Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been pictured in a Liverpool kit as his move to Anfield edges closer.
The 24-year-old is expected to join the Merseyside club before the transfer deadline after a fee of around £40million was agreed on Wednesday.
Oxlade-Chamberlain had been expected to join Chelsea, but rejected a move to the Premier League champions as he wishes for more opportunities as a central midfielder.
Liverpool moved quickly to agree terms with Arsenal after Chelsea abandoned their interest, with Oxlade-Chamberlain having previously stated that he wishes to emulate Steven Gerrard. Which is cute.
The player is on international duty with England this week, but underwent a medical at St. George’s Park on Wednesday evening.
Oxlade-Chamberlain was pictured wearing a Liverpool training kit, because deadline day is a wonderful thing.
