The midfielder would be Chelsea's fifth major signing of the summer following the arrivals of striker Alvaro Morata, goalkeeper Willy Caballero, defender Antonio Rudiger and midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko.

Arsenal had agreed a £40m deal with the Blues and Liverpool have matched that offer, according to the BBC.

However, the news outlet says this morning that the 24-year-old has now rejected the proposed move to Chelsea as he would prefer to join Liverpool to work under Jurgen Klopp at Anfield.

He is also desperate to secure playing time in central midfield, which is where he has always seen as his best position, despite playing on the wing for Arsenal and, most recently, wing-back.

Oxlade-Chamberlain possesses numerous hallmarks one would associate with a player favoured by Reds manager Jurgen Klopp and boasts a high work rate to go along with his malleable set of skills.

ARSENAL Football Club has not exactly gotten off to its best start ever in English Premier League history, getting smashed 4-0 by Liverpool at Anfield last Sunday.

Sources have also told ESPN FC that Oxlade-Chamberlain, 24, is holding out for a move to Liverpool, with the Reds interested in signing the England global, as originally reported by the BBC.

Liverpool have opened talks with Arsenal over a deal for midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger opted to sell Oxlade-Chamberlain because the former Southampton player would have been out of contract and eligible to leave on a free transfer at the end of the season.

Oxlade-Chamberlain is now training with England during the global break while his Chelsea medical evaluation could take place at the English training center.
