Arsenal fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are looking up with some serious interest as Metro seem to think that they could well be about to make a swoop for Sergio Ramos.
The Real Madrid defender has rejected a new deal with the La Liga giants due to the terms of the contract and it is becoming increasingly clear that Ramos is chasing a wage packet Real Madrid are unprepared to pay.
That, combined with his rant about the standards of officiating in Spain makes us think that he could well be considering a dramatic move to the Premier League in order to not only get one final huge contract but to also experience a different way of life.
As one of our punters quips, the fact that Mesut Ozil and Ramos are rather close could well make the difference in where the defender eventually decides to move to and we think Arsenal could well land him if the contract offer is right.
Arsenal fans. You may get your hands on Villarreal’s Gabriel Paulista this January but would the capture of Ramos really put you amongst the Premier League’s elite in terms of a realistic title challenge? Let us know your thoughts below.
