Arsenal to sign Ramsey?

Arsenal to sign Ramsey?

A statement on Cardiff Citys official website suggests that Arsenal are close to signing teenage Welsh U21 midfielder Aaron Ramsey.

The statement reads:

Cardiff City were informed on Friday morning that Aaron Ramsey's preferred destination this summer is at Emirates Stadium with Arsenal.

We will now continue the dialogue with the Gunners with a view to Aaron's move being completed.

The move unlike other options, however, does not include a loan back period at Ninian Park for the 2008/09 season.

We would like to wish Aaron every success in the top flight.

Though no official statement has been made by Arsenal Football Club as yet a fee of £5m had reportedly been accepted by Cardiff prior to Ramsey talking to the Gunners boss following a flight made at the clubs expense to meet Wenger in Switzerland.

The teenager has been heavily courted by other clubs with Manchester United's website claiming on the 3rd of June that they were 'delighted' to announce having agreed terms with Cardiff City for the transfer of Aaron Ramsey subject to terms being agreed and the player passing a medical.

No deal has been finalised as yet but Ramsey seems to be sure of where he would like to play his football next season.

The deal should be a formality now - medicals, drawing up and signing contracts etc. We will see it on arsenal.com only after all that. It looks like he will challenge for the 1st team straight away, looking forward to the Carling Cup this season, as always.

Not quite the experienced signing we were anticipating but assuming, as seems likely. the deal does go through he should get his chances. Where does that leave players of a similar age like Gibbs and the like? I can see a few other youngsters leaving before the season starts.

I thinks this is just one of a few signings. As Arsene said, he is at the Euros and he has got his cheque book. Still good that a young talent prefers us over United though!

Wenger does a lot of this - gets in extreme competition for the reserves / youth, IMO just to see who can handle the competition and who cant. Thats where I feel that Bentley, Pennant and Sidwell failed his test, and why Wenger didnt have a big problem letting them go. Anyone who expresses a desire to leave and not stay and fight for his place reveals something about his attitude to Wenger. Just a theory of mine ;).

Hey this is like a Fabianski-type signing we did last year, right? Not one of those 2-3 signings to "strengthen" the first team, right? A wonderkid he might be, oh and he's British too, speaks Welsh too, a level-headed nice young man too, but he's not going straight into the first team to help with the title challenge next year, right? I guess we're happy that we're signing a great kid, but we kind of do every year, so please tell me the answer's "no" to those questions.
