John Barnes thinks Liverpool’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain would thrive at Premier League club Leicester City and says the King Power Stadium could be a ‘really good place’ for the Englishman.
Oxlade-Chamberlain has made 101 appearances for the Reds since joining the club from domestic rivals Arsenal in the summer transfer market of 2017.
The 27-year-old star has won the Premier League and UEFA Champions League during his stint at Anfield but is yet to fully cement a place in Jurgen Klopp’s starting eleven, largely due to a number of injury setbacks.
Liverpool legend Barnes insists he wouldn’t judge Oxlade-Chamberlain for quitting the club in the pursuit of more regular football and has named the Foxes as a possible destination for the versatile midfielder.
‘A Premier League team is definitely somewhere Oxlade-Chamberlain can go,’ John told BonusCodeBets. ‘He won’t be going to Chelsea, Manchester United or back to Arsenal.
‘Leicester could be a really good place for him, which is a good opportunity to play for a Champions League team.
‘It’s fine being at a club that is winning the league and Champions League, so if Oxlade-Chamberlain is leaving to play regular football I commend him for that, this is also why Lallana left.’
