Liverpool and Leicester City are set to go head-to-head in a bid to sign England international forward Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain this summer, according to the Express.

The Premier League sides, who finished eighth and first in the English top-flight standings respectively this term after the Foxes’ fairytale campaign, are ready to fight it out for the Arsenal winger’s signature.

The 22-year-old; who has 24 international caps for the Three Lions, but will miss England’s EURO 2016 campaign due to a knee injury, scored two goals and provided two assists in 33 appearances in all competitions for the Gunners this season.

Oxlade-Chamberlain, who arrived at the Emirates Stadium from Southampton back in August 2011 in a deal worth up to £15m, is tipped to leave the North London outfit this summer after seeing his career come to a stall.

The report suggests that manager Arsene Wenger is willing to let the winger leave for potential new signings ahead of the 2016/17 campaign.
