Sky Sports presenter Jeff Stelling pointed out today that it has been suggested that Barcelona might be keeping an eye on Aaron Ramsey.
'Xavi and Iniesta are getting on', Merson continued, 'Ramsey's got to be the 2nd best player in the world at the minute - behind Messi. He's got everything. He's the man'.
Matt Le Tissier suggested that the Arsenal midfielder was the best player in the Premier League this season to date, ahead even of Liverpool's Luis Suarez. Phil Thompson pointed out that it was impossible to pigeon-hole Ramsey, as he can play anywhere in midfield.
Ramsey has scored 10 goals from 18 appearances for Arsenal this season, and a player who manager Arsene Wenger was said to have been warned not to play at the Emirates last season because of the flak Ramsey would get from fans, is now the supporters top man.
The Wales international has just been voted Arsenal's Player of the Month for the fifth time in succession.
Wenger said a few days back that he wouldn't sell Ramsey for £50m. Wenger pointed out: 'He keeps surprising me. He has matured as a player and a person as well'.
