Liverpool on the verge of sealing deal for Arsenal playmaker

Liverpool are reportedly ahead in the race for out-of-contract Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey.

The Welshman has been touted to leave the club at the end of next season, after talks to extend his stay at the Emirates stadium broke down.

Ramsey demanded a 200,000-pounds-per-week wages, a fee the Gunners executive reportedly turned down.

It is understood Arsenal do not want the Welshman to leave on a free next season. They’d  rather sell him off on a cheap.

Liverpool never resumed negotiations over French player Nebil Fekir. The Reds demanded a softer price for the Lyon star after discovering some glitches in his medical.

However, Lyon refused to let their star go on a cheap and closed the door on the transfer.

Ramsey showed how much pace and strength he still had under his belt in Arsenal’s 5-1 rout of Fulham.

His sublime effort in the 67th minute, made sure Arsenal steered clear at 3-1.

Ramsey’s third goal, just 39 seconds after coming on as a substitute, was the fastest Premier League goal by an Arsenal substitute, since 2007.

Jurgen Klopp is desperate to add spark in the middle of the park berth in his squad. It was evident in their last Premier League clash against leaders Manchester City on Sunday.

The Evening Standard says they can get the Wales midfielder for half the 53 million pounds price they wanted to splurge for Nebil Fekir.
