Liverpool and Manchester United eyeing January cut-price Aaron Ramsey bid

Liverpool and Manchester United are both preparing for the possibility of making a cut-price bid for Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey in January, according to Standard Sport.

The 27-year-old’s contract negotiations with the Gunners collapsed last month with his current deal due to expire next summer.

The Welshman is keen to remain in England, despite interest from abroad, with his family settled in London.

Ramsey is not short of options with AC Milan, Inter Milan and Juventus also interested in landing his signature.

However, the midfielder is expected to remain in England with his wife soon to give birth to twins.

Arsenal officials feel Liverpool and United will attempt to take advantage of the player’s contract situation in January.

Jurgen Klopp wants to sign Ramsey as an alternative to Nabil Fekir whose move from Lyon fell through over the summer.

Meanwhile, £52m signing Fred is yet to hit the ground running at Manchester United and Jose Mourinho is keen to sign a new midfielder.

It is expected that Ramsey could leave the Emirates for a fee worth around £25m.

Unai Emery keen to reinvest Ramsey funds

Unai Emery will sanction the sale of Ramsey in January to raise funds to reinvest in his squad.

Like Alexis Sanchez, Arsenal will look to sell the player in January to recuperate some funds.

The Gunners are eyeing moves for Atlanta United’s Miguel Almiron and Porto’s Hector Herrera.
