Liverpool sign Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for £35m

Liverpool have completed the £35m signing of England midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain from Arsenal.

The 24-year-old, who rejected a move to Chelsea on Tuesday after a fee had been agreed, joins on a five-year contract worth £120,000 a week.

Oxlade-Chamberlain, who was in the last year of his Arsenal contract, rejected a new deal worth up to £180,000 a week to stay at the Emirates.

He has started each of Arsenal’s four games so far this season.

Oxlade-Chamberlain made 198 appearances for Arsenal since joining them from Southampton in August 2011, scoring 20 goals.

“I know my choice might come as a surprise to many, and the decision to leave was tough after being a part of the club for so many years, but I feel that this move is right for the next stage in my ongoing development, ” he said in an Instagram post.
