Liverpool FC and Manchester United are set to go head-to-head in the race to sign Arsenal contract rebel Aaron Ramsey, according to a report in England.

The Evening Standard is reporting that the bitter rivals are both interested in a cut-price deal to sign the Wales international from the north London side in the January transfer window.

The same article states that AC Milan, Inter Milan and Juventus are all monitoring Ramsey’s situation and would be free to speak to the versatile midfielder about a deal at the start of the year.

According to the same story, Ramsey is keen to remain in the Premier League to avoid uprooting his family, which gives Liverpool FC and Manchester United an advantage over their European rivals.

The Evening Standard report lists Liverpool FC as the more likely destination for Ramsey given Jurgen Klopp’s interest in signing a playmaker after his failed move for Lyon star Nabil Fekir in the summer.

Ramsey’s former Arsenal team-mate Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain flourished in his first season at the Merseyside outfit after he moved to Liverpool FC in a £40m deal from the Gunners in August 2017.

Indeed, the England star played a key role in Liverpool FC’s run to the Champions League final with a crucial goal against Manchester City in the quarter-final at Anfield.

Manchester United, on the other hand, have held an interest that stretches back to 2008 when Red Devils legend Sir Alex Ferguson looked to sign the Wales international from Cardiff City.

Ramsey opted to move to Arsenal ahead of Manchester United given Arsene Wenger’s reputation for developing young talent at the north London side.

The Welsh star has won three FA Cup titles during his 10 seasons at Arsenal but the Gunners haven’t launched a sustained title challenge during that time.
