Arsenal fans take to Twitter to reminisce over Aaron Ramsey

Aaron Ramsey was an incredible player for Arsenal.

The Welshman’s stay in North London was a long one.

Over the course of 11 seasons at The Emirates, the box-to-box midfield man put in 371 appearances for the Gunners, scoring 65 and assisting 65 in that time.

The 30-year-old left the club on a free transfer back in summer 2019, and has spent the subsequent two seasons at Juventus, yet he still holds a special place in the Gunners’ hearts.

The Welshman was, of course, part of three FA Cup winning squads in North London, scoring the winning goal in two of the three finals.

ULTIMATE XI Of Players Signed This Summer

First Unai Emery and now Mikel Arteta have been unable to find an adequate replacement for Ramsey, and that makes the supporters even more rueful that he was allowed to leave on a free.

The midfield options at Arsenal are certainly lacking.

Between them last season, Thomas Partey, Dani Ceballos, Granit Xhaka and Mohamed Elneny contributed just two Premier League goals between them (WhoScored).

In contrast to that, in Ramsey’s final season at Arsenal in 2018/19 he managed to chip in with four Premier League goals (Transfermarkt).

Calciomercato claimed back in early June that the Gunners could be set to be reunited with Ramsey in a swap deal for Hector Bellerin.

That failed to materialise, though, and on deadline day the Gunners watched on as Bellerin secured himself a move away from the club in the form of a loan to Real Betis (BBC).

Whether or not a future move for Ramsey comes from the Arsenal hierarchy is yet to be seen, but you can bet that the supporters would love it.
