Bundesliga giants eyeing swoop for surplus Arsenal playmaker

Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich are said to be eyeing a potential swoop for surplus Arsenal playmaker Aaron Ramsey, who is poised to depart the Emirates as a free agent next summer.

The Welshman’s current deal expires in 2019, and it’s subsequently believed that the north-Londoners have informed the 27-year-old that he will not be granted the opportunity to pen an extension.

As clubs outside of England are permitted to sign Premier League players in the final six months of their respective deals, Sky Sports Germany understand that Bayern could indeed approach Ramsey and his representatives with a pre-contract agreement in January.

Ramsey’s future at Arsenal had been shrouded for months before the club finally conveyed their reasoning behind their decision to deny the midfielder a new long-term contract in October.

Dismayed by the matter, Ramsey was allegedly informed by his agent that Arsenal weren’t prepared to prolong his service. Prior to learning his fate, the Wales international openly expressed that he was waiting for a club official to outline the pressing issue to him personally.

“Somebody will come up and tell me why”, he said, although evidently nothing concrete, insightful or conclusive initially materialised.

Joining Arsenal in 2008 for just under £5m from Cardiff City, Ramsey ultimately realises that the 2018-19 campaign will be his last at the Gunners, having spent a decade on the club’s books.

With 341 appearances and 59 goals to his name, the studied craftsman’s presence has helped shepherd Arsenal to 3 FA Cup triumphs during his spell in the capital. But as his proven influence seemingly isn’t a required factor in Unai Emery’s revolutionary blueprints, Ramsey could, perhaps, be swayed to pack his bags for Bavaria, if a sufficient package is tabled by Die Roten.
