Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will wear the No.15 jersey in the new season for Liverpool after the departure of Daniel Sturridge, the club have confirmed.

Th English midfielder wore No.15 at Arsenal, but was forced to settle for No.21 when he joined Liverpool two years ago.

Sturridge's impending exit gives Oxlade-Chamberlain the chance to wear his favorite number.

And with the release of the 2019/20 shirts several weeks ago, Oxlade-Chamberlain will personally reimburse any fans who already bought No.21 jerseys with his name on the back.
