Arsenal are considering a move for Juventus defender Mehdi Benatia according to reports in Italy, a move which could see Aaron Ramsey move in the opposite direction.

Now I don't watch enough of the Premier League to know the answer to that question, but I suggest to those who do to think of it in these terms. Arsenal were apparently unwilling to let him leave united the end of the season, with Emery preferring to have the player available for selection at the club rather than receive a miserly transfer fee for a player with six months left on his deal. The trio chose to withdraw the offer of a new deal to Ramsey in September although the head coach was sounded out about the move.

But Gunners chiefs chose to revoke their offer to the Welshman in November, meaning the player will leave on a free at the end of the season.

But if Juve, Bayern and Liverpool are so keen to fight it out for Ramsey, who has been a solid servant for Arsenal since arriving from Cardiff City as a teenager in 2008, why has Emery already written him off as being surplus to requirements?

Ramsey has made 24 appearances for Arsenal this season, scoring 3 goals and creating 6 more.

"Will Ramsey play with us after July?"

Meanwhile, Arsenal are looking to strengthen their midfield options in January by signing wantaway Barcelona player Denis Suarez.

However, Emery wants to keep Ramsey especially as there are fears that Juve won't allow Khedira to move this month. "If the transfer market gives us [an] opportunity, we can sign one or two players".

"Emery doesn't look at the contract - he looks at the player".
