LIVERPOOL, England (AP) — Liverpool says midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is set to miss the "vast majority" of next season as he recovers from a serious knee ligament injury.
Oxlade-Chamberlain was injured in the first leg of Liverpool's Champions League semifinal against Roma in April and underwent surgery a week later. It ruled him out of the World Cup for England.
Liverpool said Wednesday that "competitive game time before the end of the campaign would be a bonus" for the 24-year-old Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Liverpool has signed central midfielders Fabinho and Naby Keita ahead of the new season.
