Oxlade-Chamberlain, 29, left Anfield at the end of last season following the conclusion of his contract.

Last week he travelled to Istanbul ahead of a potential transfer.

And in an official club statement this morning, Besiktas confirmed: “Negotiations have started with the player regarding the transfer of Professional Football Player Alexander Mark David Oxlade-Chamberlain.”

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano claims that the deal has already been agreed between the two parties.

He adds that Oxlade-Chamberlain will join Besiktas on a three-year contract.

The midfielder signed for Liverpool in a deal worth around £35million from Arsenal in 2017.

He went on to play 146 times for Jurgen Klopp’s side, scoring 18 goals and laying on 15 assists.

Oxlade-Chamberlain suffered with persistent injuries during his six-year stint at Anfield.

But he did manage to win the Premier League, Champions League, League Cup and Club World Cup.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has earned 35 England caps during his career.

But he has not featured for the Three Lions since 2019.

Having suffered with a hamstring issue, he made just four Premier League starts for Liverpool last term.
