Liverpool's long-term interest in... Aston Villa midfielder Jacob Ramsey could be on his way out Transfers

After coming through the Aston Villa academy, 22-year-old midfielder Jacob Ramsey has scored 13 goals and provided 12 assists in 122 games for the first team.He can play in a variety of positions in midfield and has also gained a lot of experience on the international stage with 16 games for England U-21s.

Liverpool are reportedly continuing their interest in the player and he was one of the club’s targets in last summer’s transfer window as they aggressively strengthened their midfield. Although he was not a top candidate, the club may be looking to acquire him over the next year.

According to The Telegraph, the club may be forced to let go of the young 22-year-old midfielder if they are unable to sell Brazilian defender Diego Carlos and others. In addition to Liverpool, Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur have also expressed interest.

It seems unlikely that they would spend a transfer fee on a midfielder for the second year in a row, and it is only a groundless fear. Also, with Curtis Jones in a similar role and of a similar age, it is doubtful that this is a position that should be strengthened in the first place.

In addition, a defensive midfielder is the first choice if they want to keep numbers in midfield. The team’s priority is to acquire a centre-back or attacker, and it is unknown whether Liverpool have any budget left to strengthen on a limited budget.

At the moment, Ramsey will not cross over to Anfield, but who knows what the future holds.
