Arsenal transfer fixer Raul Sanllehi and Aaron Ramsey

There have been enquiries from English sides and if Ramsey was to remain in the Premier League he would favour a move to Liverpool.

The Wales global is Arsenal's longest-serving playing, having moved to the Emirates from Cardiff City as a teenager back in 2008.

Ramsey, 28, is already free to sign a pre-contract agreement with foreign clubs and had been courted by a number of big names with Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Inter Milan also reportedly interested. Ramsey will be the club's second highest paid player after Portuguese striker Cristiano Ronaldo (€ 31 million per year).

The report says Ramsey's current preference is to go overseas with Juventus leading the chase for his signature but if the 28-year-old decides to remain in the Premier League then his preference would be to join Liverpool.

Where will Ramsey be plying his trade next season?

However, Keown finds it staggering that the north London club are willing to let one of their prized assets leave for nothing.

Arsenal haven't got any money to sign players this month, except from on loan, so keeping Ramsey is a must.

Four things we learned from Manchester City vs Liverpool
He is really, I would say in the moment, in the best moment since I know him, just like as a person he is fantastic. We came through the intense period now somehow OK, but of course we have to make changes.

"My idea and focus, I say to him every day, is with us", said Arsenal's manager, per Sky Sports.

"In the last match I was very happy with him".

Ultimately Arsenal were not prepared to meet his salary demands, with some among the hierarchy regretting the new deal given to Mesut Ozil a year ago, worth £350,000 per week, and determined to avoid a repeat.

'His future is for him, his family and his agent.

"I asked him in the last match at Blackpool if he's OK to help us play, he said yes I want to play".

Ramsey has won three FA Cups in 11 years at Arsenal but it is his development into an integral squad member with proven quality that Merson thinks the Gunners will struggle to replace.
