Unai Emery hints at Ramsey's surprise replacement

Unai Emery might not have to look elsewhere for Aaron Ramsey after all, with his comments suggesting he might promote young academy players to take up his role. 

Ramsey will leave the club at the end of the current campaign, after deciding not to sign a new contract at the club, after the expiry of his terms. 

The Welsh chose to move abroad, and will be turning out for Juventus in the Serie A,  after agreeing on terms in January 2019,

And now Emery believes he has good players with the team to replace the dependable midfielder, and will not be necessary to fund big-money transfers. 

"We need to use young players like Ramsey who played here when he was young. Every player can take chances and use these chances to improve with us," Emery said after a 3-1 win over Burnley on Sunday.

"Willock and Nketiah played the 90 minutes, they used this time to help us with a good match. It’s our responsibility to give them chances but find the best performance as a team," he added. 

Arsenal ended their Premier League campaign on a winning note, drubbing Burnley 3-1 away, but will play one more match; against Chelsea in the Europa League on May 29.

Ramsey will miss the match due to an injury.
