Liverpool will rival Arsenal for £10million Southampton wonderkid Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Skysports.com understands that Manchester United and Liverpool will bid for Southampton starlet Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in the next 48 hours.
The 17-year-old Portsmouth-born midfielder is regarded as one of the country’s brightest talents having won rave reviews from his 14 starts for the League One outfit.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain picked a great time to put on a masterclass. By all accounts the Southampton starlet put in a wonderful display last night and this has led to a frantic scramble for his signature and Manchester United and Liverpool will go head to head to sign the 17 year old as Arsenal apparently look likely to not put in an offer, presumably as Arsene Wenger has a side perhaps already populated with too many youngsters.
The Portsmouth born midfielder made his debut at the tail end of last season and impressed but no one would have foreseen just how well the teenager would take to life in his second season at St Marys’ where he has been a virtual ever present for Nigel Adkins’ side and has notched up seven goals from 17 starts and a bucket load of assists to boot.
Southampton have of course produced some stunning young talent in recent years with the likes of Gareth Bale and Theo Walcott both going on to become household names, clearly Sir Alex Ferguson and Kenny Dalglish believe Chamberlain, son of former Pompey and England winger Mark, will do likewise.
