Arsenal midfielder a possibility for Milan

Contract talks have broken down for Aaron Ramsey, but will he be on the move to Italy?

Aaron Ramsey is known to be one of the best midfielders in the Premier League. He is a key player in Emery’s side and has helped Arsenal in the decade he spent at the club. Lately, contract talks have been difficult with the Welshman and it seems likely he will not be staying much longer in North London. This has opened the door to not only AC Milan, but to many top clubs around Europe.

The Rossoneri could be looking to secure the signing of the central midfielder. Despite having quality midfielder, Milan need to add more depth into the squad and are looking to push out the bench and reserve players for more quality ones.

Ramsey is most likely going to leave Arsenal, which has opened doors to top clubs.

Last season, Ramsey scored 7 goals and assisted 10 in 24 Premier League appearances. He also proved himself on the European stage, scoring 4 and assisting 2 in 6 Europa League appearances. He had a better league record than teammate Mesut Özil.

The 27-year-old started the 2018/19 season on a high note, assisting twice in 5 Premier League starts. These amazing stats caught the eye of elite clubs. Calcio Mercato claim that Inter, Chelsea, Arsenal, Barcelona and even Real Madrid could be interested in signing Ramsey on a free next summer.

Although the clubs mentioned above are financially stronger than AC Milan, Il Diavolo have a slight advantage. New CEO Ivan Gazidis, who is expected to join in December, can help secure the signing. He is familiar with the environment, players, and situation at Arsenal which can help Milan get closer to the target.

Milan do not have the financial strength as the rest of the clubs, but Gazidis could help out.

If this is to go through, it will force departures at the club. This move can secure the departure of Montolivo, Halilovic, and Mauri. These 3 would free up space in the squad for Ramsey, who would be competing with 4 other midfielders to get a starting position.

Ramsey is a possibility for AC Milan, but it is likely he will stay in the Premier League. Top English clubs can afford to pay a high wage and the player himself could be more comfortable staying in the same country and maybe even the same city.
