Cape Town - Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will make a important addition to Liverpool once he returns, believes Phil Thompson.
The England International has been on the sidelines with a serious
knee injury that has seen him out of action since April 2018.
Oxlade-Chamberlain has had surgery and is currently in rehabilitation,
but the timing of his return is grey.
"It would be an absolutely brilliant addition and it would be like
having a new player," the former Reds defender told Sky Sports.
"It's so difficult. As players, you go through these turmoils, and it is a turmoil to you when you have to sit out."It will give the players a buzz to see him coming back and he will
be a massive asset if he can get back for the run-in. We've got a very
good midfield who don't get as many goals as they should do, but that's
where Oxlade-Chamberlain comes in."He had it at Arsenal, it took a little bit of time to get to know
the Jurgen Klopp way, the Liverpool way, but when he did, my goodness.
"He can dominate that drive from midfield, that powerful shot and the
assists that he can bring. These are all assets that will help that
midfield three that we've seen in the bigger games."
Oxlade-Chamberlain has made 32 appearances for the Reds since being signed from Arsenal in 2017.
