When Arsenal face Chelsea in the Europa League final, Aaron Ramsey won’t be lining up for the Gunners having been ruled out by injury.
The 58-cap Welshman has delivered trophy-winning moments in his time with the Gunners, including a headed winner against the Blues in the 2017 FA Cup final.
Unai Emery’s men will have to line up without the midfielder, who’s set to join Juventus after agreeing a move to the Old Lady once his contract at Arsenal has expired, meaning he will leave the club on a free transfer in July.
Before Arsenal fans can worry about transfer plans of their own, they need to contest perhaps the club’s biggest game of the last ten years – an opportunity to win European silverware and reach Champions League football, which reports state will have a huge bearing on how Arsenal can perform in the transfer market.
Ramsey was key to Arsenal’s late season flourish, and his injury coincided with a huge collapse in results. Despite being unable to play, he’s flown out to Baku and sent his club a message to wish them good luck before the game, and of course fans were quick to respond to the departing midfielder…
He may not be able to play tonight, but @AaronRamsey is flying into Baku ahead of tonight's final to support the lads
Here's Aaron's video message to the squad ahead of the final…
