Chelsea transfer news: Blues favourites to sign Aaron Ramsey after latest development
It’s claimed that the Blues are readying a £30m move for the Wales international, 27.
Arsenal ace Ramsey is in the final year of his contract at the Emirates – and talks over a new deal are ongoing.
And the bookies have slashed the odds on Chelsea signing Ramsey this summer, with the Blues now 4/1 to sign the Arsenal midfielder.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Arsenal have had a solid summer up to this point, but that could all change with plenty backing Chelsea to make a sensational move for Ramsey.”
Ladbrokes slashed the odds from 16/1 to 4/1 for Ramsey to quit the Emirates for Stamford Bridge.
Liverpool are next in line to sign Ramsey, priced at 8/1, while Everton are the outsiders at 16/1 to sign the Wales star this summer.
Arsenal manager Unai Emery is said to be confident of persuading Ramsey to commit his long-term future to the Gunners.
Should the attacking midfielder decide against signing a new contract, he could leave the Emirates for free next summer.
New Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is keen to spend after replacing Antonio Conte in west London.
However, the Blues have only completed two deals this summer, with Jorginho and Rob Green heading to Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea are also keen on Juventus duo Gonzalo Higuain and Daniele Rugani as Sarri looks to raid Serie A.
The Blues are fully focused on domestic competitions this season after failing to qualify for the Champions League last time out.
