Former Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey may well leave Juventus this summer, but right now it’s looking like it won’t be for Liverpool.

Recent reports have labelled Aaron Ramsey a problem for Juventus, given his high wages and mixed output for the side since joining on a free transfer from Arsenal in 2019. He still has a contract until 2023, but it looks increasingly likely he might leave.

But despite rumours linking Ramsey with a return to England to join Arsenal’s Premier League rivals Liverpool, Fabrizio Romano claims there’s nothing to that story at this stage.

There’s nothing between Liverpool and Aaron Ramsey as of today, despite rumours,” Romano said. “Former Arsenal midfielder could leave Juventus in the summer – but there are no negotiations or contacts with [the Liverpool] board at the moment.”

As things stand, Ramsey is injured, once again. He picked up a thigh problem after the Champions League exit to Porto, an exit for which he has also come in for some criticism.

Undoubtedly, this latest update is going to get a certain section of the Arsenal fanbase excited about a possible return to North London for the Welshman. He’s on the market, Arsenal need a midfielder and Liverpool are out of the picture.

But we’ve written before about why Arsenal probably shouldn’t re-sign the 30-year-old. They need to be thinking about the long-term with their next midfield signings, because it seems pretty clear they’re not ready to compete at the very top in the short-term.
