ALEX OXLADE-Chamberlain is about to don a different shade of red as he prepares to leave Arsenal for Liverpool after the north west Reds agree to buy the 24 year-old for £40million.

Oxlade-Chamberlain chose to transfer to Liverpool amidst interest from Chelsea, triggering what could have become a bidding war. Liverpool upped their fee as a result of Chelsea's involvement in the conversation, a move which sealed the deal.

Arsenal were not enthused abut negotiations initially, refusing to speak about the possibility of selling the midfielder, however Arsene Wenger changed tact as it became clear that Oxlade-Chamberlain could simply leave the club after his contract expires in December this year.

After Oxlade‑Chamberlain completes his medical assessment, the move will become official providing all 'i's are dotted and 't's are crossed.

Last Sunday (August 27) was ominous for both clubs, when Arsenal lost 4-0 to Liverpool 4-0.
