Liverpool are ready to sell midfielders Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain under interest from Aston Villa and West Ham United this summer.
Oxlade-Chamberlain, 28, has just one year left on his contract at Anfield and has fallen out of favor in recent months.
Both Villa and the Hammers, who qualified for Europe next season, are looking to strengthen their squads.
Oxlade-Chamberlain was close to a loan move to Newcastle United in January but a deal never materialised.
The midfielder has barely played for Liverpool this season, making just 17 Premier League appearances.
He has struggled to maintain a regular starting spot under Jurgen Klopp since signing for £35million from Arsenal in 2017.
A fresh start at a new club could help Oxlade-Chamberlain restart his career in England with the World Cup in Qatar in November.
He has made 35 appearances for the Three Lions but has not played in an England shirt for three years.
His departure shouldn’t be difficult for Liverpool as Klopp’s squad has a wealth of options in midfield and down the wings.
Luis Diaz and Diogo Jota have blended in seamlessly over the past two years, complementing Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.
Meanwhile, the likes of Naby Keita, Harvey Elliott, Curtis Jones and new signing Fabio Carvalho Klopp provide more than ample cover.
Liverpool meet Real Madrid in the Champions League final on Saturday, where they aim to secure their third major title of the season.
