Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been told he might have to leave Liverpool if he’s serious about playing regular first-team football.

The midfielder joined the Reds from Arsenal in August 2017 and has been a part of Liverpool’s Premier League and Champions League-winning squads.

This season hasn’t gone well for Oxlade-Chamberlain and Liverpool, however

He became a regular starter during his first season at Anfield before an ACL injury sustained in April 2018 sidelined him for over a year.

It’s been an uphill struggle for the 27-year-old to make his way back in the team, particularly with Liverpool developing into one of the world’s best during his spell on the sidelines.

Liverpool have struggled in recent months but it’s not heeded more opportunities for Oxlade-Chamberlain, who’s started just twice this season.

He’s on the bench for the Reds’ clash at home to Everton on Saturday evening, which you can listen to LIVE on talkSPORT now.

Oxlade-Chamberlain’s contract lasts until 2023 but if he doesn’t get more chances to impress he may feel he wants to move on elsewhere.

And Liverpool legend John Barnes believes that’s an option Oxlade-Chamberlain ought to consider.

Barnes told Bonus Code Bets: “Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain hasn’t been a failure at Liverpool, he’s been part of a squad that’s won the Premier League and a Champions League. Yes, Liverpool paid £40million for him, but in today’s world, that isn’t a lot of money for a player.

“He’s been integral to the squad. He may not be one of the first XI all the time but in the last few years he hasn’t let the team down and I don’t see that as a failure at all. He’s been a great addition and helped Liverpool to the glory that they’ve achieved.

Barnes insists Oxlade-Chamberlain hasn’t failed at Liverpool

“Whether he then moves on because he wants to play regular football rather than staying at a club in which he won’t always start, he’ll have to decide that.

“Maybe he feels that having won the Premier League and the Champions League he wants to play football more regularly. His injuries have been a problem for him, although that’s nothing to do with his quality as a footballer.

“He’s different to Takumi Minamino, who’s has just arrived at Liverpool, as opposed to Oxlade-Chamberlain who’s been there for a few years.

“Those two players are in two different situations. I think Oxlade-Chamberlain may feel at this point in his career that he’s hungry to play football regularly, so might have to move on, but Minamino has only been at Liverpool for six months and so shouldn’t be making a decision like that as things don’t always work out straight away.”
