“He has always been a favourite”- Noel Whelan urges Liverpool to extend the contract of utility player.
Former Premier League star Noel Whelan believes Red’s sensational player Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain deserves a new contract at Liverpool following his fine form and recent run of good performances.
Oxlade-Chamberlain has been clinical for the reds scoring goals for Jurgen Klopp’s side in recent games. The 28-year-old midfielder has scored two goals in the last two premier league matches against Brentford and Crystal Palace.
Noel Whelan has now urged the Reds to offer Oxlade-Chamberlain a new deal since he always gives his 100% in the limited opportunity he gets within the team. Speaking exclusively to Football Insider.
He said: “Well, he’s putting himself in the shop window, but also in the frame for a new contract at Liverpool. He’s come back in and taken his opportunity with these players away at the African Cup of Nations.
“He has always been a favourite of Jurgen Klopp’s. He’s playing for the manager and the shirt. That just shows the type of character he is and what sort of person he is.”
He added: “He’ll gladly do his bit for the team and the club, whether that’s 90 minutes or five minutes.
“All the while, he knows that his place will be gone when the big hitters come back. He’s fighting for the cause, his teammates, and the manager and that’s brilliant to see.”
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has just 18 months remaining on his contract at the moment. The England international’s current deal at the club expires in the summer of 2023.
The 28-year-old midfielder has made 16 appearances in the Premier League this season, scoring two goals and providing one assist. Out of 16 appearances.
