There’s little doubt that Aaron Ramsey has been one of the hottest players in the world this season.

The Arsenal midfielder has enjoyed great success in an increased role in The Gunners’ midfield, and he’s finally living up to his potential as a solid playmaker. He has even shown a scoring side that was unknown, netting 13 goals so far this year.

He could be packing his bags soon, though, as several sources are indicating the Spanish giants Barcelona have the Wales international as their priority to strengthen their midfield.

The 22-year-old has been masterful for the current Premier League leaders this season, and his displays haven’t gone unnoticed. Barcelona would be keen to make a push, although it doesn’t seem likely that Arsenal would look to part ways with one of their cornerstones for the future.

Making a move for Ramsey makes a lot of sense for Barcelona. The Welshman is a great passer, he’s adept to play for a winning team and he is a skillful player that fits the mold of what Los Blaugranas currently have on their team. With Xavi and Iniesta aging quickly and no youngsters in the pipeline that could replace them, Ramsey would add some depth and could even be the playmaker of the future for the Camp Nou outfit.

It remains to be seen whether Los Culés actually make a serious bid and if Arsenal is willing to negotiate since these are all rumors. But if this move ends up happening, Barcelona would end up getting a gem to replace their midfield stars for the foreseeable future.
