Both reports claim a fee would be in the region of £20 million to £25 million for the player who can operate in a number of positions in midfield and attack.
He’s made 23 appearances in total this season for Arsene Wenger’s side – scoring six and assisting six – but is yet to complete a full 90 minutes, something that it’s claimed has seen him frustrated and seeking regular football.
A deal for the England international though would not be straight forward, with Arsenal unlikely to want to sell to a direct rival. It’s also very debatable as to whether he’d get a regular role at Liverpool.
However, these latest reports do not come from Liverpool-based correspondents, which could indicate that the link is being pushed from the player’s side and not Liverpool’s. A skeptic may claim it’s part of the player getting a new deal at the London club.
This seems an unlikely move overall.
