Do Not Sell My Personal Information

James Pearce’s Liverpool update leaves more questions than answers

Liverpool have made two massive signings this week in the shape of Diogo Jota and Thiago, but in order to finance those deals, they may have to sell some players.

It’s been speculated for a long time that the likes of Marko Grujic and Harry Wilson could leave the club before the end of the window, while Rhian Brewster continues to be linked with a move away.

However, one shock exit has been rumoured over the weekend with Wolves linked with a move for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, but within hours of the story emerging James Pearce was quick to put any speculation to bed.

What’s been said then?

The Athletic journalist posted a tweet clearing up what he knows about Oxlade-Chamberlain’s situation, stating that he will not be leaving the club and that he still has a very important role to play in Jurgen Klopp’s side this season.

More questions than answers

Pearce is very well connected at Liverpool, so we aren’t going to question the legitimacy of the information he is providing, but we do have to wonder how Oxlade-Chamberlain is going to play a key role with the Reds this term.

How much did Liverpool pay to sign Takumi Minamino from Red Bull Salzburg?

The wing positions are already taken with Mo Salah, Sadio Mane, Diogo Jota and Xherdan Shaqiri all taking up spots there.

The former Arsenal man has transitioned into the midfield in recent years, those spots are just as competitive with Thiago Alcantara, FWA Player of the Year Jordan Henderson and Naby Keita already vying for those spots, and that’s before you even mention Curtis Jones who seems to be in line for more first-team minutes this season.

It will be interesting to see how Oxlade-Chamberlain is utilised this term because right now we can’t quite figure out what Klopp’s plans for him might be, especially if he has a key role to play.
