Liverpool boss Klopp rethinks Oxlade-Chamberlain sale plans


Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is set to block Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain from leaving this summer.

AS Monaco are in talks over a £17m deal for Reds teammate Takumi Minamino.

Minamino's adviser has been in Europe to broker the 27-year-old's departure from Anfield, with Monaco his chosen destination.

The Mirror says Minamino's departure means it is unlikely that Klopp will allow Oxlade-Chamberlain to leave.

The plan is for the club to look to strengthen their midfield next summer when Oxlade-Chamberlain, Naby Keita and James Milner will all be out of contract.

Oxlade-Chamberlain made just 17 appearances last season, but Klopp was impressed with his influence and attitude when Naby Keita departed to the AFCON. And the message has already been relayed to the midfielder that he is a required player for next season.
