Arsenal have rejected an opening bid in the region of £30million from Liverpool for the transfer of Alex Oxlade Chamberlain.
According to reports from Standard Sport, Liverpool are willing to capitalise on Chamberlain’s preference for a move to Anfield to secure the services of the England international at a lower price compared to what Chelsea are offering.
Chamberlain, 24, reportedly prefers a switch to Anfield than Stamford Bridge because of his desire to play in central midfield instead of the right wing-back role offered by Chelsea’s Antonio Conte.
However, Arsenal are open to keeping Oxlade-Chamberlain if Liverpool are unwilling to meet their valuation of the winger and it now appears a possibility he could stay at Emirates Stadium and see out the final year of his contract should an agreement not be reached.
