Former Premier League midfielder Jack Collison has berated North London giants Arsenal for a costly transfer mistake.
The ex-West Ham United player slammed the Gunners for letting Aaron Ramsey leave the club.
Aaron Ramsey is all but a Juventus player after he signed a pre-contract agreement with the Old Lady having already undergone his medical ahead of a free transfer move this summer.
It was revealed that an official announcement is expected next month.
Ramsey is leaving Arsenal after senior club officials withdrew their offer of a new contract in September.
The Welshman is the longest serving player in the Arsenal squad with over a decade at the Emirates Stadium.
While speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live via the Daily Express, footballer turned pundit Jack Collison questioned why Arsenal will let a quality player like Ramsey leave the club before narrating how the huge salary handed to star player Mesut Ozil has come back to haunt the club in a big way.
2014 World Cup winner Ozil put pen to paper on a three-year contract worth £350,000 on a weekly basis last February to make him the highest paid earner in the history of the club.
Ramsey asked for a big salary increment as a result and that led to the withdrawal of the Gunners contract offer with the club citing footballing and financial reasons for the decision.
