Liverpool are interested in signing Aaron Ramsay, according to reports in the Sunday papers.

“When you first said it, my reaction was it will make them stronger, having Ramsey in the squad,” said former Liveprool forward and fellow Welshman, Dean Saunders.

“He covers more ground than everyone almost every week, and he scores goals and makes goals; he’s a good footballer with a good brain.

“I think Aaron Ramsey will make Liverpool stronger. I think he’d be a great signing for Liverpool. If Liverpool sign him, they definitely get stronger. What a midfield that would be – Ramsey, Keita and Fabinho.”

Whether or not Liverpool need yet another midfielder right now is the big question and, with Ramsay entering the final season of his current Arsenal contract, this could well just be gossip spread around to try to generate interest in the 27-year-old rather than a genuine transfer rumour.
