Reports making the round suggest Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is out to sign Arsenal star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby-Keita.

Jurgen Klopp has already splashed the cash on Roma star and ex-Chelsea winger Mohamed Salah and is reportedly ready to break the bank in signing Chamberlain who has rejected Arsenal final offer for a pay rise.

While Arsenal contract rebel Oxlade-Chamberlain is also a target for Premier League champions Chelsea.

But if Liverpool get their way, they will end up signing both players this summer.

“LFC reporter,” James Pearce said: “Oxlade-Chamberlain isn’t viewed as being the back-up option to Keita.

“Liverpool have interest in both and getting Keita wouldn’t necessarily mean they don’t pursue Oxlade-Chamberlain.

“The situation with Oxlade-Chamberlain is that Liverpool made an enquiry to Arsenal a while back and were told he wasn’t available. Clearly, a lot hinges on what happens over his contract.

“If the stand-off over a new deal continues then Arsenal will reluctantly sell. If they are listening to offers then I’d expect Liverpool to make one.

“What makes me doubt whether Oxlade-Chamberlain to Anfield will happen is guarantees over game time. I think he’d be an excellent squad player for Liverpool but I wouldn’t say he walked into the side.”

The 23-year-old has just a year left on his contract and is prepared to wait it out having failed to get assurances over first-team football.
