‘Exceptional’: Mills claims incoming 25-year-old ‘will add something different’ to Liverpool team

Pundit Danny Mills has talked up Liverpool’s chances of being improved by returning players next season after a campaign of remarkable progress.

Following an outstanding run in the Champions League last season, the Reds were beaten in the final of the competition by a Real Madrid side who were gifted two goals by some poor goalkeeping by Loris Karius.

On the way to that final, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, whom the Reds had purchased from Arsenal in the summer of 2017, was an instrumental part of the Liverpool midfield.

The Englishman claimed a more regular role in the side after the exit of Coutinho in January 2018, but a severe knee injury has seen him miss several months.

Oxlade-Chamberlain is now fit and coming back into the team and Danny Mills has suggested that the midfielder has the capability to be in exceptional form next season.

“Oxlade-Chamberlain is coming back as well and he will add something different with his driving runs from midfield. He can be an exceptional player for them next season.” Mills told Football Insider

“Can they unearth a gem to add to the mix this summer? Maybe. But, who is going to be happy to play second fiddle? It’s going to be very difficult to find anyone better than who they have without spending massive money.”
