Liverpool aren’t interested in Aaron Ramsey, according to ESPN, and Jurgen Klopp has no interest in signing the Welshman in January or in the summer.
With a lack of creativity coming from midfield in recent weeks, there have been a few players linked with moving to Liverpool in January to help unlock some of the more stubborn outfits in the Premier League.
The Nabil Fekir drama in the summer transfer window has only served to exacerbate how predictable Liverpool’s midfield is at times and with Naby Keita struggling to adapt to the Premier League, the need for a playmaker is only highlighted further.
One name that has cropped up rather predictably is Arsenal’s soon-to-be-out-of-contract midfielder Aaron Ramsey. His work rate, eye for goal and ability to pick a pass make him a prime candidate to come in but ESPN have ruled this out.
ESPN’s Rob Dawson writes: “Aaron Ramsey is open to joining one of Arsenal’s top six rivals if he leaves the Emirates on a free in the summer.”
He goes on to say, however, that Liverpool are not interested in buying the Welshman for free in the summer or on a cut price deal in January while Chelsea and Manchester United are assessing the situation and could move if he is allowed to leave for free.
There have been suggestions that the 27-year-old could move to Liverpool to serve as a double stop gap. Ramsey could plug the gap left by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain as he sits on the sidelines while also bringing added creativity after the Fekir deal fell through.
Personally, I believe that if anyone should come in, it must be a long-term solution to plug the gap left by Philippe Coutinho almost a year ago.
