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.
