In the week building up to the Gunners FA Cup final with Aston Villa at Wembley this Saturday, the Welsh maestro has been linked with a sensational, megabucks move to the Camp Nou after supposedly being scouted by the Catalan club more than ten times, meanwhile Wales boss Chris Coleman said he’d be an ideal replacement for Xavi.
However, when asked of the supposed contact himself, Ramsey, who last season was tied down on a bumper, five-year-deal to keep him at the Emirates until at least 2019, played down the idea he could be set to quit Arsenal.
“No, not at this time. I’m focusing on the FA Cup so that’s what appeals to me at this moment in time,” Ramsey said, according to the Daily Star.
“That sort of news doesn’t affect me or even enter my mind.”
It hasn’t been the season Ramsey would have hoped after such a devastating campaign in 2013/14, particularly due to his problems staying fit with a number of injuries particularly to his hamstrings.
However, in the last few weeks the former Cardiff City man has looked back to this best and looks set to make an impact in this year’s FA Cup final that he will be hoping is on par with his impact in Arsenal’s 3-2 triumph over Hull last year in which he bagged the winner.
