Liverpool told to U-turn on Oxlade-Chamberlain after journalist's transfer reveal - Robinson

Paul Robinson is adamant Liverpool should keep hold of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain this summer.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Spurs and England goalkeeper heaped praise on the “talented” 27-year-old who had a “real impact” at Anfield when he first arrived.

Kevin Palmer has reported in the Sunday World that Oxlade-Chamberlain is one of four senior players who could be sold by the Reds this summer.

The centre-midfielder’s time on Merseyside has been hampered with injury and he has made just 12 appearances across all competitions this season.

He has two-and-a-half years remaining on his contract at Anfield, having last renewed terms in August 2019.

When asked if it would be a mistake to sell Oxlade-Chamberlain, Robinson told Football Insider: “I really rate him, I think he is a very talented player.

“He had a real impact at Liverpool when he first came in.

“You have got to remember that Wijnaldum is likely to leave, Henderson and Milner are another year older, Thiago is not at his best and Keita cannot put a run of games together.

“If they let Oxlade-Chamberlain go as well you are all of a sudden talking about a huge overhaul of that squad.

“There is an opportunity for Oxlade-Chamberlain to play more if Wijnaldum leaves but he has not been used despite all of the injuries they have suffered this season. I would have expected him to play more.”
