Report: Liverpool want Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain?

Liverpool have reportedly stepped up their interest to sign Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

The 22-year-old, whose contract at the Emirates is set to expire in 2018 and it is believed that the north Londoners are determined to start negotiations over his new terms.

However, ESPN have suggested that should the two parties fail to reach an agreement, the Merseyside club could be ready to lure the former Southampton youth star at Anfield.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is determined on re-shaping attacking department to Anfield and the England international is among his prime targets.

His arrival to the Merseyside outfit would make some sense, with the Reds having a number of skilled attacking wingers but few players with real talent to fill the void of Raheem Sterling.

With just nine premier league starts this season due to knee injury, Oxlade-Chamberlain was recently linked with a move to Manchester City.

Chamberlain joined the Gunners from Southampton in 2011, but struggled to make an impact at the Emirates this season.
