Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
The modern day transfer window hardly disappoints and has been actively adding to the drama surrounding Liverpool’s business.
The Reds are hard pressed to not only retain Philippe Coutinho but also to sign some more players and this has seen even the most tenuous links spark a reaction.
Just when the Arsenal fans are rest assured Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is staying, the player himself has given Reds fans a glimmer of hope.
Something as simple as the Arsenal man liking an Instagram comment suggesting he was leaving Arsenal for Liverpool in a deal worth £28million appears to represent a small hint, for some.

It isn’t the first time social media has played a key role in fuelling rumours, with RB Leipzig’s Naby Keita having caught the eye by following Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino on Instagram.
On that occasion, it turned out to be nothing after Liverpool withdrew their interest in the Guinean after having two bids of £57million and £66million turned down by the Bundesliga club.
Interest in Oxlade-Chamberlain seemed as though it had cooled down a few weeks back, when Chelsea were believed to be approaching the Gunners with a bid for the midfielder.
That followed reports suggesting the former Southampton starlet was reluctant in extending his deal at the Emirates and instead keen on an exit, with Anfield being tipped as his most likely destination.
A failure to sign Keita this summer and Adam Lallana’s injury crisis means Oxlade-Chamberlain would be a welcomed and affordable addition to the squad, not to mention someone technically and physically equipped to thrive in Jurgen Klopp’s setup.
