Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich have won the race to sign Arsenal star Aaron Ramsey, according to a report.
The Wales international is set to leave the Gunners after it was confirmed he would not be signing a new deal at the Emirates Stadium.
Ramsey was known to have been unhappy that nobody from the club had directly explained their reasons for them withdrawing the offer of a new long-term contract following months of discussions between the two parties.
The likes of Chelsea, Man Utd, Liverpool, Juventus and AC Milan have all been linked with moves for Ramsey, who will be free to discuss terms with foreign clubs from January – while Roma were tipped to pitch a swap deal involving Patrick Schick.
However, a report from the Independent claims that Bayern Munich have held successful talks with Ramsey’s representatives over joining the German champions.
Manager Niko Kovac is apparently desperate to reinforce his squad and close the gap on Borussia Dortmund.
Bayern signed Schalke star Leon Goretzka on a free transfer in the summer on a four-year deal, and Ramsey is expected to pen similar terms.
