Latest revelation on why Arsenal sold Alex Chamberlain to Liverpool


It has been revealed that North London side Arsenal were forced to sell England international Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to Liverpool, according to reports.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain joined the Reds from the Emirates Stadium in the last summer transfer window after limited playing time, yet went to the Liverpool team as a regular where his potential was well showcased.

However, latest reports now reveal that the ambiguous clause in his deal from Southampton to the Gunners is the reason why he was not allowed to see enough games at North London side.

The clause spells that for every 20 minutes Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain plays, Southampton will earn £10,000 which was too much a financial burden for Arsenal.

No wonder former Gunners boss made use of the England international as an impact player who usually comes in from the bench to make a little impact without necessarily spending 20 minutes on the pitch.

However, the midfielder has been ruled out of action for the rest of the season after a serious injury sustained last year in the Champions League.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was a major part of the Jurgen Klopp’s team last season were able to make big impact and score goals to help the team finish second in the Premier League.
