Aaron Ramsey might be getting ready to leave Arsenal behind after reaching a ‘verbal agreement’ to end his stay at the Emirates Stadium.
The 27-year-old Welshman has been a target for both Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich, but it looks like a third party has entered the race and could land the Gunners star when his contract expires.
According to La Repubblica (via Football Italia), Inter Milan are reportedly close to landing the Wales international next summer.
It is reported that the Italian club met with Ramsey’s representatives and have ‘reached in principle’ an agreement for him to arrive at the San Siro on 1st July.
However, it would seem that Inter Milan boss Luciano Spalletti wants to push the move ahead to January.
The 59-year-old Italian has reportedly said that he would ‘need him immediately,’ with I Nerazzurri CEO Giuseppe ‘Beppe’ Marotta pushing ahead with a deal for January.
Ramsey has asked for ‘€6-€7m a season’ and the club are ready to meet his wage bills, with the Italian newspaper suggesting that the Serie A side have ‘the urgency to invest.’
Earlier this month, Arsenal manager Unai Emery revealed that the club have no plans to continue contract negotiations with Ramsey (for now at least).
“His present is as I want, and his future is very important for him and his family,” he said (via the Daily Telegraph). “I think in the last matches the focus [is there].
“His focus is positive for us, it helps us.
“He needs to think about his future, for his family and for him. If he plays like yesterday [against Tottenham Hotspur], it’s the best for him and the best for us.”
Would Inter Milan be the right fit for Ramsey?
