Arsenal legend unimpressed with club’s handling of Aaron Ramsey

Arsenal legend David Seaman has been left fuming with the Gunners’ decision to run down the contract of Aaron Ramsey. The Wales international had initially been tipped to sign a contract extension with the Gunners before the club’s hierarchy decided to rescind the offer on the table in September.

Thereafter, there were suggestions that the Gunners could cash in on the Welshman’s services at the turn of the year but that was, however, not the case which left Ramsey with the option of agreeing a pre-contract with Juventus. Speaking to TalkSPORT, Seaman has said that he has been unimpressed with the Gunners’ decision of letting Ramsey leave on a Bosman when his contract expires in the summer.

In a report covered by The Mail, the former United right-back highlighted that Emery needs at least four to five transfer windows to sort out the mess at the north London side. He added that the Spaniard wants players, who can transform the club to the next level and the likes of Ozil and Ramsey may not fit into the scheme of things.

Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsey on the radar of Inter Milan

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has been deemed to have reached a verbal agreement to join Inter Milan when the current season comes to a close.

According to La Repubblica, the Nerazzurri are understood to have agreed personal terms with the former Cardiff City graduate which would witness him join the club at the end of the season.

What I can assure you is that any decision we take at the club of any kind, whether it concerns players or any other thing, it is very thoroughly thought through, analysed and discussed by different people.”

The Wales international has just eight months remaining on his existing contract with Arsenal and reports have already indicated that the club are not interested in discussing a renewal for him.

In a report covered by The Star, Merson said that the Reds should attempt to pursue Ramsey in January, should they hold an interest in the midfielder’s services, he quipped: “If Liverpool want him they might as well do a deal now. He would fit in there and he would help them challenge for the title. Manchester City are a much stronger, deeper team than Liverpool at the moment, but Ramsey could help change that. Whoever gets him will be getting a very good player. He makes good runs, scores goals, and has the vision to pick a pass.”

After having spent more than a decade at Arsenal, Ramsey also believes that it is time for a change. After joining Arsenal from Cardiff back in 2008, Ramsey has made more than 240 appearances for the club.

Aaron is there for maybe 10 years, he's a legend in the club so we have to be respectful for everything he has done. Of course, with his quality he can help the team to be better. He's an example for all the young players. Of course we need Aaron in the team."
