The Ox set to be handed new Liverpool deal

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is set to be handed a one-year extension to his contract at Liverpool.

The England international returned to action in April, having spent a year on the sidelines after suffering a serious knee injury in 2018.

Having now completed his rehabilitation, the Mirror are reporting that Liverpool are set to reward the 25-year-old with a 12-month extension to his current contract, keeping him at Anfield until 2023.

The former Arsenal and Southampton midfielder made just two appearances for Jurgen Klopp’s side towards the end of last season, coming on as a substitute against Huddersfield and Wolves with the German cautious in his approach with the returning midfielder following his lengthy absence from first-team football.

The £35m signing is likely to be a key figure as Liverpool look to build on their success of last season, having been an unused substitute in the club’s Champions League final victory over Tottenham earlier this month.
