Merseyside giant Liverpool have reportedly agreed on a £40million deal with rivals Arsenal to secure the services of winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
The Englishman on Tuesday rejected a transfer to Chelsea in the hope that the Reds would join the race for the 24-year-old versatile midfielder.
According to the BBC, the Gunners had agreed on a £40m transfer fee with Chelsea, and Klopp’s team have matched that bid.
The versatile midfielder will undergo a medical examination at England’s St George’s Park training camp tonight ahead of penning a contract for Liverpool.
The Ox’s move will likely end Liverpool’s interest in Monaco star Thomas Lemar, who could now remain with the French Ligue 1 champions.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s sports company look to have confirmed his transfer to Anfield on Social media before the tweet was hastily deleted.
The North London club are trying to block interest for Chile international forward Alexis Sanchez but Premier League rivals Manchester City are hopeful of signing him on a £70m deal with less than 24 hours to go in the summer transfer window.
Arsenal will hold out for England international forward Raheem Sterling in return, but Manchester City’s bid could prove too good to turn down.
