Former Liverpool midfielder Jamie Redknapp has berated North London giants Arsenal for letting midfielder Aaron Ramsey run down his contract at the club.
Ramsey is expected to leave Arsenal as a free agent upon the expiration of his contract with the club.
His contract runs out at the end of the season and recent reports suggest that his next destination is the Juventus Stadium in Italy.
In his column for the Daily Mail, Jamie Redknapp questioned why Arsenal would let an important player like Ramsey leave the club before bemoaning the inability to recoup any transfer fee for his exit.
The footballer turned pundit further said that Arsenal will have to spend £40m at least if they want to get a replacement for Aaron Ramsey in the summer.
Jamie Redknapp was speaking on the back of a very good performance from Ramsey in the London Derby clash with Chelsea on Saturday night in what was a Premier League game.
Aaron Ramsey produced a very good display to help the Gunners to a 2-0 victory over Chelsea courtesy goals from Alexandre Lacazette and Laurent Koscielny.
The two goals came in the first half as the Gunners closed in on Chelsea by moving to within three points on the league table.
