Liverpool are the latest club to show an interest in Aaron Ramsey, with the Arsenal star set to enter the last six months of his contract.
According to The Mirror, Liverpool are also showing a keen interest in Aaron Ramsey. The player is in the last year of his Arsenal contract and has been linked with several clubs. Premier League giants Chelsea and Manchester United have been rumoured to be watching him closely while there is also interest from Italy and Spain.
Aaron Ramsey’s is a case perhaps similar to Jack Wilshere. A great midfielder who never really realised his true potential. But, unlike Wilshere, Ramsey has forged a formidable career and has established himself as a regular at Arsenal. Ramsey has maintained his position and status under Unai Emery, with a couple of assists already notched up.
His future at Arsenal though, is under question.
That Ramsey is in the last year of his contract is known to all. There have been rumours of an Arsenal contract on the offer for several months now. And, according to reports, Ramsey was content with the deal and even agreed to a long-term contract before Arsenal decided to rescind their offer. This has now seen Ramsey being targeted by the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool and others.
Chelsea have an abundance of midfielders. But, Maurizio Sarri will look to go for quality over quantity. Danny Drinkwater is likely to leave. Also, the prospect of getting a homegrown player and one as good as Ramsey is perhaps too tempting.
Manchester United signed Fred during the summer. But, there are questions surrounding Paul Pogba’s immediate future at the club. Ramsey could serve as a direct replacement for the Frenchman while also being an economical move. Ramsey could also help unlock Alexis Sanchez, who has been dull since his move to Manchester United.
Liverpool though, do not harbour a real need for a midfielder but have been continuously linked with a few names for a couple of months now. One reason could be the lack of replacement for Emre Can. But, Fabinho serves the same purpose and while the Brazilian is yet to settle in, the rumours might take a backseat once the former AS Monaco star comes into his own.
Whichever club Ramsey chooses, he is unlikely to have a dearth of options. Arsenal should be sweating over his contract condition. The likes of Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool lie in the umbers, waiting to pounce.
