Arsenal look completely transformed under Unai Emery. The Gunners, however, have several players on the final year of their contracts and one of them could join their rivals.
Arsenal look completely new under new manager Unai Emery. After stepping down of Arsene Wenger after 22 years, the Gunners couldn’t ask for a perfect start. With 9 wins in a row in all competitions for the first time in 3 seasons, Unai Emery could give Arsenal a winning momentum they want. However, it seems one of Arsenal’s star could be joining the Gunner’s arch-rivals.
According to ESPN FC, Arsenal contract rebel Aaron Ramsey would be open to joining Manchester United or Chelsea. Aaron Ramsey is open to joining one of the Gunner’s top six rivals if he leaves the Emirates. The Welshman is out of contract at the end of the season. He has seen the offer of a new deal rescinded by his club in recent time. Ramsey, 27 will take his time to consider his options.

He is open to staying in the Premier League with one of Arsenal’s direct rivals if he is forced to move on. According to resources at ESPN FC, Manchester United and Chelsea are keen on signing the Welshman. However, it seems Liverpool are not keen on luring Ramsey. Manchester United and Chelsea are preparing to sign him if he is available for nothing.
The Red Devils tried to sign Ramsey over a decade ago but he ended up penning a deal with Arsenal. Ramsey could also negotiate with a foreign team from January, with Juventus reportedly interested. Serie A clubs like Juventus and Lazio are keen in signing the Welshmen. The Wales midfielder has developed into a key player for Arsenal since being signed by Arsene Wenger from Cardiff City in 2008.
It looks like Ramsey will follow the footsteps of former Arsenal players by joining the rival clubs. Ramsey has made his decision that he won’t leave the club in the January transfer window. So it means he has indirectly alerted all the clubs that he might be available for free next summer. It would be a huge loss for Arsenal to let Ramsey go for free.
