Aaron Ramsey will leave Arsenal next summer (Picture: Rex Features)Ryan Giggs insists Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey can play for ‘anyone in Europe’.
The Wales international is searching for a new club after Arsenal informed him he would not be offered a new contract.
Ramsey had hoped to sign a contract extension with his current deal set to expire at the end of the season.
But Arsenal decided to abandon talks and have told Ramsey he will leave the club on a free next summer.
Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool have all been linked with a move for the 27-year-old and Giggs says he ‘won’t be short of offers’.
‘I’ve been asked a lot about Aaron Ramsey leaving Arsenal next summer,’ Giggs told Sky Sports.
‘And all I can say is that when he comes to camp with us he’s always ready, he’s a great professional and this contract situation has never affected him so far.

‘Wherever that may be is obviously out of my hands but I just want him playing.
‘He won’t be short of offers as he’s a talented player. He’s one of those players that, if he plays a full season, will get 10-15 goals from midfield and that’s a very attractive player to have in any side.
‘He’s friends with Gareth Bale so obviously he’ll be able to tell him what it’s like to play abroad and Aaron’s certainly got the talent to play anywhere in Europe but that will totally be his decision.
‘As long as he’s playing regular football, that’s all I really care about.’
Ramsey has spent over a decade at Arsenal, helping the club win three FA Cup titles since being signed by Arsene Wenger from Cardiff City.
Former Arsenal and England defender Martin Keown says he is ‘astonished’ that the Welshman has been told he will leave.
He told the Daily Mail: ‘From the club’s point of view, they have made a decision and are not letting themselves be dictated to by a player.
‘If they wanted to keep him, they surely would have left the door open and tried to find a solution financially.
‘I expect Ramsey to continue to be 100 per cent committed to the cause. He is a fantastic professional who will give everything to the football club.
‘But I do find it staggering that the contract offer has been removed. When you think about how much it will cost to replace a player like Ramsey, it is astonishing that he will be allowed to leave.
‘The club must have already identified targets who they feel represent better value for money.’
