VIDEO: Liverpool Fans Think Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Gave a Sly Hint of Where He Might Be Next Season

Thursday July 20th, 2017

Like fellow contract rebels Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, the future of Arsenal star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is currently up in the air.

The England international has been heavily linked with a move to Liverpool after failing to agree on a new deal with the Gunners and his comments in a video taken from their pre-season tour will only add fuel to that fire.

Well, they will if you take every phrase he utters literally. The 23-year-old was talking to Mohamed Elneny and during the interaction, he praised £37m Liverpool signing, Mohamed Salah.

So, Oxlade-Chamberlain thinks the former Chelsea and Roma man is the king of his country - in a footballing sense.

To be fair, the flying winger is easily Egypt's finest player, so what the Arsenal man is saying is actually correct, so linking him with a move to Jurgen Klopp's side because of it could be a tad foolish.

Still, the transfer market in the modern day is synonymous with rumours being created from virtually nothing. Thank you, internet.
