Wright Backing Arsenal To Bring In Three Players With Money Saved From Ramsey Deal

Arsenal legend Ian Wright believes the club could get as many as three players to replace midfielder Aaron Ramsey.

The Gunners withdrew a contract offer to the Wales international at the beginning of the season despite the player’s current deal expiring next summer.

However, Wright believes that the money saved from giving Ramsey a new contract will be better spent on paying the wages of two or three new signings:

“I think the boss should be given, now, the time and especially the money, to try and find maybe one or two replacements for someone like Aaron Ramsey, rather than giving Aaron Ramsey the kind of money he was asking for.”

“Maybe we can get two, maybe three players at the 70, maybe £80,000-a-week level to come in and really bolster up the squad and contribute more.”

“I think it might be time for Aaron to move on and I think it is a really good move for him, so hopefully we can, whether it is this window or the summer, we can get a few players in that fill that gap.”

Ramsey is reportedly on £110,000 a week and was seeking to double his salary; something which Arsenal were seemingly unwilling to do.

The 27-year-old has been linked with the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool and Juventus in recent months, but the latest reports are that Bayern Munich are the frontrunners for his signature.

The Bundesliga side can sign Ramsey on a pre-contract agreement as early as January, with the Welshman leaving for Germany on a free transfer at the end of the season.
