AARON RAMSEY might be sorely missed if he’s allowed to depart Arsenal, says Martin Keown.
Ramsey has been closely linked with a transfer away from the Emirates subsequent 12 months as his contract expires subsequent summer time.
However he confirmed his expertise in Arsenal’s 5-1 victory over Fulham, coming off the bench and scoring 38 seconds later.
Following a sensational transfer, which included flicks aplenty and greater than a sprinkling of magic, Ramsey timed his run into the field completely and backheeled fellow sub Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s cross into the far nook, touching the bottom of the put up on the best way in.
And Keown, 52, thinks in the present day confirmed what Arsenal might be dropping if they permit the midfielder to depart.
He stated: “I will be sorry to see him go away – when he comes on he’s the icing on the cake.
“I believe he is saying in his celebration ‘That is what you get in the event you pay the cash.’
“He is likely to be what others are incomes. Mesut Ozil wasn’t there and he wasn’t missed.
“It’s out of his fingers and he is seeing what’s on the market.”
Ramsey changed the impressed Alex Iwobi – who produced a powerful nutmeg to get previous Cyrus Christie within the first half – halfway via the second half and his goal-of-the-season contender made it Three-1 to the Gunners.
The Welshman then slipped via for Aubameyang to finish the win as the sport ticked into damage time.
However Keown thinks there’s a method Arsenal will be capable to preserve maintain of the previous Cardiff midfielder.
He added: “I can see him staying if they’re profitable and win one thing huge.”
Fellow BT Sport pundit Michael Owen believes Arsenal are vulnerable to setting a harmful precedent with their dealing with of earlier contract negotiations.
In January, each Alexis Sanchez and Ozil had simply six months left on their offers.
The Gunners misplaced Sanchez for Manchester United in a swap with Henrikh Mkhitaryan whereas Ozil was gifted a glowing £350,000-a-week contract on a silver platter.
However this now offers gamers extra energy when negotiating new offers for themselves.
And Ramsey could possibly exploit this within the coming months as his present deal nears its finish.
Owen stated: “They’ve made just a few errors. Sanchez was one then Ozil obtained possibly 20, 30, 40 per cent greater than it will have been.
“Now everybody will evaluate themselves to Ozil.”
Ozil missed Sunday’s win because of again spasms as Ramsey’s flick was sandwiched between wonderful doubles from Alexandre Lacazette and Aubameyang.
Arsenal moved forward of Tottenham on aim distinction and head into the worldwide break within the high 4.
