Journalist Claims ‘No Agreement Is in Place’ Between Bayern Munich & Arsenal for Aaron Ramsey

​Sport Bild journalist Christian Falk has revealed that there is no agreement in place between Bayern Munich and Arsenal over the transfer of Aaron Ramsey. 

The 27-year-old’s contract at the Emirates Stadium is set to expire at the end of this season, with both the Bundesliga side and Paris Saint-Germain linked with the Welsh international.

Despite recent speculation regarding a proposed move to ​Bayern Munich, Falk has confirmed, via his ​official Twitter account, that no deal has been agreed between Die Roten and the Gunners.

Of course, Bayern would not need to approach Arsenal to sign Ramsey from January 1st so long as he doesn’t sign a new deal, as foreign clubs are allowed to approach players within the last six months of their contract. Recent reports have suggested that Bayern would look to seal a pre-contract agreement with the player with a view to signing him for nothing in the summer.

​Ramsey has featured 16 times in all competitions this season, scoring once and providing four assists under new manager Unai Emery, although with no sign of a new contract being agreed between himself and ​Arsenal, it looks as if this could be his final year at the club. 

The midfielder has been with the north London side since 2008 having left boyhood club Cardiff City for £5.76m, and has gone on to make 347 appearances for the Gunners, scoring 47 goals. 

Should Ramsey leave the club on a free transfer at the end of the campaign, he will follow in the footsteps of midfielder Jack Wilshere, who did the same at the end of the 2017/18 season, before signing a deal to remain in London with West Ham United. 


Arsenal have made a promising start to the season under Emery, and are only three points behind bitter rivals Tottenham in the Premier League, who currently sit in fourth place with 27 points. 


PSG Reportedly Plotting Move for Arsenal Star Aaron Ramsey When Contract Expires

​Ligue One giants Paris Saint Germain are reportedly looking to join the race to sign Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsey next summer when the Welshman’s contract expires at the Emirates.

Ramsey’s contract troubles at Arsenal have become common knowledge in the past couple of months, and it’s now understood that the north London club will not look to extend the Welshman’s contract next summer. This news has alerted multiple of Europe’s top clubs, and while Bayern Munich were thought to be confident of signing the midfielder, it’s understood they’ll now face competition.

According to Paris United, PSG have made contact with Ramsey and his representatives in order to try and arrange a deal for next summer. The Parisian club have been searching for a midfielder since the departures of Thiago Motta and Giovani Lo Celso and appear to have settled on Ramsey as an adequate replacement.

It’s understood that former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger alerted the French club to the availability of the Welsh midfielder, though there are doubts over Ramsey’s ability to stay fit for prolonged periods of time, after numerous serious injuries during his Arsenal career.

Ramsey isn’t the only option for PSG however, Paris United report that the club have also been keeping tabs on Watford’s Abdoulaye Doucoure, though there’s been limited progress in that regard, with Watford seemingly unwilling to sell. 

If PSG do decide to pursue Ramsey next summer, it appears they’ll have some significant competition, so they’ll do well to tie up a deal in principle as soon as possible.


AS Roma Bracing for January Onslaught as Trio of Premier League Clubs Chase Cengiz Ünder

Roma are braced for a January bidding war over Cengiz Ünder, as Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal keep tabs on the Turkish forward. 

Ünder, 21, signed from Basaksehir last summer, and has gone on to become an important player for the Serie A side in a short space of time, making 46 appearances and scoring 11 goals in all competitions.

According to ​CalcioMercato, his performances have attracted some flattering glances, to the point that ​Roma are considering awarding the player new terms, with the caveat of a €60m release clause.

The new deal, however, is not expected to be in place in time for the January window, meaning it will not act as a deterrent should ​Premier League interest in his signature come to fruition during the winter window.


The report states that the right offer would represent a substantial profit on the fee they paid for him almost 18 months ago – no surprise considering that was around the €13.4m mark.

Bayern Munich are listed as another interested party, so decisive action would have to be taken from any of the three Premier League clubs in order to see off stiff competition for the Turkish international winger’s signature.

​Liverpool are no stranger to a signing from Roma, having acquired Mo Salah and Alisson Becker for substantial fees, so it would come as no surprise to see them raid the Serie A side once again for Under. 


​Arsenal, meanwhile, are thought to be in the market for another attacker, while it’s difficult to see where Ünder would fit in at league leaders ​Manchester City, given he’d be competing for places with Raheem Sterling, Leroy Sane and Riyad Mahrez.. 


Arsene Wenger Reveals What He Misses About Management & Speaks of Desire to Get Back into Football

​Arsene Wenger has spoken openly about his desire to get back into football, revealing that he misses the competitiveness, togetherness and sense of achievement that the sport gave him.

Wenger left Arsenal in May after 22 years in charge of the North London club, leaving him out of work for the first time since 1995. 

The 69-year-old insists that he is not retired from football and would be open to taking another managerial job, despite recently ​turning down the chance to take over from Slavisa Jokanovic at ​Fulham.

“I don’t feel retired at all but I feel frustrated from competition,” said Wenger, quoted by ​the Mirror. “I am basically a competitor and what I miss – honestly there are many things I don’t miss at all, like all of the stuff around the game you have to deal with.

“But of course, the day, the competition, the achievement that you can do together, sharing emotions, sharing competitions, ups and downs with others, of course you miss that because I spent my life in that.”

Wenger also spoke about his emotions the day after leaving ​Arsenal and realising he didn’t have a game to look ahead to for the first time in 23 years.

“I remember very well, I was a bit lost because you have time in front of you, and that was never the case before,” he said.

“You always had a problem to sort out and when you sorted it out you had another one coming straight away, and suddenly you don’t have that in front of you.”

Having vowed not to work for another Premier League club, Wenger has been waiting for the right opportunity to come up in Europe. He has been linked with the managerial position at ​Bayern Munich and a technical role at Paris Saint-Germain in recent weeks, but for now must bide his time.


Arsene Wenger Names the One Condition PSG Must Meet for Him to Accept Technical Role

​Arsene Wenger is happy to take up a senior role at Paris Saint-Germain, but will only do so if the French champions get rid of their current sporting director, Antero Henrique.

Wenger travelled to Qatar last week to meet with Sheikh Al Thani, a member of the Qatari royal family which owns PSG. He has also met with manager Thomas Tuchel, who is keen for the Frenchman to come on board.

However, ​Paris United reports that Wenger will not accept the position unless PSG dispense with the services of Henrique, who does not get on well with Tuchel.

PSG are prepared to offer Wenger a role above Henrique in the club hierarchy, but Wenger’s demands are non-negotiable, giving club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi a difficult decision to make.

Al-Khelaifi doesn’t want to anything which might disrupt PSG’s start to the season. Tuchel’s side have won all 13 Ligue 1 matches so far, although they sit 3rd in their Champions League group behind ​Napoli and ​Liverpool.

PSG must act quickly if they want to appoint Wenger though, as a man of his knowledge and experience will not be available for long.

​AC Milan, ​Real Madrid and the United States national team have all taken an interest in appointing Wenger, and ​Bayern Munich approached him about taking a technical position at the Allianz Arena.

Wenger has not ruled out a return to management and ​turned down the Fulham job this week before the Cottagers appointed Claudio Ranieri to replace Slavisa Jokanovic.

Wenger promised when he left ​Arsenal at the end of last season that he would not manage another Premier League team, but he is open to taking a job in Europe.
