Liverpool’s hopes of signing Aaron Ramsey in the winter window have been dealt a blow, as the player isn’t looking to leave Arsenal in January.
The 27-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and could move on a free. However, a host of clubs are interested in the Welshman, according to the Mirror.
The Mirror quoted the Welshman as saying:
“Will I stay for the rest of the season? Of course, yeah. I am contracted to Arsenal and I am going to do my best now this season to try and achieve something special.”
The midfielder believed that he was close to signing a new long-term agreement with the Gunners but that was not the case now.
The 27-year-old further added:
“That’s a decision that they have made and things happen in football and you just have to get on with it and carry on playing the best I can.
“That’s all I am concentrating on, giving my best for Arsenal.”
The midfielder is free to sign a new deal with non-English clubs in January and this would put Liverpool in a tough spot.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain made the switch from Arsenal to Liverpool last season, and it will be important to see how Ramsey’s situation develops as the winter window approaches.
