Liverpool and Manchester United are both considering making a January move for Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey, with the Welshman's contract at the Emirates Stadium set to expire at the end of the season.

The midfielder confirmed that he believed a new deal had been agreed with Arsenal before the club pulled out of the agreement last month.

Avid Sports & Entertainment Group made it clear on social media - in tweets that have now been deleted - that Ramsey has no future at the club.

'That's all I am concentrating on, giving my best for Arsenal'.

But those talks were shelved and the Wales global is now set to become a free agent next summer, although Arsenal could attempt to cash in on the 27-year-old midfielder in the January transfer window.

An astonishing report by Standard states Liverpool and Man United are weighing up a cut-price move for Ramsey who will become out of contract in the comings and is valued at €45 million by transfermrkt.com.

"Would I stay for the rest of the season?"

Of course, yeah. I am contracted to Arsenal and I am going to do my best now this season to try and achieve something special.

Ramsey also discussed the contract talks publicly for the first time since negotiations collapsed and indicated that he had been ready to sign a new deal when the club's offer was rescinded.

He added: 'Everything has been going great with the club.

He has started six of eight Premier League games under Unai Emery, contributing one goal and three assists.

Asked if he was disappointed that there was no contract on the table, Ramsey said: "That's a decision they (Arsenal) have made and things happen in football".
