Liverpool are interested in Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey and the Welshman is weighing up his options, according to Sky Sports ‘transfer expert’ Ian McGarry.
Klopp’s work in the summer transfer window is all but done, with the German expecting a few more outs but not any ins.
The Reds remain interested in Nabil Fekir and Christian Pulisic but neither will join the club this year despite the need for a natural no.10 to provide a similar creative outlet in the middle of the park that Philippe Coutinho did before his move to Barcelona in January.
But now, according to Sky Sports ‘transfer expert’ Ian McGarry, Liverpool are interested in signing Aaron Ramsey from Arsenal.
“There’s a little bit of interest from Liverpool, I understand,” McGarry said.
“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 [this summer] 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.
“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.”
