As it appears Arsenal are considering increase Oxlade-Chamberlain weekly wages to fend-off interest from suitors, we take a look at Wolfsburg superstar Jakub Blaszczykowski and two others Liverpool can invest on this summer.
Jurgen Klopp’s first summer with Liverpool shows on how he intends to spend the transfer kitty in his time at Anfield. So, it has been easier for the Reds fans to differentiate genuine rumours from fairy tales. One such rumuors that has to be true is Arsenal’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain linked with Liverpool. The England international will be out of contract with the Gunners at the end of next season but there’ve been reports recently claiming the North London side are considering to increase his weekly-wages to fend-off interest. The Reds are one of the few clubs that are ready to spend £35m on him this summer.
With reports now suggesting Klopp could miss out on signing him at the end of the current season, this might push the German boss into transfer market for another versatile player to add to his rank. The ‘Ox’ can play as a part of the midfield three or on the wing and there are very few players available in the transfer marker who can replace such a star. Below are three alternatives he could invest on having lost Chamberlain to Arsenal already:
Jakub Blaszczykowski (Wolfsburg)
Jakub Blaszczykowski has constantly been linked with a move to Anfield. Blaszczykowski is one of the most versatile players in the Bundesliga, the Poland international has not been in great form this season but can be utilized in a variety of roles at Anfield and at 31, Liverpool could benefit from his experience. This season, he has 3 assists to his name in 27 games across all competition but playing under Klopp might help him get back to his best.
Felipe Anderson (Lazio)
Here is another that was linked with Liverpool last summer, the Brazilian starlet is one of the most versatile and constant player in Serie A at the moment and would be an ideal option for Liverpool. Anderson can play as a part of the midfield three and also as an outright winger and his versatility can help solve a couple of problems at Liverpool. Scoring just 4 goals and a record of 13 assists in all competition this season, Anderson’s season has not really been impressive but could improve Jurgen Klopp squad instantly.
Isco (Real Madrid)
The Spaniard is among the best in Spain at the moment but finding it difficult to nail a regular starting role under Zinedine Zidane at Bernabeu. With hope of Champions League football for Liverpool, Isco would be a guarantee starter under Jurgen Klopp if he could move to the Premier League this summer. The Reds have reportedly met with the Spaniard agent and father recently in attempt to lure him to England and he’s such a player Klopp will love to have in his rank. Isco has the ability to dictate terms in the midfield and can also play an attacking role when needed, making him a perfect option for the Merseyside.
