Aaron Ramsey's contract expires in the summer of 2019. After having seen the transfer talks being broken, Ramsey is set to leave on a free transfer unless the North London outfit cashes on him in the winter transfer window. Having made 354 appearances in all competitions for the club, Ramsey is now on the verge of leaving the club.
The 28-year-old Welshman has been a big influence on the team and captains the team in the absence of Laurent Koscielny. Replacing a player of Ramsey's caliber is always tough but Emery has to find a proper replacement in January or at least in the summer.
Here are the four players who would fill the void left by Welshman.
#4 Adrien Rabiot
Adrien Rabiot rose to prominence under Unai Emery. The 23-year-old is a tall midfielder who can dictate the game at his pace and has the capability to read the game. Adrien Rabiot is out of contract at the end of the season and is not likely to sign a new contract with the French champions, Paris Saint Germain.
Having made 198 appearances for the French Side, Rabiot now seeks to ply his trade in another league. With Ramsey most likely to leave the Gunners, there could be a reunion to take place in London. Adrien Rabiot is a player who is capable enough to pull the strings in the heart of midfield. The Frenchman possesses a pass success percentage of 92%.
The French outfit would not like to see Rabiot leave on a free transfer in the summer and would be surely selling him in the winter. The €50m rated midfielder is said to have agreed on personal terms with the Spanish giants, Barcelona, but in order to get more playing time could see himself joining the Gunners instead.
