Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could have a resurgence like Jesse Lingard if he signs for West Ham.
That’s according to Sunderland legend Kevin Phillips, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the midfielder’s future.
A West Ham source has told Football Insider the club have made third-party contact over the possibility of signing Oxlade-Chamberlain.
It is believed Liverpool are willing to listen to offers for their midfielder and value him around the £22million mark.
Oxlade-Chamberlain, 27, has been limited to just 12 Premier League appearances this season.
A knee injury meant he missed The Reds’ first 11 league games of the campaign.
The midfielder only has 286 minutes of action to his name in all competitions this year.
Phillips claims Oxlade-Chamberlain could follow in the footsteps of Lingard and experience a resurgence at the London Stadium.
When asked if a move to West Ham would suit all parties, Phillips told Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, “Yeah, it could be a great signing.
“Look at Lingard, look what David Moyes has done to him. I’m not saying it’s all Moyes, the player has to turn up and play.
“If Oxlade-Chamberlain was to come in he could go straight into that position if Lingard wasn’t to sign.
“West Ham are a club on the up. We know when the Ox is on his game and he’s firing, he’s a handful.
“He’s a player who needs to go somewhere and play regularly at this stage of his career. West Ham could be a good option for him.”
“The Ox” has helped Liverpool win Champions League and Premier League titles during his four years at the club.
One of his appearances this season came at the London Stadium as he played 10 minutes in Liverpool’s 3-1 win.
