Steve McManaman believes Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is worth the £35m price tag that Liverpool have reportedly put on him. 

Oxlade-Chamberlain has struggled for game time at Anfield so far this season, having only started just one of Liverpool’s opening eight Premier League matches.

Arsenal are said to be eyeing up a move for the England international, six years after selling him to the Merseyside club.

The 28-year-old played alongside Mikel Arteta during his time in north London and the Spaniard feels he could add some experience and flexibility to his midfield options.

Former Liverpool midfielder McManaman believes the signing of Oxlade-Chamberlain would be shrewd business for the Gunners.

‘I think Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is easily worth the money,’ McManaman told Horseracing.net.

‘He did have that bad injury for Liverpool a couple of years ago against Roma and he was out for a long time. But sometimes that happens. Since then he’s been fit and well. He came on against Watford and played.

‘If he wants to leave and play first team football that’s entirely up to him. The question is, is he worth that kind of money? And the answer is yes, without a doubt.

‘It seems like a hell of a lot of money, but it’s not a lot when you look around and see the figures being paid by some other football teams.’
