Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has been continually linked with a move away from the club for the past few months with Barcelona reportedly ready to break the bank to land the Wales international.
The fee rumoured to be in the region of $80 million would hand Wenger a handsome war chest with the cash injection being used to fund a possible 3 or 4 new signings. However Arsenal fans need not worry just yet as Barcelona are unable to complete any signings before January 1, 2016 due a Fifa embargo after breaching rules on the transfer of under-18 players between 2009 and 2013. The upshot. If a deal was to done then realistically this would happen in 12 months’ time. With Theo Walcott expected to sign a new long-term deal and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain seemingly over his recent injuries a full strength Arsenal side are capable of causing problems for any team within the BPL - the problem though is keeping these players fit!

Aaron Ramsey overcame a knock picked up against Hull City to start against Swansea City on Monday in a 1-0 Arsenal loss.

Injuries usually prevent Arsene Wenger from fielding the same line-up for too many matches in a row but he was able to field the same line-up for the fifth consecutive match against Swansea. Aaron Ramsey was the biggest risk not to make it back with a significant bruise picked up from a hard tackle against Hull City. He overcame the knock but his presence couldn't help Arsenal score as Swansea "parked the bus" and ground out a surprising win at the Emirates.

Aaron Ramsey has been listed as 50/50 by Arsene Wenger going into Monday's clash with Swansea due to swelling in his leg from a hard tackle in last weekend's match.

With Jack Wilshere coming back to full fitness, it seems likely that Arsene Wenger will play it safe with his Welsh midfielder. Wilshere needs the time on the pitch, Ramsey needs to avoid yet another injury, and Arsenal's match with the Swans isn't THAT critical to how the season finishes up. The Gunners would certainly like to finish second but the difference between second and third isn't significant for anything other than psychological purposes with both spots guaranteeing passage into the group stages of the Champions League for next season.

Aaron Ramsey provided an assist to Alexis Sanchez and then took matters into his own hands and scored Arsenal's second which turned out to be the winner in the 3-1 away result.

It wasn't a vintage Aaron Ramsey performance per se but it was certainly a productive one as the Welshman contributed a goal and an assist to the 3-1 win. The reason to say that it wasn't a vintage performance was that those two contributions were about the only evidence that Ramsey played and he went off after 68 minutes. If the deflection that led to Ramsey's goal goes in a different direction then his week looks entirely different.

Aaron Ramsey got a match-winning goal for Arsenal against Burnley win Week 32 but his overall game still isn't back to it's best.

Fantasy managers who picked Ramsey won't argue with the results but it smacked of good fortune rather than a wise choice. Ramsey's only shot on target came from a scramble in front of the net. He scored it and it turned out to be the match-winner so his fantasy numbers looked good. What he didn't do was contribute much else (one blocked shot, one corner won, one pass intercepted). When he was at his best last season he was contributing all over the park and the goals just put him over the top. Right now he seems to be dependent on goals and assists to make him a valuable fantasy commodity. That's not unusual for a midfielder but his price in most formats is probably too high to justify that situation.

Aaron Ramsey scored from a scramble in front of Tom Heaton's net for the only goal of the day as Arsenal won for the eighth consecutive match.

It was a workmanlike 1-0 victory that saw Arsenal deal with but not necessarily conquer steady pressure from Burnley. The Gunners scored in the 12th minute and then played a calm, almost Chelsea-under-Mourinho-like match to come away from Turf Moor with all three points. The win sees the Gunners pull within four points of Chelsea at the top with the leaders having two matches in hand.

Aaron Ramsey finally reminded us that he can be a very good player on his day with a goal, an assist and a great all-around match in Arsenal's 3-0 win over West Ham.

Goals and assists come and go but Arsenal supporters and fantasy managers alike have good reason to be hopeful on Ramsey after his Week 29 performance. In addition to the goal and the assist, the Welsh midfielder had three interceptions, three tackles won and a corner won. It's the sort of all-around performance that Ramsey put on regularly early last season before injuries derailed the second half of last season and the first half of this one. The big question now facing Ramsey is how much opportunity he will get to show his improved form with Santi Cazorla, Arsenal's best player for a number of months running, having found a home in Ramsey's preferred position.

Aaron Ramsey will likely have trained fully on today by the time this is posted but despite the positive progress he is highly unlikely to be ready for Arsenal's match with Everton on Sunday.

Ramsey is close to being recovered from the latest recurrence of his hamstring issue but Week 27 will come too soon for him to feature and it is highly likely that the same will be true of Week 28 in mid-week. Santi Cazorla is currently manning the deeper-lying midfield distributor role beside Francis Coquelin. This alignment allows Cazorla, Ozil, Sanchez, and Walcott/Welbeck to feature in the same line-up around Olivier Giroud. Ramsey faces an uphill battle to regain his spot once he does return to health.

Aaron Ramsey is just about half way through what is projected to be a three week rehabilitation from recurrence of his hamstring issue against Leicester City.

Arsenal are flush with midfield options right now so Aaron Ramsey, at least the Aaron Ramsey we've seen for most of this season, won't be missed a great deal over the next ten days or so. The concern is that Ramsey has generally taken a while to round back into top form after an injury so even if he returns to the pitch in early March it might be until April that he hits his stride. This, combined with Arsenal's current depth in quality players, will present Arsene Wenger with quite an issue when Ramsey does return. Let him play his way back into form but suffer through some more mediocre performances while he does. Or hold him out in favor of players better able to contribute that day.

Arsenal edged out Leicester at the Emirates on Tuesday but the win came at a cost with Aaron Ramsey and Alexis Sanchez both picking up injuries which will be assessed over the next 24/48 hours.

Ramsey presents as the biggest concern having been brought on late into the game - the midfielder pulled up sharply within 10 minutes of his introduction after suffering what is believed to be a recurrence of his hamstring tear and Gunners boss Wenger admitted "it didn't look good - when a guy stops straight away and sits down, that's not good." However the news on Sanchez was a little better as the Chilean he could’ve continued after taking a knock to the knee in a challenge with Matthew Upson although the correct call was probably made having just returned himself from a minor hamstring problem – with 10 days until GW26 I fully expect Arsenals’ leading scorer to be back amongst the ranks.

The injury news is mostly positive for Arsenal for a change with news that Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil and Olivier Giroud are all available to face Stoke City.

The Welsh midfielder has shown flashes of his exceptional form from the first half of last season when he has been healthy this season but those bouts of health have been few and far between. With Arsenal needing a strong second half to fend off Spurs, Liverpool and Southampton for a Champions League spot, Arsene Wenger will be hoping that he can get five months of health and productivity from Ramsey starting with Week 21. There is a solid chance that Ramsey starts the match against the Potters on the bench so beware of committing to him in leagues where you can't make changes after line-ups are announced.
Jan 9 - 2:47 PM

Aaron Ramsey won't be ready for the Boxing Day match with QPR but he may be ready as soon as the Week 19 match with West Ham or the New Year's Day match with West Ham.

Arsenal would certainly like to have their player of the first half of last season back as soon as possible. With upcoming matches in Week 19 and 20 against teams ahead of them in the table - West Ham and Southampton - the Welsh midfield's return can't come soon enough.

Aaron Ramsey is out until the New Year after injuring his hamstring against Galatasaray.

What a massive blow this is for Arsene Wenger as the Gunners' injury crisis deepens. Ramsey had been showing signs of his very best form after hitting three goals in his last three games and was a top fantasy pick for the clash with Newcastle, but the Welshman's tight hamstring turned out to be a worse than first thought. Early reports suggest the midfielder will be out for up to a month, meaning he would miss the Arsenal's busy festive schedule. Ramsey joins Laurent Koscielny and Nacho Monreal on the sidelines, while Calum Chambers is suspended for Week 16.

Aaron Ramsey's season hasn't gone to plan after last season's massive breakout but he is showing signs of getting back on track.

First it was the assist to clinch the Southampton match on December 3rd. Then it was Arsenal's second goal in the loss at Stoke City over the weekend. Tuesday's Champions League win over Galatasaray brought two goals in the one half that the Welshman played. Three matches isn't enough to say that he's back to being one of the best midfielders in the league as he was for the first half of last season but it certainly gives Arsenal supporters and fantasy managers hope that he might be.

Arsenal hammered an abject Galatasaray side 4-1 in their final Champions League group game.

Arsenal could not claim top spot in Group D as Borussia Dortmund avoided defeat, but this was a morale boosting victory. Forgotten man Lukas Podolski powered an opener and Aaron Ramsey slotted a second before adding a stunning left-footed 35-yard volley as the Gunners went 3-0 up inside 30 minutes. Podolski was impressive throughout and ended the night by netting with a powerful run and rolled finish to complete a 4-1 rout, after Wesley Sneider has scored a fine consolation. Ramsey is clearly back to full sharpness and should be high on your fantasy priorities for this weekend and beyond.
