Liverpool ready to release midfielder next summer
Liverpool are prepared to release midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain when his contract expires next summer.
The England international has been with the Reds for the past five-and-a-half years, but has played sparingly amid several injuries.
He is currently nursing after long-term setback, and Football Insider claim that this could be his final season with the Reds.
The former Arsenal man is currently out with a serious hamstring injury, and there appears no return date at the current point.
Aside from Oxlade-Chamberlain, Naby Keita, James Milner and Roberto Firmino are also in the last year of their deals.
Among the trio, Firmino seems more likelier to pen a new deal despite the fact that he is now the club's second-choice striker.
Keita, on the other hand, wants assurance of regular game time which seems unlikely with the fierce competition for places.
The Guinea star has been linked with a Bosman move to Borussia Dortmund. They have made contact with his agent.
