Aaron Ramsey to leave Arsenal: The Welshman is set to leave the club after talks over a new contract between him and Arsenal have broken down.
Aaron Ramsey’s contract situation has been a pain for Arsenal ever since the turn of 2018. With an improved contract for Mesut Ozil and the arrivals of Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in January, Arsenal have been reluctant in accepting Ramsey’s demands for a new contract.

The Welshman’s current contract at the club expires in 2019, and Ramsey is free to contact other clubs over a potential move from January 1 next year.
BBC reports that Aaron Ramsey is free to sign a pre-contract agreement with other clubs from January next year.
The Welsh midfielder joined Arsenal from Cardiff City in 2008, making him the club’s longest-serving player at the moment. He signed for Arsenal in a £4.8m move.
In his ten years at Arsenal, Ramsey won three FA Cups and two Community Shield trophies. His Arsenal career was significantly stalled in 2010 when he suffered a severe leg-break against Stoke City.

BBC reports that the negotiations between both the parties have now stopped and it is unlikely that a new deal will be agreed.
Earlier, Juventus entered the race to sign Aaron Ramsey. However, reports from Calciomercato suggest that the Italian giants are hesitant to sign Ramsey on a fee in January. Instead, they’ll wait till next summer to snap the 27-year-old for free.
