      He has done f**k all to justify that fee. We would be paying it because of his nationality and the fact we're buying from arsenal.

      I never rated him, but I must admit I've been impressed watching him in recent months playing in centre mid rather than his usual position out wide. Is he good enough to push hendo, lallana or wijnaldum out the side though? Not for me, and for that reason I'd pass on that price.

      He would be a good addition to the squad, but for a third of that fee.  If we're spending 35m on a player then you would expect him to walk straight into the 11 and I'm not sure Ox does.

      Jürgen recently suggested that there would be no negative net spend this summer and (more importantly) that we had to make transfers if we want to "perform at the highest level".

      In my opinion Ox C is not a player who fits the description of someone who will elevate us to "the highest level".

      We have been told that there's money and we have been told that...

      "we will be prepared for the summer for sure and we all have the same plan: sporting director, scouting department, owners, myself. We want to make this club as big and as successful as possible."

      Surely this isn't who we have in mind? 😕

      If true, wouldn't at all surprise me to see a deal involving Sturridge, who imo is very much a Wenger type player.

      See, price is relative. The question is would he elevate our midfield to the next level? May be not so much in terms of technique, but from what I have seen he has made good impact when he comes off the bench and is a superb professional. He was the first person to drag Giroud back to the field and to his senses when the latter went ga-ga celebrating the equalizer against Bournemouth. He would fit in fantastically in any Jürgen set-up.

      I wouldnt say a strong NO if our interest in him is serious. With our style and pressing, and our players tiring out, there would be a lot of rotation next season. Jürgen turned down Teixeira cos of the asking price, so he knows better. We are in some serious need of depth in the middle, and I think he can become a lot better under Jürgen.

      Having said that, I hope he is "one of the targets" for our midfield and down the list as a 3rd or 4th preference, not THE target!

      I personally like the Ox. He's quick and strong on the ball. He could be an exciting prospect. But not at that silly amount. And as stated before, would he improve the starting 11? Not sure about that, but he'd certainly strengthen the squad...

      Completely agree with all of this.

      Jürgen, remember, is in "total control of transfers" mate.

      It goes without saying then that, if he's signed, 'even at £35m', Jürgen thinks he's worth it... irrefuckingspective of anything else 😉

      He is ordinary and impotent in a very beige Arsenal side and (hopefully) not the height of our ambition. 😞

      We're extremely under nourished as a squad. Ox would bolster our options. That's guaranteed. It's then up to him as they say, to kick on and make himself a regular. However, you don't pay £35m for squad players...

      I don't know what to make of this one.

      Used to be really quick.  Is he still quick? Because we'll need him to be.
      Often gets injured / dropped.  Will he stay fit and motivated?
      A bit 'nice.'  Will he graft when he needs to?
      Is he good enough to slot in, in the absence of Bobby/Sadio/ Adam/Phil?

      He strikes me as one of those players who have failed to kick on adequately under the cosseting influence of Arsene; but maybe he'll flourish at a club where he'll have to do some real work.

      In that case, we would have missed out on LOADS of players over the years.

      I honestly don't know which one to vote. Do I think he's worth 35 million? No! If Jürgen wants him, and that's what he costs, then Yes! Do I want him here? Not really, but I have no other players to suggest, so f**k my opinion!

      I personally think he could thrive under Klopp. Who cares about the price, not our money. £35m is pretty standard these days.

      You'll care about the price when it's the reason we can't get a better player for another position and you're complaining about the owners being tight with their money :D.

      Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain missed 77 games due to injury in the last four seasons. That's a horrific record. #lfc

      Fair play to Corbs, robbing these off his retweets.

      That record is by far the scariest part of this transfer imo.

      Actually less concerned about that part mate, I always thought he had talent. When I first saw him play for Arsenal I thought he looked a special player, now granted that has worn off due to injuries over a time a little.

      So I think the talent is there, my bigger concerns would be the injury record and apparent attitude towards warming the bench at Arsenal. Someone suggested it was because of this why he was given the number 10 role due to kicking up a fuss. No idea of the truth behind that but right now we have a squad that appears to really pull together and the less bad apples in there the better.

      Intriguing this one.

      There is no way this is true. If it is, then I have to believe the "Transfer Committee" is in fact fully in charge and Klopp's statements otherwise are just hot air. After his freezing out of Sturridge over his inability to be available, why in the world would he want a player that's almost as oft injured and isn't as talented? I mean this literally makes no sense.
