Aaron Ramsey flattered by Barcelona interest

The Wales international has been hotly linked with a move to Camp Nou this summer and admits that such interest has really flattered him

It appears that Arsenal will be braced for a huge transfer offer to let go of their star midfielder whose consistent displays in the Premier League has led to growing interest from Barcelona who see him as a great replacement for legendary Xavi Hernandez.

And Ramsey says that he is really flattered by the club’s interest in him despite not being very open about a possible exit from The Emirates this summer.

“Obviously it’s very flattering,” he told The Guardian. “They [Barcelona] 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.”
