Five-time European champions Liverpool were initially in the running to sign in-demand Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey before the Reds pulled out of the race.

Liverpool were one of the first clubs that showed interest in the free transfer signing of Ramsey.

Reports had even claimed that Liverpool had a £50m bid turned down for the Welsh international star during last summer’s transfer window.

The London Evening Standard claim that Merseyside giants Liverpool pulled out of a deal for Ramsey due to his excessive wage demands.

The revelation from the English news outlet is coming in the wake of the official confirmation that Aaron Ramsey will join Italian Serie A champions Juventus.

Ramsey, 28 will team up with the Old Lady as a free agent in July.

The former Cardiff City playmaker has put pen to paper on a four-year contract until 2023.

Apart from Liverpool and Juventus, Aaron Ramsey was also linked with major European clubs like Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Chelsea, Manchester United and Paris Saint Germain (PSG).

Ramsey is leaving Arsenal in the summer after over a decade of service to the Gunners having joined from Welsh side Cardiff City in 2008.

The Welsh international midfielder signed for Arsenal as a teenager.
