Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey is on Liverpool’s radar, according to the Mirror.
The Reds reportedly had an enquiry knocked back in the summer, and could return in January with the player’s contract running down.
Fans on Twitter don’t think he’d be a great loss if he moved to a rival club:
Let him go to the highest bidder, as long as he’s being replaced by a class winger in the same window.

No big loss, had one good season from memory and easily replaceable.

Sounds like he’s moving to Liverpool . Already having hangs with Ox

He’ll move in Jan , whichever club offers a player exchange I believe otherwise it will be who wants to pay his wages and it will turn into a bidding war.

Bargain basement pricing…

Liverpool bought Ox, Keita, Fabinho then still want Ramsey. Seems right

What do they need another midfielder for?

Some wanted a player in return:
20m and Fabinho on loan ?

The BBC are reporting that the Gunners actually withdrew a contract offer to Ramsey, suggesting they had second thoughts about giving the 27-year-old a new deal.
However, he could now be allowed to leave on a free transfer, although Arsenal would likely prefer to sell him in the January transfer window.
Only foreign clubs are allowed to sign pre-contract agreements with Premier League players so Liverpool would either have to make an offer when the transfer window reopens to ward off interest from abroad, or wait to discuss terms when his contract expires in June.
