Official – Liverpool Completes £35m Signing Of Oxlade-Chamberlain From Arsenal

Liverpool has completed the signing of England midfielder, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain from Arsenal on a five-year deal for £35m.

24-year-old Oxlade-Chamberlain, who was in the last year of his Arsenal contract and rejected a £180,000 a week new deal to stay at the Emirates, will earn a reported £120,000 a week at Liverpool.

Oxlade-Chamberlain joined Arsenal from Southampton in August 2011 making 198 appearances and scoring 20 times.

Speaking about the new addition, Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp to the club’s official website: “This is someone making a tough decision to leave one great club and come to another great club and I think he had many options, so to get him means I am delighted.”

“He didn’t make an easy decision but I think he made a great one to go on this journey with this squad of talented boys and our great supporters. I welcome him to the Liverpool family.” Klopp added.

Oxlade-Chamberlain becomes Liverpool’s fourth summer transfer signing following the moves of Mohamed Salah from Roma, full-back Andrew Robertson from Hull and striker Dominic Solanke from Chelsea.
