Liverpool are reportedly not interested in signing Aaron Ramsey next year, contrary to recent speculation.
Ramsey is set to leave Arsenal when his current deal expires in the summer after the offer of an extension was retracted by the club.
The Gunners supposedly withdrew their proposal of a new contract having been unable to agree to Ramsey’s reported £200,000-a-week wage demands.
He has since emerged as a potential target for Liverpool, with Jurgen Klopp known to be an avid admirer of the Welshman.
It had even been suggested the Reds were frontrunners alongside Manchester United to launch a move for Arsenal’s current longest-serving player.
That said, ESPN’s Rob Dawson now reports that Liverpool are not believed to have an interest in the 27-year-old.
It marks something of a sudden u-turn after reports emerged that Liverpool had attempted to sign Ramsey during the previous summer transfer window.
The announcement of his availability on the market has coincided conveniently with the Reds’ current lack of midfield creativity, naturally fuelling links to Anfield.
Ramsey will have the freedom of signing a pre-contract agreement with a foreign club following the turn of the year, with Juventus and AC Milan among the teams to be noted as potential suitors.
Despite the latest suggestions, it seems premature to rule Liverpool out entirely.
