Jurgen Klopp wants Liverpool to sign former Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey to provide him with more options, according to reports in Spain.
Ramsey has struggled to nail down a starting role at Juventus since joining the club on a free transfer in the summer of 2019 from Arsenal.
The Wales international has been determined to be successful with the Serie A giants but has made only five appearances that have totalled 112 minutes so far this season.

Ramsey played over 350 times for the Gunners during his time at the Emirates Stadium and won the FA Cup three times before moving to Italy.
Liverpool lost Georginio Wijnaldum on a free transfer in the summer to Paris Saint-Germain and Klopp has used youth to cover his departure so far this season.
But now Spanish website Fichajes claims that Klopp is ‘eyeing’ Ramsey ‘with the intention to have more quality parts in the rotation’ and Liverpool are ready to back him with a summer move.
It is understood that Ramsey’s ‘departure is necessary to make money and free up spaces’ at Juventus with the Old Lady wanting ‘a shorter midfielder’.
Meanwhile, Southampton winger Theo Walcott recently claimed that Ramsey would love to come back to the Premier League with Arsenal.
“I’ll find out, give him a call and pester him [on if he’s returning to the Premier League],” Walcott said.
“Do you know what, it would be lovely, it would be fantastic if he came back to the Premier League. I feel like he would want to.
“Some part of me in my head thinks that he would love to come back to Arsenal. It does. Something about that would sort of tick a box.
“It’s one of those things, he’s at Juventus and he played very well for Wales last night and it’s good to see. A lot of people have been on his back in Italy, which I haven’t seen a lot or enough of it to comment on that.
“But he’s a leader. He’s a workhorse. Still playing for his country and has all these caps.”
