Concern For Arsenal As Man Utd & Chelsea Prepare Swoop For 27-Year-Old Star
Arsenal are concerned Aaron Ramsey will leave the club as Manchester United and Chelsea prepare to swoop for the contract rebel midfielder
The Premier League transfer window may be closed but European clubs can still buy from English teams and managers are planning for the future so we’ll bring you all the latest gossip. Today, the latest on Aaron Ramsey…
Arsenal are concerned Aaron Ramsey will leave the club as Manchester United and Chelsea prepare to swoop for the contract rebel midfielder, according to the Mirror.
Ramsey has developed in to a key player at the Emirates since joining Arsenal from Cardiff City in 2008 and the midfielder has provided 59 goals and 57 assists in 333 appearances to help win 3 FA Cup’s in recent years.
However, the Welsh international’s future in north London is far from certain as he’s in the final year of his contract and is yet to come to an agreement over an extension despite his agents holding extensive talks with Arsenal’s hierarchy.
Unai Emery is desperate to keep hold of Ramsey and reports last week suggested that Arsenal were growing increasingly confident they will agree terms over a new deal that would see the player commit his future to the club.
But the Mirror are now citing fresh reports from the Sun that claim Arsenal are in fact concerned that Ramsey is leaning towards leaving the club as contract talks continue to stall.
The situation has alerted rival Premier League teams as the report says Manchester United and Chelsea are monitoring developments closely and are ready to swoop if Ramsey doesn’t pen a new deal in north London.
Arsenal handed Mesut Ozil a bumper contract worth a reported £350,000-a-week back in January and no doubt Ramsey’s agents are using that deal as a benchmark in their negotiations.
The Gunners will struggle to make room for another high-earner on their books but the Mirror suggests that Ramsey could easily command £250,000-a-week from the likes of United or Chelsea if he becomes a free agent next summer.
We’ll have to wait and see how things develop but United or Chelsea could even try and land the Welshman in a cut-price deal in January if an agreement isn’t found with Arsenal over the coming weeks.
