Liverpool: Klopp must let Oxlade-Chamberlain go this summer

Jurgen Klopp has always kept his squad tight in his journey at Liverpool but we’re expecting to see big changes this summer as the German coach reaches his seventh year in charge, and some players that have been involved in the majority of the success could be moved on to make way for fresh legs.

The club has been linked with several players already ahead of the summer transfer window with Calvin Ramsay, Fabio Carvalho, Aurelien Tchouameni and Arnaut Danjuma all speculated to make a move to Anfield, which means there will likely be outgoings to accommodate.

With that being said, one player who is likely set for the chop after a five-year spell is Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

The 28-year-old has found himself further pushed out of the match-day squads over this season in particular as he falls further down the pecking order, with the star not featuring in the last six Premier League squad selections despite making 29 appearances in all competitions, scoring three goals and assisting twice.

However, Klopp clearly doesn’t feel that the midfielder has enough to offer the team in the business end of the season, with Liverpool desperately trying to compete with Manchester City to win the Premier League title this season, sitting three points behind with just two games to go.

Despite his goal contributions this term, Oxlade-Chamberlain has struggled to impose himself on opponents during his opportunities to play, losing the ball every 6.3 minutes in his league performances, and this unnerving control of the ball in the centre of the pitch has clearly not gone unnoticed by his manager.

According to SofaScore, the former Arsenal star has only won 29% of his aerial duels and has lost the majority of his ground duels (55%) too, making only 31.6 touches and 0.6 key passes per game, proving that he has been largely ineffective in his performances without his five goal contributions.

Following his recent snubs to join the side on match day it has been reported that Oxlade-Chamberlain “fears” for his future at Anfield with one year left on his contract, and the club are set to adopt a “wait and see” approach according to Daily Mail.

Now it could be the perfect time to go and seek out first-team football elsewhere as he still has plenty of years left to play and make an impact on another team However, sadly it looks like his time on Merseyside is coming to an end with Klopp favouring others for selection.
