Arsenal slap £35m price tag on 23-year-old Liverpool transfer target

Liverpool will reportedly continue their chase of Arsenal’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, notwithstanding the North Londoners putting a £35m price tag on him.

The Englishman is one of many Arsenal footballers whose futures are being negotiated due to an amount of contracts ticking down.
Oxlade-Chamberlain, who will reach the end of his current contract next summer, has struggled for a regular game time under coach Arsene Wenger this campaign.
Finally, the 23-year-old has started 12 Premier League matches and come on as a replacement in 13 more, and as reported by The Telegraph, Liverpool are hopeful of bringing the player’s price down.
The story adds that Oxlade-Chamberlain could be landed to the Reds due to head coach Jurgen Klopp being keen to sign more English talent to his team. The player joined The Gunners from Southampton in 2011.
Meanwhile,
Liverpool defender Alberto Moreno is expected to leave Liverpool in the summer with the team already asked for the left-back from Inter and AC Milan.
The Serie A duo head a list of sides to have made primary contact over the 24-year-old’s availability and Merseyside Reds wish to create upwards of £15 million for the Spain International on account of his age, as well as top-league and European experience.
Moreno, signed in August 2014 from Sevilla for £12m, played 91 games in his first two campaign since the move, however, has played just 15 in this season eight as starts.
James Milner has changed the full-back and, with Jurgen Klopp having the option of turning to Nathaniel Clyne to the left wing and the push to land Fulham wunderkind Ryan Sessegnon as a long-term option in the area, there appears slim chance of Moreno increasing his Liverpool run-outs.
He has two seasons left to run on his deal and is believed to favour a return to Spain, which would let his young family an easier acclimation manner, with La Liga also more adapted to his attacking abilities.
Given the interest in Moreno who has stayed professional this campaign, it is expected he will have a few options to weigh as he wants regular game-time.
