The Sun claim that the Gunners believed they had made a breakthrough and were on the brink of agreeing a new £250,000-a-week contract, which would have ended months of prolonged negotiations.
Gazidis is expected to agree and sign off on any additional clauses and amendments to the contract but for the moment it appears he has at least had his head turned. The Sun
Arsenal will plan to press ahead with finalising a deal with or without Gazidis but for the moment they cannot continue until a decision is reached. The most recent set back will have Gunners fans sweating though as Ramsey’s current contract is set to expire at the end of the season.
The player will be free to sign a pre-agreement with any foreign club in less than four months’ time. Reports have also emerged on the possibility of Ramsey joining AC Milan, with the Italian club potentially set to deliver a double blow to the Premier League side in the coming months.
