Chelsea ready to take unsettled Ramsey to Stamford Bridge Guest post by Iomie from icFootball
Chelsea are reportedly eyeing up a shock summer move for Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey in the summer transfer window.
Ramsey is about to enter the final year of his contract and Chelsea are monitoring the situation with a view to a possible deal if a new contract is not signed.
Ramsey has even admitted that he is well down the pecking order at Arsenal when it comes to resolving contract situations.
And that has alerted a number of clubs to a possible summer transfer deal.
‘Nothing to comment on at the moment,’ he told BT Sport ahead of Arsenal’s win over AC Milan.
‘I think they’ve been busy to tie up other contracts at the moment.’
And now the Daily Mirror website have claimed Chelsea are lining up a surprise move for the Welshman, as they look to overhaul their squad this summer.
Chelsea have been knocked out the Champions League and are fifth in the Premier League, with a very slim chance of closing the gap on the likes of Tottenham and Liverpool for a top four spot.
Chelsea also tried to sign Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain last summer, before the England midfielder rejected them to join Liverpool in August.
Arsenal do not want a repeat of this season, as the likes of Mesut Ozil, Jack Wilshere and Alexis Sanchez all were coming to the end of their contracts, with the latter deciding to join Manchester United.
But would Wenger let another one of Arsenal’s stars join a main rival?
