Express: Chelsea reportedly leading the race to sign Aaron Ramsey
- Maurizio Sarri's side allegedly offered €35 million for the 27-year-old Gunners midfielder
- Liverpool are also interested in Welshman
- The summer transfer window shuts on Thursday, August 9
According to the latest the Sunday Express report, Arsenal Premier League rivals Chelsea are on the verge of signing the 27-year-old Welshman, whose contract with the Gunners expires next summer.
The offered fee is reported to be around €35 million. This could be enough to convince Unai Emery to part with Arsenal hero and have time to sign a new player before the summer transfer window shuts.
Without Ramsey, Arsenal's midfield would be well-handled with such names as Emile Smith-Rowe, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and first Unai Emery's signings in the person of pre-season star Mattéo Guendouzi and highly-rated Lucas Torreira.
Apart from Chelsea, Aaron Ramsey has been heavily linked with the move to another Premier League club Liverpool. No official offers have been made yet.
