Liverpool midfielder is reportedly considering departing Anfield

Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is considering leaving Anfield, according to The Mirror's John Cross.

The report states that the Englishman is reluctant to leave the club. However, the report further adds that Oxlade-Chamberlain wants to play regular senior football.

The 28-year-old has only made two starts for Liverpool in the opening two months of the new season. Oxlade-Chamberlain is reportedly attracting interest from his former club - Arsenal.

ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT

Liverpool signed Oxlade-Chamberlain from Arsenal for a transfer fee of €38 million back in the summer of 2017.

The midfielder has gone on to score 14 goals and register 12 assists in 109 appearances for the Reds.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has also won four major trophies with Liverpool.

The Englishman has proven to be a decent signing for the club. With that being the case, it would be a bit of a shame if Oxlade-Chamberlain did depart Liverpool sometime soon.

But, with the likes of Jordan Henderson, Thiago Alcantara, Fabinho and Naby Keita ahead of Oxlade-Chamberlain, we can see why he might look for an opportunity elsewhere.

As we have already pointed out, the midfielder is only 28 years of age, so he is career is far from finished.

Oxlade-Chamberlain is contracted to the club until the summer of 2023.
