The Reds are believed to be leading the chase for the midfielder

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp issued a statement of intent by bolstering the squad during the summer transfer window, signing 4 new players and reinforcing the particular weak areas.

He splashed out over £170 million to secure the signings of midfielder Naby Keita from RB Leipzig, versatile Fabinho from Monaco, winger Xherdan Shaqiri from Stoke City and goalkeeper Alisson Becker from Roma.

There were suggestions that the Reds were interested in signing Aaron Ramsey too as the player was linked with an exit before transfer deadline. But Arsenal decided against selling him as Unai Emery wanted to keep him.

Liverpool are still keen to sign Ramsey despite having a bid rejected in the summer, report the Mirror.

The Wales International has entered the final of 12 months of his current deal and yet to commit himself to a long term agreement. Talks have been going on with his representative for a new contract over the past few months that have yet to result in agreement.

Emery even insisted before the start of the current campaign that he sees the midfielder as a key part of his future plans and even urged the club to offer him a new contract.

Reports emerged on Thursday that talks over a new deal has broke down and the 27 year old has reportedly turned down club’s latest offer. With no new offer forthcoming it was suggested he could be made available in January, with clubs like Juventus, AC Milan and Chelsea also interested in signing him.

The Welshman is likely to leave the Gunners on a free transfer next summer as talks over a new contract continue to stall. And Liverpool are believed to be leading the chase to land the midfielder, who is able to negotiate a possible switch to Anfield in January.
