Aaron Ramsey has revealed who he would like to see join Arsenal this summer as he encouraged Arsene Wenger to bid for Celtic's dynamic midfielder Victor Wanyama.
The 21 year old has been linked with a move to numerous Premier League clubs after an impressive season with Celtic as he helped the club reach the last 16 of the Champions League with a string of powerful displays in the heart of midfield.
Wanyama scored against Barcelona as Celtic recorded a memorable win over Tito Vilanova's side and helped the club cruise to retaining the Scottish Premier League title.
His performances are believed to have caught the eye of several clubs in England, with Arsenal being repeatedly linked with the Kenyan.
Gunners midfielder Ramsey has clearly been impressed with the performances of Wanyama and hopes that Wenger would be interested in bringing the powerful youngster to the Emirates for next season.
"Of course, I don't have a say on who joins us at the Emirates, but if Arsenal get to sign Victor Wanyama, I will be the first to welcome him," Ramsey told the Express.
"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.
"He is 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."
Wanyama earned a reputation as a box-to-box midfielder last season as he managed to score nine goals in his 49 appearances for Celtic.
With Arsenal failing to find a suitable replacement for Alex Song last summer and with Abou Diaby suffering from multiple injury lay-offs, there is a belief that a powerful midfielder would be a priority for Wenger.
The Arsenal boss is said to have plenty of funds for transfers this summer as he attempts to build a side capable of challenging for major honours, rather than simply scraping into the top four.
