There have been many interesting Arsenal transfer rumours this month, but most have been concerning players that may be coming to the Emirates (except for Matthieu Debuchy) as cover for our never-ending injury list.
But today the Express is reporting that the Barcelona manager Luis Enrique is a big fan of our very own Aaron Ramsey and has let Arsene Wenger know that he is intending to table a massive £50 million bid for the Welsh midfielder this summer.
The Catalan giants have just ended an 18 month transfer ban so have been quietly sourcing players for the future to regain their place as the top team in the world, and apparently the two players they want from the Premier League are Ramsey and Everton’s John Stones. Now I know that Arsenal fans rate John Stones highly and would love him to come to the Emirates, but I’m not sure how many of us would think that £50 million is a rather inflated price tag for Aaron.
All of us thought he had great promise, and when he finally came good a couple of seasons ago, Aaron was absolutely fantastic. But for some reason he has never recovered that brilliant form whatever position he plays in.
Let me ask the question this way. If you consider how much Arsenal paid for players like Ozil and Alexis, would you turn down £50million if Barcelona came in with the offer?
