Clubs across world chasing Arsenal contract rebel Ramsey

Clubs across the world are chasing a deal for Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey.

The Mirror says Chinese Super League clubs are keen on the 27-year-old midfielder, who is in the final year of his contract.

That comes on top of interest from Chelsea and Manchester United, with Lazio and Barcelona also linked with the Arsenal star.

But Gunners cannot afford to lose one of their prize midfield assets and are desperate to tie him down.

The Londoners gave German international Mesut Ozil a new deal worth £350,000 a week in January and the Welsh star also wants a big increase.

The foreign interest has only strengthened his bargaining position.

But Arsenal's wage bill is an issue as they try to balance the books to make sure they can pay Ramsey top dollar to keep him.
