Real Madrid have made contact with Aaron Ramsey as they look to add the Arsenal midfielder to their squad when the transfer window reopens in January.

Ramsey will be out of contract at the Emirates come end of season, and the Gunners do not plan on offering the Welsh midfielder a contract extension.

Madrid, according to reports by the Mirror, are believed to have joined a list of potential suitors for Ramsey, including Juventus and Bayern Munich.

The former Cardiff City youngster is free to sign a pre-contract agreement with a club outside the Premier League in January, and the Los Blancos will be able to offer him more in terms of salary.

Another factor expected to give Madrid an advantage in the race for Ramsey’s signature is the option of playing with international teammate Gareth Bale.

The pair were instrumental as Wales reached the semi-finals of the UEFA European Championships in France in 2016, and are good friends off the pitch.

Ramsey joined Arsenal as a 17-year-old back in 2008, and has featured in 347 games for the club in all competitions.

He also has 60 goals to his name, with his most prolific season coming in 2013/2014 campaign where he found the back of the net 16 times.
