Arsenal could use the money raised from a January sale of one midfielder to try and land a Sevilla star, a report claims.
Aaron Ramsey is expected leave Arsenal at the end of the season, with reports claiming that there is no new contract offer on the table for the midfielder.
The Gunners are now preparing to lose the 27-year-old on a free next summer, after a sudden breakdown in communications between the club and the player, despite Ramsey being keen to stay.
The Wales star was said to be ready to commit his future to Unai Emery’s men but the Daily Mirror claims that there is now no contract to sign, as AC Milan are linked with a move for the player.
Now, The Sun are reporting that Arsenal will use the money saved from Aaron Ramsey’s failed contract negotiations in a bid to land his replacement.
They have identified Sevilla and Argentina midfielder Ever Banega as the ideal successor to Ramsey, with the 30-year-old apparently possessing an £18m release clause.
