Juventus are banking on Jurgen Klopp renewing his admiration for Aaron Ramsey and Liverpool making a bid in January, while Friday’s Euro Paper Talk also claims that Tottenham have renewed their interest in Stuttgart striker Sasa Kalajdzic.
JUVE HOPING FOR LIVERPOOL DEAL
Juventus are reportedly hoping that Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp’s long-term admiration for Aaron Ramsey could lead the Reds to swoop for the player in January.
The Welshman has struggled to hold down a starting role in Turin, having moved to Juve from Arsenal on a free in 2019. Indeed, he has only totalled 112 minutes of Serie A action in five appearances this season.
The 30-year-old has been linked with a move back to the Premier League since last summer, with the Reds, Newcastle, Everton and West Ham mooted as destinations.
But according to ESPN, Klopp has admired Ramsey for some time and had previously considered moving for the player when his contract ran out at Arsenal.
The Reds decided not to swoop for a new central midfielder despite letting Gini Wijnaldum move on. Klopp instead decided to promote Harvey Elliott and give Curtis Jones more game time.
However, there is a growing feeling that the German still fancies a move for Ramsey and could try and swoop in the New Year.
They will, though, face plenty of competition for his signature, particularly from Newcastle. The cash-rich Magpies are expected to invest fairly heavily in January to bolster Eddie Howe’s squad.
For their part, Juve are hoping that a longer list of interested clubs will lead to a bidding war for the player. That way they can cash in and move for targets of their own.
