According to Sky Sports, Liverpool target Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is “no closer” to signing a new deal with Arsenal and is edging closer to an exit this summer.

In what is turning into yet another Liverpool summer transfer saga, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s future is looking more and more likely to lie away from the Emirates Stadium.

Last night, John Cross, who is following Arsenal on their tour of Australia, reported that the Gunners are convinced that Chamberlain won’t leave this summer.

Arsenal are supposedly more interested in the contract situations of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez who are also entering the final years of their agreements with the Gunners.

Today, however, Sky intimate that with no improvement on Chamberlain’s contract stance, it looks all the more likely that his future lies elsewhere with a move on the cards for this summer.

Liverpool have already signed Dominic Solanke and Mohamed Salah this summer, with the latter arriving in a £36.9m deal from AS Roma.

While the Reds might have already added a new winger this summer, Chamberlain’s addition to the side would go a long way to strengthening the side’s depth ahead of a season with European football.

Sky Sports might indicate that a move is looking likely this summer for Chamberlain, but it remains to be seen whether or not he signs for Liverpool with Manchester City and Chelsea also reported as being interested.

That being said, Chamberlain is a player who admires Jürgen Klopp and would like to play under the German.
