Could Arsenal Stun all with last Ditch Aaron Ramsey Swap Deal
There appears to be a potential twist in the summer transfer dealings for the Gunners with Welsh midfielder Aaron Ramsey at the centre of a possible swap deal.
Ramsey has reportedly been stalling a signing a new deal with that club after a number of clubs have been rumoured to be interested and sources in the red tops claim that Unai Emery is hoping his hierarchy can push through a swap deal for wantaway Barcelona star Ousmane Dembele.
The 21-year-old World Cup winner only joined Barcelona from Borussia Dortmund 12 months ago but played just 17 league games despite his whopping 105 million Euros fee.
Barcelona has shown an interest in the 27-year-old former Cardiff City man and a swap deal could be of interest for both parties and potentially keep both sets of supporters happy.
Although Arsenal has been busy in the transfer market this summer, there has been no marquee names brought into the club as of yet with former Sampdoria defensive midfielder Lucas Torreira the biggest addition to the squad so far.
However, after his performances at the World Cup with Uruguay, Arsenal may have gotten themselves something of a bargain at £27 million for the talented 22-year-old.
The addition of another central midfielder Mattéo Guendouzi from Lorient could be a shrewd move but at just 19 is more one for the future.
Juventus defender Stephan Lichtsteiner on a free transfer makes complete sense considering his age of 34, whilst Borussia Dortmund center-back Sokratis is a useful if uninspiring acquisition.
Dembele may still only be 21 but has proved more than capable in three of Europe’s elite leagues after starting his career with Ligue 1 side Rennes and will certainly excite the Gunners faithful.
However, there is still a long way to go and no doubt plenty more twists and turns before the transfer window slams shut for another summer.
