Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey is one of the most sought-after players on the European football scene with several clubs keen on a move for him.
Ramsey, 27, is said to be on his way out of the Emirates Stadium with just six months remaining on his Arsenal contract.
Latest reports emanating from England claim that Champions League holders Real Madrid have joined other European heavyweights in the race to sign Welshman Ramsey.
The Daily Mirror say that European champions Real Madrid will try to sign him on a free transfer in the New Year.
The Welsh international player can start negotiations with foreign clubs such as Real Madrid when he has six months left on his contract.
Manchester United have repeatedly been linked with a transfer for him as manager Jose Mourinho attempts to boost his ailing squad ahead of next season.
Other European heavyweights like Italian Serie A champions Juventus, AC Milan, Liverpool, Chelsea, AS Roma and Bayern Munich are also in the running to sign him.
Aaron Ramsey is the longest-serving player at Arsenal with over a decade of football under his belt in the colours of the Gunners.
He joined the club as a teenager in 2008 from Cardiff City.
