Liverpool’s relationship with Arsenal in terms of transfers has been strained to say the least following the Luis Suarez saga of 2013, but those avenues could soon be opened up again in the summer.

According to James Pearce in the Liverpool Echo’s Anfield Extra, the Reds are interested in being kept up to speed with the latest developments surrounding the future of Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Reports have emerged in the last 24 hours that the versatile Englishman is eager to leave the Emirates in the summer and it seems that Liverpool are keen on signing him.

With his contract expiring at the end of next season and no progression in talks over a new deal, the 23-year-old is seeking a fresh start in pastures new and Anfield could be the best place for him to fulfil his potential.

Able to play on the wings or in a central role, Oxlade-Chamberlain has struggled win injuries during his Arsenal career but has always flashed incredible ability in brief moments and spells.

Pearce states he expected Liverpool to make an enquiry to sign the £30m-rated midfielder if he does decide to leave north London.
