Aaron Ramsey helped fire Arsenal to a 2-0 goal lead in the first leg of their Europa League quarter-final.
In the home clash against Napoli, Ramsey scored the opener before Lucas Torreira’s deflected shot gave the Gunners a commanding lead.
It was yet another masterclass from Ramsey, who has hit a purple patch of form in recent weeks.
But the Wales international midfielder will be leaving Arsenal at the end of this season. His contract is due to expire and Juventus have signed him up for next year.
The 28-year-old will end an 11-year stay in North London, chalking up nearly 400 appearances by the end of the season.
Many Arsenal fans regret the decision to let Ramsey leave, rather than matching his wage demands.
Without his creative spark in midfield, Arsenal could find themselves struggling in some games. They will need to spend some money this summer to secure a Ramsey replacement.
And after Unai Emery praised the ex-Cardiff City man, Arsenal supporters expressed regret that he is departing.
Here are some tweets from Arsenal fans who are ruing the decision to let Ramsey leave this summer.
So glad we have tied him to a long contract with us.

The decision not to renew his contract will go down as one of the worst ever made in British football.

Please lets pay Juventus 100million to tear off @aaronramsey deal. A midfielder as good as him will cost us nothing less than that and if not more
