Will Oxlade-Chamberlain fulfill his potential at Liverpool after £40m move?

Will Oxlade-Chamberlain fulfill his potential at Liverpool after £40m move?

The Reds spent an initial £35m on deadline day to sign Oxlade-Chamberlain, who chose Anfield as "the next stage of my ongoing development" after six years at Arsenal.

The Ox has started all four of Arsenal's game this season but in the system that plays three at the back he's been playing further down the pitch than he's perhaps used to.

Oxlade-Chamberlain, who was also wanted by Chelsea, has penned a five-year contract with the Merseyside club.

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.

Aaron Ramsey nearly caused controversy when he used #shaambles on social media in response to Arsenal selling Alex Oxlade Chamberlain.

Oxlade-Chamberlain's decision to reject Chelsea for Liverpool is reportedly due to his desire to permanently play in a central midfield role having featured in a variety of different positions under Wenger since 2011.

Six years into his Arsenal career, Oxlade-Chamberlain still didn't have a well-defined position and rarely had a regular starting job until Wenger discovered - nearly by accident - that he was quite good as a right wing-back.

Oxlade-Chamberlain sent out this message on Twitter this morning.

Gary Neville has been speaking about the transfer, and while he wasn't as strong on the deal as I have been, the former Manchester United defender seems surprised by it.

Aurier's transfer to Tottenham was held up because there were complications regarding the defender securing a work permit because he was sentenced to two months in prison past year for resisting arrest after leaving a Paris nightclub.

"I don't think he will play every single week, but with the Premier League and Champions League he will be an asset for them".

Aurier appealed against the sentence and never went to prison.
