Arsenal players send heartfelt messages to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on Twitter

Oxlade-Chamberlain (24) has penned a five-year deal worth around £120 000-a-week.

For the midfielder to turn his back on both that money and that promise is a damning verdict on Wenger, who clearly failed to make the most of one of England's most talented players.

Oxlade-Chamberlain's exit looks inevitable; it is now just a matter of where he goes.

"He doesn't get into their best XI", Neville told Sky Sports News HQ on Friday afternoon.

He joins England team-mates Jordan Henderson and Adam Lallana among Klopp's options in midfield, along with Philippe Coutinho, Emre Can, Georginio Wijnaldum and James Milner. He thinks he'll get more out of working with Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.

This is believed to be the reason for Jurgen Klopp bringing the player from London to Liverpool.

For one thing we got a very healthy £40 million transfer fee for a player who would have left for nothing next summer and when you look at his goal record of 20 and just nine in the league from seven seasons and nearly 200 games as a Gunner, you could say that we have taken Liverpool for a ride. And his poor injury record does not help.

"He seems as if he wasn't happy at Arsenal, so now hopefully he can settle down, give the best years of his career at Liverpool Football Club".

"I do think for Liverpool he should do well in these first six to 12 months".

The versatile midfielder is reported to have rejected the chance to move to Premier League champions Chelsea in favour of a move to Liverpool. The question is why didn't we bid this amount weeks ago when there was no rush and plenty of time to get the deal complete. "I welcome him to the Liverpool family". "I welcome him to the Liverpool family". Oxlade-Chamberlain had 20 goals in 198 appearances for the Gunners.
