Campbell salutes Oxlade-Chamberlain after Insider's 'terrific' West Ham transfer update
Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain would be a “terrific signing” for West Ham if he stays fit, according to Kevin Campbell.
However, the former Arsenal and Everton striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, claimed the 27-year-old’s injury record will be a “big concern” for David Moyes.
According to ExWHUemployee, speaking on The West Ham Way podcast (July 24th), the Irons could make a move to sign the centre-midfielder on loan.
Oxlade-Chamberlain struggled for game time in the 2020-21 campaign, having endured a terrible time with injuries since arriving to Anfield in August 2017.
The next year could be pivotal in the career the 35-times England international, who has two years remaining on his contract with the Reds.

“The way West Ham are playing at the moment, on the break, will suit him down to the ground. It is quick, inventive and it’s jet-paced. One thing is for sure, Oxlade-Chamberlain can play like that.
“He has suffered too many injuries though. His availability would be a big concern for me if I’m David Moyes.
“If he stays fit he could turn out to be a terrific signing but there’s definitely an element of risk there.”
Speaking on West Ham’s transfer plans last week, Moyes said: “We need to get more competition, that’s the important thing if we want to keep the standards up.
“We’ll find out what we can do in the future but we’ve got no great update at all.”
