Phillips tips Oxlade-Chamberlain to 'go' next year as he's placed in Liverpool 'shop window'

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is putting Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain “in the shop window”, according to Kevin Phillips.

The 2000 European Golden Shoe winner, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, is adamant the 28-year-old will leave Anfield in 2022.

Oxlade-Chamberlain started back-to-back games for the first time this season on Sunday.

He produced an indifferent display at the London Stadium as Jurgen Klopp’s side were beaten 3-2 by West Ham.

His contract on Merseyside runs until the summer of 2023.

When asked by Football Insider for his thoughts on Oxlade-Chamberlain’s return to the starting XI, Phillips said:

“In my opinion, Jurgen Klopp is putting him in the shop window. Do I see him at Liverpool long term? No, I don’t.

“He has been there a while now. He has shown glimpses at times but he’s never really found that consistency.

“Now, it is about putting him in the shop window. I think he’ll go next year, whether it’s January or the summer. I think they’ll move him on to free up a space for somebody else to come in.

“He’s a wonderful player but his time at Liverpool is probably coming to an end.”

As quoted by the Independent, Klopp described Oxlade-Chamberlain as a Jekyll and Hyde-type player after the win over Atletico Madrid in midweek.

He said: “He had his ‘Oxlade-Chamberlain’ moments – good with the ball and all that kind of stuff – but we need ‘Mr Oxlade-Chamberlain’ as well, the mature one, the calm one, the closing one.”
