How Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's ex-Arsenal teammates reacted to his Liverpool move

Alex Oxlade Chamberlain has left the club on transfer deadline day and joined rivals Liverpool.

But his biggest problem at Arsenal has been an inability to hold down a position in the Gunners' team, especially as he'd like to play central and he's mostly used as a wing-back these days. A record which he has improved at Arsenal with 72 goals in 145 games in all competitions, almost averaging a goal every other game.

Liverpool said Oxlade-Chamberlain, 24, had signed a "long-term contract", which is thought to be a five-year deal.

Having made nearly 200 appearances across all competitions for the Gunners, scoring 20 goals in the process, many of his ex-teammates have taken to social media and wished the England worldwide well for the future. I don't think he will play every single week, but with the Premier League and Champions League demands, he will be an asset for them.

"After six years, three FA Cup wins and countless incredible memories, the time has come for me to move on from Arsenal", the midfielder wrote on Twitter.

The report also claimed Liverpool are still chasing Virgil van Dijk's signature from Southampton, with many English publications tipping the deal to be finalised before deadline.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has been a target for Chelsea but it is believed Liverpool has always been the player's preferred destination, and a deal is on the verge of going through after the two clubs agreed a fee.

"I rate him highly and he's one of the players who is on his way up", Wenger said earlier this month.

Aurier appealed against the sentence and never went to prison.

Arsene Wenger had insisted that the 24-year-old was "100 per cent" certain to stay at the Emirates Stadium for one more season, even though his contract was due to expire next summer.
