BBC pundit claims 24-year-old has turned corner at Liverpool FC
The Spurs legend believes Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has turned a corner at Liverpool FC
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is starting to turn a corner at Liverpool FC, according to Garth Crooks.
Liverpool completed an audacious £40m swoop to sign Oxlade-Chamberlain from Arsenal in the summer transfer window.
Oxlade-Chamberlain opted to move to Liverpool FC ahead of interest from defending Premier League champions Chelsea FC.
He turned down the chance to sign a new long-term deal with Arsenal to kick-start his top-flight career at another top club.
The 24-year-old attracted some criticism for failing to kick on at Arsenal team after initially impressing following his move from Southampton in 2010.
The England international made a brilliant assist to tee up Mohamed Salah for Liverpool FC’s second goal in a 4-1 win over West Ham United at Anfield last weekend.
Former Spurs forward Crooks has been impressed with Oxlade-Chamberlain’s steady improvement at Anfield over the past few months.
“It’s starting to happen. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is beginning to look like a player again,” Crooks told BBC Sport.
“There is no fear of the big stage in this lad. I think the only thing that is frightening about this player is just how good he could be at Anfield.”
Oxlade-Chamberlain has scored three goals and has made four assists in 15 appearances in the Premier League this term.
The England star opened his Premier League account for Liverpool with a goal in a 4-1 win at West Ham United back in October.
