Transfer expert McGarry reckons Ramsey could turn his back on Arsenal
- The 27-year-old Wales international can sign a new deal with another club in winter and move there for free as Emre Can did with Juventus, according to transfer expert Ian McGarry
- McGarry reckons Aaron Ramsey has enough qualities to move abroad
Speaking to the Sky Sports' Transfer Podcast, transfer expert Ian McGarry claims Liverpool are seeking to land Aaron Ramsey before the transfer window shuts:
"I don’t think he’s particularly worried about [moving by the deadline] because as of January he can sign a pre-contract with any club outside of England as Emre Can did with Juventus and move next summer for free when the fee that would be demanded for him now - £35m to £40m - would be paid to him in wages as a signing on fee.
"To me, Ramsey is again one of the few candidates of British players who would happily go abroad and ply his trade and learn the language and fit in and be a success.
"So his options are not purely limited to the Premier League.
"I think it would be a big loss to Emery and Arsenal but at the same time, I get the feeling with Emery that he is not one to stand on tradition and culture.
"We saw the way Jack Wilshere, someone who had been endlessly indulged with the contract despite the way he recovered from injuries, we saw the way Emery was quite cold in telling him ‘you might be a sub’.
"It’s not come to that with Ramsey yet. He’s not been told he won’t be a starting player."
Arsenal head coach Unai Emery, by the way, has revealed he'd like Aaron Ramsey to stay at Arsenal no matter what: "I think my opinion is clear, I want him to be with us, but then it’s one question for the player and the club. My opinion is professional and is in the interest of the team."
