A number of players are set to leave Liverpool this summer.
Divock Origi is expected to leave Liverpool on a free transfer in June and is said to have already agreed a deal to AC Milan.
And there’s Takumi Minamino, who has only played 78 minutes in the Premier League all season.
The Japan international is another player who will definitely leave Anfield.
But the duo could well be joined by a certain Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
All three were dropped from the squad for the FA Cup semi-final against Manchester City this afternoon, summing up the latter’s demise on Merseyside.
The former Arsenal player joined Liverpool FC 40 million pounds in the summer of 2017.
But he’s now barely a squad player under Jurgen Klopp, having made just nine Premier League appearances since August 2020.
And that omission this afternoon is a hint that, like Origi and Minamino, Oxlade-Chamberlain may also leave Liverpool this summer.
And he should too.
At 28, the England international is in the prime of his footballing career and what a terrible waste it would be if he were to spend another valuable season on the bench.
Oxlade-Chamberlain is without a contract at Liverpool in the summer of 2023.
There will certainly be offers this summer and while he will never play for another club as big as the Reds, he could still land a decent move.
His talent has never been questioned and perhaps his next club can give him the renewed vitality he sorely needs.
With every game likely to be significant for Klopp until the end of the season, it’s very likely Oxlade-Chamberlain has already played his final game for the club – especially given this omission.
