Welsh side keen on Emirates Stadium youngster.
Cardiff City are preparing an ambitious move to re-sign Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey according to the Daily Mirror.
The 22 year old Welsh international left Cardiff City in a £4.8m deal in 2008 and the Bluebirds would have to fork out a bigger fee to bring him back to his former club but are apparently ready to offer as much as £60k a week to help lure Ramsey into a return.
It’s a move that may just tempt Ramsey, who is still very much a squad player who is by no means guaranteed a first team start in Arsene Wenger’s plans.
The talented midfielder has started 17 of Arsenal’s 34 Premier League matches thus far this term and would know that first team football would be virtually guaranteed at Cardiff City and may be sufficiently impressed by the direction the club is heading in under owner Vincent Tan.
Having secured promotion to the top tier Tan will be more than aware of just how important it is to improve his squad ahead the massive step to the Premier League and a move to bring in Ramsey will be an excellent statement of intent.
Ramsey has to battle with the likes of Mikel Arteta, Jack Wilshere, Santi Cazorla and Tomas Rosicky, among others, for a place in the Gunners side and one wonders if the opportunity to return to Wales will tempt the former national team captain, even though he has only recently signed a new long term contract.
Cardiff City are also said to be keen on QPR forward Jamie Mackie, who will be an easier target to secure.
