Oxlade-Chamberlain having Liverpool medical

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is currently undergoing Liverpool medical after the Anfield club agreed a fee of £35m for the Arsenal midfielder on Wednesday.

According to Sky Sports, Oxlade-Chamberlain, who is currently away on international duty with England, is undergoing a medical at St George's Park ahead of his move to Anfield.

Liverpool will pay a fee of £35m for Oxlade-Chamberlain - the same figure that was previously agreed with Chelsea for the versatile midfielder.

The former Southampton youngster turned down a new improved deal at Arsenal earlier this month which would have seen him earn £180,000 a week.

Arsenal agreed a deal with Chelsea for Oxlade-Chamberlain earlier this week but the midfielder rejected the chance to join the Blues in favour of a move to Anfield.

News of the deal will come as a major blow to Gunners boss Arsene Wenger, who urged Oxlade-Chamberlain to commit his future to Arsenal last week.
