Manchester United, Chelsea, Juventus and Real Madrid are all in the race for Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey.

The Wales international has been strongly linked with a move away from the Emirates Stadium during the summer transfer window.

The 27-year-old has eventually decided to remain at the North London side, although he refused to sign a new contract with the club.

It was reported that Ramsey is asking a mega-deal from the club, but according to reports Arsenal have aborted talks on a new contract due to Welshman’s demands.

According to Teamtalk, Juventus, Chelsea and Manchester United have all been linked to the former Cardiff City midfielder.

But Real Madrid, who want Luka Modric replacement at Bernabeu, are said to be in pole position for Ramsey’s signature.

Wales captain and Madrid winger Gareth Bale is reportedly believed to be asked by his club to give his contribution in convincing his fellow countryman.

Ramsey, whose contract at the Emirates is due to expire at the end of this season, is reportedly planning to leave Arsenal in the summer on a free transfer.

Former England and Tottenham midfielder Jermaine Jenas believes Arsenal fans shouldn’t be worried by Ramsey departing if he leaves for a top club.

“If I was an Arsenal fan, which I’m obviously not, it’s not something that would worry me heavily if I’m totally honest with you,” he said on BBC Radio 5 Live.

“He’s obviously at that stage during his career where, from a financial aspect, he’s going to be looking for a big deal, which is why the club seemed to have bulked and gone ‘not so sure about that’ and eventually pulled the offer.”

“Does he fit into what he wants to do, the manager? I’m not sure he does.”

“I don’t think he’s athletic enough, I don’t think he’s got the speed and also the power in the style that he wants to play.”

“There’s no doubting Aaron Ramsey is a top, top player and I’m not saying he’s not.”

“He will go to a big club I feel because he’s that quality. Sometimes it just doesn’t fit into the style of player the manager wants.”

“We haven’t seen the Aaron Ramsey have we where he got nearly 20 goals (in a season) for a few seasons now.”

“It’s not like when there was the possibility of letting Ozil go or the possibility of letting Sanchez go in the same season.”

“I don’t feel like that about this one – I think it might work out best for both if I’m totally honest.”

Ramsey joined the Gunners in 2008 from Cardiff City and has since gone on to score 58 times in 337 appearances for the North London side.
