Arsenal reportedly prepare to offload a key midfielder as we round up the latest rumours on Friday, May 18.
The Gunners are ready to sell Aaron Ramsey unless the Wales international agrees a new contract this summer, according to reports in the Sun.
The 27-year-old is currently contracted to the north London club until the end of June 2019.
Elsewhere, the Gunners are believed to be closing on the appointment of Mikel Arteta, with Man City expecting the former Arsenal midfielder to leave the Etihad, says the Daily Telegraph.
And City head coach Pep Guardiola has given his compatriot the green light to leave the Premier League champions to take over as Arsenal boss, according to Sport.
Meanwhile, Xabi Alonso could make a return to the Premier League as part of Arsenal's backroom staff if Arteta becomes their next manager, reports the Daily Express.
The Spaniard played for Liverpool between 2004 and 2009.
