Liverpool on Thursday confirmed the signing of England midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain from Arsenal. This is Jurgen Klopp’s fifth summer signing.

The 24-year-old has put pen to paper on a five-year contract with the Reds, following Dominic Solanke, Mohamed Salah, Andrew Robertson and Naby Keita to Anfield.

Liverpool opened talks with Arsenal on Wednesday afternoon, quickly agreeing a deal reportedly worth £35 million, with the midfielder earning £120,000-a-week.

Oxlade-Chamberlain is currently with the England squad for the international break, but will link up with Klopp’s side ahead of their clash with Man City on September 9.

He made his breakthrough with Southampton in 2010, playing a key role in their promotion to the Championship before joining the Gunners ahead of 2011/12.

But failing to tie down a regular position under Arsene Wenger, instead employed in a utility role, Oxlade-Chamberlain pushed for a move this summer.

He had one year left on his deal at the Emirates Stadium, and had also attracted interest from Chelsea, who agreed a similar fee with Arsenal earlier this week.

Turning down the Premier League champions, Oxlade-Chamberlain reiterated his desire to work under Klopp on Merseyside.

He joins England team-mates Jordan Henderson and Adam Lallana among Klopp’s options in midfield, along with Philippe Coutinho, Emre Can, Georginio Wijnaldum and James Milner.

Oxlade-Chamberlain is yet to be given a squad number at Liverpool.
