Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has offered a slightly vague response when asked where he will play at Liverpool.

Oxlade-Chamberlain joined the Reds on transfer deadline day in a £35million move from Arsenal.

The England international was thought to be dissatisfied with playing as a wing-back in north London, and even rejected a move to Premier League champions Chelsea, who were thought to be offering a similar role.

One of the provisos of his move to Anfield was claimed to be a role in central midfield, but in discussing where he would like to play, Oxlade-Chamberlain was rather more vague.

“I’ve spoke about this for about six years — my whole career — where I’m going to be playing or where I’d like to play. I just say I’d like to be an attacking midfielder,” he told the club’s official website.

“I’ve spoke to the manager about this, there’s going to be a lot of positions [available] in this team: up front, because the wingers play a bit more inside, or the midfield.

“I wouldn’t like to put a label on it at this stage, I need to get a feel for how the team plays and obviously it’s for the manager to decide.

“But ultimately, I just want to be able to be an attacking influence and have that effect further up the pitch.

“Whether that’s from an attacking midfield position or one of the wider positions coming in, I’m not too fussed.”
