Aaron Ramsey moved to Arsenal in 2008 after signing from Cardiff City. And, he went on to make his competitive debut for Arsenal in the Champions League third qualifying round and then made his Premier League debut against Blackburn Rovers on September the 13th 2008.
However, he was never really able to nail down a permanent place in the side as he ended up spending time out on loan at Nottingham Forest and Cardiff City, which helped him develop massively.
The Welshman really started to come on leaps and bounds during the 2012-13 season as he secured a player of the month award and put in a number of world-class performances.
In the 2013-14 season, Aaron Ramsey managed to secure Arsenal’s Player of the Month award for four consecutive months between August and November 2013, and later decided to sign a new long-term deal at the club on the 18th of March 2014. He then went on to be named the Gunners’ Player of the Season.
It comes as no surprise that fans were so excited to see him sign a new deal as he’s helped the Gunners secure a number of trophies over the years. And, as it stands he has scored 61 goals in an Arsenal shirt. No central midfielder in the club’s history has scored more. He has also produced 57 assists up until this point.
He will always be remembered for all of his excellence at the Emirates and he could still play a huge part in the remainder of the current campaign, but supporters recently received news which will be sure to disappoint as he’s signed a pre-contract agreement with Juventus. Indeed, he was described as an Arsenal icon by the club’s official Twitter account, making his imminent departure a sad one.
