Former Newcastle United winger John Barnes has told HITC Sport that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is a good signing for Liverpool.
Oxlade-Chamberlain moved to Liverpool from Premier League rivals Arsenal in the summer transfer window.
It has also been reported that the 24-year-old, who can operate as a winger or as a central midfielder, turned down defending Premier League champions Chelsea before his switch to Anfield.
Former Liverpool star Barnes has praised the signing of Oxlade-Chamberlain, and has said that the ex-Southampton man is a typical Jurgen Klopp signing.
In an exclusive interview with HITC Sport, Barnes, speaking on behalf of Bonus Code Bets, said about Oxlade-Chamberlain’s move to Liverpool: “For Liverpool, I think he is a good signing because he is a Jurgen Klopp-type player.
“Jurgen Klopp likes players who play with high intensity, high energy. He can play in one of the three midfield positions. He likes players who are very direct, very strong, very quick, which is what he brings.
"He can also play in one of the wide positions in terms of where Mane or Salah plays. I think he is a typical Jurgen Klopp-type signing.”
Liverpool finished fourth in the Premier League table last season and will be aiming to repeat those heroics during the 2017-18 campaign.
Jurgen Klopp’s side are second in the league table at the moment with seven points from three matches, two points behind leaders Manchester United.
