Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has admitted that he would like to move to the La Liga in the future to play with one of the big clubs amid potential interest from Barcelona to sign the Welshman. The former Cardiff City star praised Barcelona's style of play and believes he will fit in at the Camp Nou as the Gunners are also cut from the same cloth in terms of trying to emulate the style of the Catalan giants.
"Barcelona play football very well and at Arsenal we want to do the same. I've said it before: I would to love to play in La Liga one day, at one of the big clubs," Ramsey said, as quoted by the London Evening Standard.
"I watch the league every week. It suits my style. Maybe I will [move] someday, who knows what will happen in the future?" the Wales midfielder added.
The Wales international, who signed for the Gunners from Cardiff City in 2008, had a stellar 2013/14 campaign, when he was voted the club's player of the year – he scored 16 goals in 34 appearances from midfield – including the winner in the FA Cup final against Hull City. He announced himself to the football world that season and has since been a regular member of the Arsenal midfield albeit failing to reach the same level owing to injury and lack of form.
The current campaign saw him make 40 appearances in all competitions, as Arsenal finished in the second place, and also forged a strong partnership with January signing Mohamed Elneny in the final months of the season. According to the London Evening Standard, Barcelona have made Ramsey one of their primary targets for the summer and are reportedly willing to pay up to £60m ($87.7m) to take the Welshman to the Camp Nou.
Ramsey also praised Barcelona's veteran captain Andreas Iniesta, but a move is unlikely to be on the cards anytime in the near future after Arsenal announced that the midfielder, who previously wore the No 16 shirt has now got his request to move to the No 8 shirt vacated by former club captain Mikel Arteta.
