Aaron Ramsey looks likely to leave Arsenal next summer.

The 27-year-old Welsh midfielder - who joined the Gunners back in 2008 - has just nine months remaining on his current deal in north London.

Following months of negotiations, Arsenal inexplicably decided to withdraw their contract offer.

“Hopefully somebody will come up and tell me why,” said Ramsey, as per The Guardian. “I’ll accept that if there’s a reason.

"When the time is right, I probably will find out but that hasn’t happened yet.

“There is no contract on the table at the moment so there is nothing for me to consider or whatever. We all know that the contract was taken away off the table.

"I’m not sure exactly why because a few weeks before we sort of agreed and I was ready to sign.”

Able to leave on a free transfer next summer, Ramsey is being linked with a number of top clubs.

Fulham FC v Arsenal FC - Premier League

Premier League rivals Liverpool reportedly don't want to sign the talented midfielder and, according to the Mirror, there are two reasons why they're going to pass on Ramsey.

Jurgen Klopp, who historically prefers younger players, reportedly isn't keen on dishing out massive wages on a player who will turn 28 in December.

The eccentric German manager has only signed two players older than Ramsey since arriving at Anfield in 2015 - Klopp signed veteran goalkeeper Alex Manninger on a free transfer and spent £4.2m on Ragnar Klavan.

Those two back-up players have since left the club and Ramsey would command a much bigger salary.

As per the Mirror, the second reason Liverpool don't want to sign Ramsey is because of his injury record.

The Arsenal man has been plagued by injury problems in recent times.

Klopp reportedly believes that players of his age suffer injuries more frequently, having had to deal with Adam Lallana and Daniel Sturridge over the last couple of seasons.

Ramsey, who is able to sign a pre-contract with foreign clubs in January, will not be joining Liverpool at the end of the season.

Manchester United are reportedly interested in Ramsey's services.
