Aaron Ramsey race down to two Big Six clubs – report

Aaron Ramsey Arsenal

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey will be a free transfer target for Chelsea and Manchester United, according to ESPN FC.

Ramsey has had his offer of a new Gunners deal rescinded by Arsenal and is said to be keen on staying within the Premier League’s elite.

ESPN claim that Liverpool are not interested in Ramsey – despite needing a creative midfielder – but that Chelsea and Manchester United ‘are prepared to monitor the situation in the event he is available for nothing’.

Ramsey will be free to negotiate with a foreign team in January, or Arsenal may choose to sell in January for a nominal fee.

Asked whether he would give Ramsey a new contract if he were still in the position to do so, Arsene Wenger said this weekend: “We tried that before and it still can happen.

“I don’t really know what is happening at Arsenal. Sure, Aaron Ramsey is in a strong position now and he will use this position.

“But I don’t know how far Arsenal will go in terms of giving him a huge contract. These things were once my responsibility but not anymore. I am happy about that.”
