David Ornstein has announced that there will be no more big Arsenal signings after the arrival of Lucas Torreira, but now that it has been revealed that the Gunners are in talks with Sevilla for Steven N’Zonzi, it could simply mean that Ornstein didn’t take into account that we may need to replace some departing players.
As far as I can see, the only possible midfield departure is Aaron Ramsey, who has entered the final year of his contract and will be much coveted by many top English sides, so he would easily cover the cost of bringing in N’Zonzi if he was sold.
Ramsey may be feeling a little lonely at Arsenal right now, as he is the last playing member of the so-called British Core. Well Carl Jenkinson is back from his loan but there is little chance of him actually playing for us again.
Jack Wilshere has finnally left after 10 years as a professional at the club, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain forced a move to Liverpool last summer. Kieran Gibbs never really became a regular either and was moved on.
So perhaps Ramsey has also decided to move onto new pastures?
