Chelsea are planning to launch a late bid to sign Aaron Ramsey as Arsenal are prepared to sell the midfielder, according to reports.
The 27-year-old has just under a year remaining on his current contract with the Gunners and would be able to leave the club on a free transfer next summer if he fails to sign a new deal.
Arsenal have been in talks with Ramsey’s agent this summer but so far an agreement has not been reached and the midfielder admitted last month that he is unsure when negotiations would be resolved.
According to the Sunday Express, Chelsea are ready to capitalise by submitting an offer for Ramsey in the closing stages of the summer transfer window, which closes on Thursday.
The report also claims that Arsenal are ‘ready to sell’ Ramsey in order to fund more new signings to boost their own squad.
