Oxlade-Chamberlain has scored 20 goals in 194 appearances for the Gunners since 2011 but the 23-year-old winger is being heavily linked with a move away from the Emirates ahead of the 2017/18 campaign.
The Daily Mirror claim Liverpool chiefs have made a direct enquiry to Arsenal over the availability of Oxlade-Chamberlain, with the north London club increasingly resigned to losing the Englishman in the coming months.
It’s understood Arsenal rejected the Reds’ initial advances but are considering cashing in on the ex-Southampton man who is out of contract in the summer of 2018 – and Liverpool know their rivals are in a weak position.
The Merseyside outfit are desperate to steal a march on the likes of Manchester City and Chelsea, with both clubs also weighing up moves for Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Liverpool are lining up a bid in the region of £25million for the England international and it’s believed Arsenal are ready to sell for around this price.
