In an interview in Kenya to promote their tourism trade, Ramsey was asked about the prospect of the 21-year-old joining the Gunners.
He said: “Of course, I don’t have a say on who joins us but if Arsenal get to sign Victor, I will be the first to welcome him.
“I have watched him play for Celtic.
“I watched him score against Barcelona and I think he is a great player, whether he will join us is for other people to decide.
“His name has been all over the British media. He’s one player I have read many clubs in England are chasing — and I have no doubt he has great talent if top clubs in England are interested in him.
“Before I saw him play, all I knew of Kenya was its wildlife, athletics and the Rugby Sevens squad!”
