Liverpool and Leicester to battle over versatile midfielder

Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is a wanted man, with Liverpool and Leicester City to do battle to land his signature this summer, according to The Express.

The England international has fallen downy he pecking order at the Emirates Stadium and as such is no longer guaranteed a starting berth for the Gunners.

This has led to speculation over his future, with Oxlade-Chamberlain being tipped to leave North London in favour of a club where he will play week in, week out.

Leicester are looking to bolster their squad after qualifying for the Champions League, while Jurgen Klopp has identified midfield as an area to reinforce this summer at Anfield.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has struggled with injuries this season also, which have blighted his chances to play at Arsenal and ruled him out of Euro 2016 – but his place in Roy Hodgson’s squad was already under threat due to his lack of regular action with the Gunners.
