Former Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade Chamberlain becomes the latest player to receive an offer from Saudi Arabia’s Pro League teams.
An unknown team is looking forward to giving him a $20 million-a-year contract in a bid to move him to the Middle East.
Alex Oxlade Chamberlain, who is now 29 years old, is currently a free agent after his contract expired on June 30, 2023.
He is going to be the first English player to play in the Saudi Arabia Pro League if he accepts the offer.
The former Arsenal and Southampton player who won the Premier League while he was at Anfield is considering whether to accept the lucrative offer from Saudi Arabia or continue playing in Europe.
Saudi Arabia had invested a lot in world-class players. They have signed Ruben Neves, Kalidou Koulibaly, Eduardo Mendy, Karim Benzema, Ngolo Kante, and many more.
Oxlade-Chamberlain would be seen as a coup for the Saudis because of his 35 England caps and large social media presence.
He scored 18 goals in 146 games for The Reds following a £35 million move from Arsenal in 2017 and had to overcome injuries along the way.
