Paul Stewart has exclusively told This is Futbol that a club like West Ham could look into signing Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Having played just a handful of minutes in the Premier League last season, the £120,000-a-week ex- midfielder is deemed to be surplus to requirements at Anfield.

Is now the right time for Liverpool to sell Harry Wilson?

Yes

No

Oxlade-Chamberlain made just 17 appearances across all competitions, and therefore the Express believe that David Moyes could offer the 27-year-old a lifeline following a tricky few years with Liverpool due to injuries.

A serious knee injury in a Champions League game against Roma in April caused the midfielder to miss the entire -2019 campaign, and although he returned to fitness and helped the Reds win the Premier League, he’s never quite been a regular starter under Klopp.

Who has made the most appearances in Liverpool's club history?

But having shown glimpses that he’s still good enough to perform at this level, Stewart told This is Futbol that a move to the London Stadium could help the Englishman get his career back on track:

“Somebody like West Ham. I think he’s still got the ability to play in the Premier League if he stays fit.”

Whilst he’s managed to win the two biggest honours during his four years at Liverpool, it hasn’t quite gone the way that Oxlade-Chamberlain would have envisaged.

But at 27, the midfielder still has plenty to give, and a move to London Stadium would not only see him return to the capital but would see him contuining playing European football as the Hammers embark on their first-ever campaign in 2021-2022.
