Aaron Ramsey is reportedly a January transfer target for Ivan Gazidis as he heads to the Serie A and AC Milan.
It’s now clear that Aaron Ramsey is in the final year of his Arsenal career but the question still remains whether he will leave in January or the summer.
There is a personal benefit for Ramsey to leave in the summer and receive what would be an increased signing-on bonus.
However, should the Welshman leave in the January window then Arsenal would be in line for a transfer fee and be free from several months of wages.
Per gennaio si ragiona su come rinforzare la squadra, in particolare a centrocampo.
Inoltre si sta monitorando seriamente la situazione di #Ramsey, in attesa di capire se realmente andrà a parametro.
E ora torno a raccontare di calcio giocato.

Now, there are reports that Arsenal’s outgoing CEO Ivan Gazidis has made Aaron Ramsey a transfer target for AC Milan.
The news comes on the same day as a now-deleted series of tweets from Ramsey’s representatives, Avid Sports Entertainment.
“You’re right it isn’t always greener and he didn’t want to leave, but now there is no other option,” read one tweet in reference to the grass not being greener for former Arsenal man Alexis Sanchez.
So that’s that then….

“The club made a decision. Life goes on.”
It’s probably an intentional move from Ramsey’s representatives. Multiple reports have claimed that there has been a contract offer on the table for Aaron Ramsey to sign for upwards of a year. It was the player and his representative’s decision to run down his current deal in the hope of securing a big-money contract. A move to AC Milan in January would be the best solution for all parties.
