Liverpool are interested in signing Aaron Ramsey from Arsenal

Ramsey, 27, is entering the last 12 months of his Arsenal contract and has yet to agree a new deal.And transfer expert Ian McGarry claims Liverpool are interested in bringing him to Anfield with the clock ticking until deadline day.

“There’s a little bit of interest from Liverpool, I understand,” McGarry told the Transfer Window podcast.

“I think there’s no vacancy at Liverpool right now following the arrival of Fabinho and Naby Keita but Ramsey would certainly be a very good addition to Jurgen Klopp’s squad as a creative box-to-box midfielder. So, Ramsey is taking time and quite rightly to weigh up his options.”

“I don’t think he’s particularly worried about moving (by the deadline) because as of January he can sign a pre-contract with any club outside of England as Emre Can did with Juventus and move next summer for free when the fee that would be demanded for him now – £35m to £40m – would be paid to him in wages as a signing on fee.”

“To me, Ramsey is again one of the few candidates of British players who would happily go abroad and ply his trade and learn the language and fit in and be a success. So his options are not purely limited to the Premier League. I think it would be a big loss to Emery and Arsenal but at the same time I get the feeling with Emery that he is not one to stand on tradition and culture.”

“We saw the way Jack Wilshere, someone who had been endlessly indulged with contracts despite the way he recovered from injuries, we saw the way Emery was quite cold in telling him ‘you might be a sub’. It’s not come to that with Ramsey yet. He’s not been told he won’t be a starting player.”
