According to reports in France PSG are willing to offer Aaron Ramsey a contract in January, in a deal that would bring in €15-20m for Arsenal.
The Welsh midfielder had a contract offer withdrawn in October, and does not appear to be part of Unai Emery’s long-term plans.
The 27 year old came off the bench during the 1-1 draw with Brighton at the Amex Stadium, but it’s likely his future will be elsewhere and the Gunners – in need of additions to the squad in defence and beyond – could be tempted by the money.

With more questions over the future of Mesut Ozil after his half-time withdrawal, Arsenal might well need to think carefully about the creative element of the team.
Ramsey’s departure in January would see the club’s leading central midfield goalscorer depart, with not much sign of anyone else picking up that slack.
Of course the money could be invested in a replacement, but with central defensive issues pressing the chances any cash would be spent in that area.
