West Ham preparing move for Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain
Liverpool’s midfielder, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, has become the latest name to be linked with West Ham.
According to multiple reports emanating from England, West Ham are preparing move for Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. He has been subject to interest from various Premier League clubs.
The England international was signed by Liverpool in August 2017 from Arsenal for a fee of 38 million euros. He has a contract until 2023 with the club.
The midfielder has banged in three goals and provided three assists in 29 matches last term on all fronts.
Oxlade-Chamberlain has also left his mark at the international stage after netting seven goals in 35 senior appearances for the England national team.
The England international is believed to be available for transfer, with David Moyes now keen to bring him to West Ham.
The Hammers have earmarked Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain as their target, with David Moyes being a ‘huge admirer’ of the player. Moyes is a firm fan of Liverpool midfielder and West Ham could make a move for the player if the financial aspect makes sense.
West Ham are desperate to make an impact in the summer transfer window.
The former Arsenal man will add more quality to West Ham’s midfield.
According to the report, “West Ham United are interested in Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. The Mirror says West Ham are preparing to make a £10m offer for the England international. The Hammers are turning to Oxlade-Chamberlain after seeing free agent Jesse Lingard enter talks with Nottingham Forest. Having spent five years at Anfield, the 28-year-old has less than 12 months remaining on his contract and this season is likely to be his last with Liverpool. Oxlade-Chamberlain has rarely put together a consistent run of starts since his arrival from Arsenal even though he has racked up 133 appearances for the Reds, with injuries often putting paid to promising veins of form.”
Euro Football Rumours
The Reds are not in a position where they need to sell and would like to keep hold of the midfielder, but right offer may force the club to consider a deal.
If West Ham can agree on a fee with Liverpool, the deal should be easy to complete.
Good signing for West Ham?
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain stands as an excellent option for West Ham. He has all the skillset required to be a success story at West Ham. Therefore, it makes sense for David Moyes to step up his attempts to bring the England midfielder to Premier League side.
A move to West Ham is exactly what Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain needs to reignite his career, and we hope he is able to do just that.
It will be interesting to see if West Ham make their move for the 28-year-old in the coming days.
