In the past, the Blues have shown that they have no issues with trying to sign Arsenal’s long-serving players, with Ashley Cole and Olivier Giroud both moving to Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea also failed with an approach for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain last summer, but it appears that the West Londoners could be ready to make contact with the Gunners ahead of next season.

According to The Mirror, Chelsea are monitoring Ramsey’s situation at the Emirates Stadium, with the Welshman having just over a year remaining on his contract.

Arsenal will likely move to improve Ramsey’s terms, but the 27-year-old will also have a number of options available to him during the summer and it has been claimed that one of them will be Chelsea.

During the current campaign, Ramsey has contributed seven goals in 23 outings in all competitions.
