Ex-Liverpool defender Johnson: Keita and Oxlade-Chamberlain won't be short of offers

Former Liverpool defender Glen Johnson says midfield pair Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain won’t be short of suitors.

Both players could be on the move from Liverpool in January.

Speaking to Bettingodds, Johnson said: “I think the problem with them is not the ability to play, it’s the ability to stay fit. They’re on big wages and they don’t play, but any new club will be looking at that and thinking the same. It’s a difficult one for them.

“They need to get fit and they need to get match fit somehow which is almost impossible when you’re not playing, and impress someone else.

“Their careers haven’t worked at Liverpool as we’d have expected. I think they just need to get fit, get some games under their belt, and then they’ll have clubs that would love to sign them.”
