Ramsey ‘very flattered’ by Barca links

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey admits speculation linking him with Barcelona “is very flattering” after revealing his desire to play in Spain one day.

The Wales international was reportedly a €50m target for La Blaugrana last season but, despite his happiness at his name being attached to “one of the best clubs in the world”, he has no plans of leaving the Gunners just yet.

“Obviously it’s very flattering,” he told the Guardian.

“They did the treble last year and it’s just really nice to be linked with one of the best clubs in the world.

“One day I would like to go over to Spain to play just to see what it’s like and to experience that.

“But at the moment I’m with Arsenal and I feel like this Arsenal team can go and be successful and challenge for things.”
