Alongside a picture of him in a hospital bed, Oxlade-Chamberlain wrote on Twitter: "Watching the boys in Rome last week taking us one step closer to something very special. Knee surgery was a success and the hard work has already begun."

Liverpool have completed the signing of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain from Arsenal in a deal believed to be worth up to £35million.

The Merseyside club have announced the 24-year-old England midfielder has signed a long-term deal, understood to be five years, at Anfield.

Liverpool moved for Oxlade-Chamberlain this week after the player reportedly turned down the chance to join Chelsea.

Oxlade-Chamberlain, who is currently on international duty, underwent a medical at England's St George's Park training base after agreeing terms with the Reds.

Speaking from the England camp, where he is preparing for World Cup qualifiers against Malta and Slovakia, Oxlade-Chamberlain told the club's website, www.liverpoolfc.com: "Firstly, I'm delighted to have signed for Liverpool and a big thank you to everyone here at the FA that has made this possible, using the facilities. It has been a massive help.

"I'm not going to say too much today. I'm here with England and we've got two big games coming up, so I want to focus on them."

The signing is Liverpool's second of the week after a deal to bring in midfielder Naby Keita from Red Bull Leipzig next summer was completed on Tuesday.

He is the club's fourth major arrival of this summer's window after Mohamed Salah, Dominic Solanke and Andy Robertson.
