be enough to secure his signature.

And he may not be the only player leaving the club this summer as Wenger plans a shake up of his faltering squad.

Olivier Giroud has been linked with a switch to Marseille whilst Jack Wilshere’s future looks bleak at the Emirates having returned from a loan spell at Bournemouth.
