Chelsea’s transfer windows have not always gone to plan under manager Antonio Conte, and with the summer approaching, the rumour mill is churning more frequently.
According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has emerged as a potential transfer target for the Blues when the window reopens.
The publication claims that the Wales international is yet to open talks with the Gunners over a new contract.
As it stands, the midfielder will become a free agent at the end of the 2018-19 season, and it is believed that the player wants an increase in his £110,000-a-week wage packet.
Chelsea have already done business with their London rivals in this calendar year by recruiting Olivier Giroud in January, and for the majority of the supporters it was a positive move.
It seems unlikely that the Gunners would sanction a move for Ramsey to Chelsea this summer so soon after boosting a direct rival.
This season, the 27-year-old has made 23 appearances in all competitions, scoring seven goals and creating eight assists in the process.
Chelsea fans have been reacting to the transfer rumour on Twitter, and the majority are not happy.
This is crazy
So we picking Arsenal's crumbs now?
Will he give us the depth to challenge against City next season?

Is Chelsea really serious ? Ramsey for what ? Can't RLC play the type of game that Ramsey plays? Chelsea is not serious I think, how old is Ramsey compared to RLC, playing with power, pace and everything ?
