Arsenal still have our on loan keeper Wojciech Szczesny in the Poland squad as well as the French international pair of Laurent Koscielny and Olivier Giroud and the Germany play maker Mesut Ozil to look out for at Euro 2016, but after Jack Wilshere could not prevent England from crashing out with an abject display against Iceland yesterday, Aaron Ramsey is our only central midfielder left in the tournament.
And the fact that Rambo has been a major factor in Wales surprising everyone (except maybe long suffering England fans) by winning their group and making it to the quarter-final stage could prove to be a big boost for Arsenal and for the player’s first team chances.
There is a lot of competition at Arsenal in that central area, especially now that Wilshere and Santi Cazorla are fit again, but Ramsey is doing himself a big favour with his performances for the Welsh team. Even if they go out in the next match against Belgium he will come back for pre-season very happy with his summer and will surely be more confident and in form than his English of Spanish team mates.
We have the new signing Granit Xhaka to consider as well as Francis Coquelin but I expect they will be fighting for the deepest lying midfield position and the same could be true of Mohamed Elneny, so will his Euro performances see Ramsey as a first choice starter for Arsenal next season?
