According to the Irish Mirror (21 July), West Ham are weighing up a £10million bid for the centre-midfielder.

 

David Moyes is looking to strengthen his midfield after missing out on Jesse Lingard to Nottingham Forest.

When asked by Football Insider if the Reds could afford to let Oxlade-Chamberlain leave without signing a replacement, Robinson said:

“I think Jurgen Klopp will be looking for Jones and Elliott to step up and play 30-odd games next season.

“That is why I think there is an opportunity for other teams to sign Oxlade-Chamberlain.

“It is also why Klopp has said he won’t go in for another midfielder in this window. It doesn’t look like they’ll sign a midfielder until next summer.

“The two young lads will play ahead of Oxlade-Chamberlain next season.

 

“I am sure the manager would consider that if West Ham bid for Oxlade-Chamberlain.”

Oxlade-Chamberlain contributed three goals and three assists in 29 appearances across all competitions last season.

 

Elliott and Jones made 11 and 27 appearances each respectively in the 2021-22 campaign.
