Alex Oxlade Chamberlain scored the opening goal in England's 2-2 draw against Scotland

ALEX OXLADE-Chamberlain has admitted his versatility is a double-edged sword, but feels he has had a new start with England.

A long season comes to a close on Tuesday evening at the Stade de France, where Euro 2016 runners-up France are the opposition in a glamour friendly.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has excelled in central midfield and regularly been deployed out wide, while the England worldwide ended the season playing right wing-back for the Gunners.

A move to Liverpool could suit Oxlade-Chamberlain.

"You heard (Southgate) say there "we need a clear identity on the way we want to go forward", he said.

"I played more of my games on the wing, then a moment playing in midfield for a while. I've always wanted to be Steven Gerrard, so I've still got a hope of that!"

The Daily Express reports Liverpool are readying a last-ditch attempt to try and lure Oxlade-Chamberlain to Anfield, with Jurgen Klopp prepared to offer the Gunners £40m for the England international- who opened the scoring in the Three Lions' 2-2 draw with Scotland on Saturday.

The 23-year-old ended an otherwise frustrating campaign as an FA Cup victor, but would not be drawn on Arsene Wenger signing a new deal at the Emirates Stadium.

Oxlade-Chamberlain broke into the Southampton first team as a 16-year-old in 2010 before joining Arsenal in 2011.

"I enjoyed them all for different reasons, " Oxlade-Chamberlain said of his positional switches.

"But they're both great managers and Gareth's obviously really well connected, especially with the younger players".
