There is still huge speculation surrounding Arsenal’s midfield players, with much of it surrounding the future of Aaron Ramsey.
The Welshman is supposedly high on Chelsea and Barcelona’s wishlist, with only a year remaining on his current contract, and depending which sources you believe, he is either wanting to leave the club for a new challenge, or close to agreeing terms on a new contract.
With Rambo’s future in limbo, there is much speculation that we will be bringing in another central star to replace him, and Unai Emery’s close working with Steven N’Zonzi from his time in Seville keeps seeing him linked.
There was talk of an agreement between Roma and Seville speculated last week, but that has since been quashed, and he could well remain on our radar as we look to add to our spending spree of the summer.
Lucas Torreira has already come in, likely to be a replacement for the departed Santi Cazorla and Jack Wilshere however, and you should still expect another arrival should Aaron leave the club also, an instance that I do not wish to see however.
Ramsey was our player of the season last term, and rightly so, and his exit would be a huge setback as we look to close to gap on our rivals.
IF, and that is a huge IF, the only available player who I think I could be almost be pleased about coming in his place would be Mateo Kovacic, although Torreira may well prove to be special enough to come into the first team straight away.
Is Torreira ready to step straight into the first-team? Can we afford to lose Rambo this summer? Could Iwobi maybe get a move to play centrally?
