Arsenal supporters have forgiven Unai Emery and the Arsenal board for a lot of things they’ve done over the years, but the one thing that still pains many of us is how they forced Aaron Ramsey out of the club.
The Welshman was one of the stars of Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal. He entered the final year of his contract when the legendary Gunners boss left, and he had a very good debut season under Emery too.
However, Arsenal withdrew their contract offer for whatever reason and Ramsey had to move away. He joined Italian giants Juventus on a free transfer, but it now looks like his time in Turin is coming to an end as well.
Il Bianconero reveal today that Ramsey wants to return to England this summer. He already has an offer on the table from Premier League side Everton, but the report claims that he prefers a return to Arsenal.
It is claimed that Everton’s offer intrigues the Welshman, but he would leave Juventus immediately if an offer from Arsenal, who are now managed by his former teammate Mikel Arteta, arrives in the weeks leading up to the summer transfer window.
Arteta and Ramsey know each other very well having played together in midfield for five years. The Arsenal boss knows exactly what the Welsh wizard is capable of, but is that enough to convince him to make a move this summer?
The Insider’s View:
It really would be a fairytale to see Rambo return to the Emirates and have a real impact. He was one of our best players for years during his time here and it was a shame that we didn’t extend his deal when he was ready to stay.
Two years down the line, Ramsey is 30 now. His injury problems have not gone away and although he is still more than capable of having a real impact at the top level, it makes zero sense for Arsenal to bring him back.
We’ve seen the consequences of giving 30+ year-olds big contracts already. The last thing we need is a repeat of that, and that is why we think this deal is extremely unlikely to happen, even though Ramsey would like to return and we’d like to see him back.
