Carragher: I’m ‘scratching my head’ over Ox to Liverpool

Jamie Carragher has expressed his doubts over Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s move to Liverpool.

Oxlade-Chamberlain completed his switch from Arsenal to Anfield on Thursday, with the Reds paying £35million for the player.

The England international, currently on duty with the Three Lions, briefly spoke about the move, while Jurgen Klopp explained his reasoning for signing him.

But Liverpool legend Carragher has his doubts over the deal, which is expected to see Oxlade-Chamberlain given more opportunities in central midfield, as opposed to wing-back.

“He talks a lot about wanting to plays in central midfield, so that will be interesting to see how that one plays out because Liverpool have got five or six central midfielders who are really good,” he told Sky Sports.

“I am not sure if Oxlade-Chamberlain would get in that midfield three if everyone is fit. You still have Coutinho and Lallana to come back to the players who performed so well at the weekend. So it remains to be seen how that one will work.

“He is a good player for the squad at this moment, but central midfield, I am still scratching my head on that one. But with Jurgen Klopp buying him with only 12 months left on his contract, there must certainly be a plan in place for where he is going to play and fit in.

“I am interested to see how that one works out.”
