Gibbs came through the youth ranks at Arsenal but, having played regularly between 2012 and 2015, he subsequently found himself on the fringes of the first team. I think everyone seems to be eulogising over Oxlade-Chamberlain in this last 24 hours, (but) he doesn't get into their best XI.

"He didn't make an easy decision but I think he made a great one to go on this journey with this squad of talented boys and our great supporters".

The new Liverpool signing hopes that he can fulfill his wish within Jurgen Klopp's team and build his reputation and likelihood of gaining a place in the England team for next years World Cup in Russian Federation.

"I'm not going to say too much today; I'm here with England and we've got two big games coming up, so I want to focus on them". I think that ultimately (his) talent and potential is fantastic, (but) ultimately his injury record has been poor.

Carl Jenkinson is now on loan at Birmingham, although he is sidelined having dislocated his shoulder on his Blues debut, while Jack Wilshere was widely expected to be sent out on a temporary deal having spent last season at Bournemouth.

Oxlade-Chamberlain, 24, had also been a target for Premier League champions Chelsea but it is believed Liverpool was always the player's preferred destination.

Oxlade-Chamberlain sent out this message on Twitter this morning.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger used Oxlade-Chamberlain in a wing-back role in his first appearance for the Gunners which has been a common theme over the past six months or so. Robin van Persie was already the Premier League's best striker when he joined Manchester United, while Samir Nasri and Gael Clichy had also flourished under Wenger at Arsenal before joining Manchester City.

"I'm not sure Oxlade-Chamberlain, when everyone is fit, will get in that midfield three. But Liverpool will take him out of his comfort zone".
