ARSENAL can replace Juventus-bound Aaron Ramsey for just £12million with Eibar midfielder Joan Jordan.
With Ramsey set to end his 11-year Emirates stay in the summer joining Serie A champions Juve on a free – Gunners boss Unai Emery is scouring for a replacement.
Gunners chiefs have been monitoring 24-year-old Jordan and according to AS Arsenal can sign the Spaniard if they match his £12m release clause.
The Gunners face competition from Valencia and Villiareal though it is believed the La Liga pair are not willing to meet Jordan’s release clause.
Jordan’s contract expires at the end of next season and the possibility of acquiring him on a free is enough to put off potential bidders.
Eibar are willing to cash in on the Catalonia international to avoid losing him on a pre-contract in January.
While they also state that Jose Luis Mendilibar's club will sit down with Arsenal to hold talks over his possible departure.
It is expected to be a busy summer at the Emirates – with a number of players set to be offloaded to make room for new recruits.
Mohamed Elneny has been linked with a move to Besiktas, while Mesut Ozil and Henrikh Mkhitaryan could also be sold to free up the wage bill.
Cagliari midfielder Nicolo Barella and Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney are being tracked by the North Londoners, as well as Paris Saint-Germain winger Christopher Nkunku.
