Arsenal head-coach Unai Emery dropped hint that they may not look for a direct replacement of Aaron Ramsey in the transfer market for the Walse international star this summer and will instead use their academy players to fill the gap that will be left after his departure.
Ramsey has played his final game for the North London club ahead of his move to Sere A champions Juventus this summer after spending eleven years at the North London club.
Unai Emery is not expected to be handed a significant transfer budget in the summer and the Gunners head-coach insisted he is keen for the likes of Eddie Nketiah and Joe Willock to step up.
‘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 against Burnley.
‘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.
‘Young players need opportunities to be with us in training.’
The Gunners ended their 2018/19 Premier League season on a high by securing a victory at Burnley, with Aubameyang scoring a brace that helped him to win the Golden Boot, alongside Liverpool attacking pair Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.
Willock impressed the Gunners supporters in attack, while Nketiah has found back of the net for the Gunners’ third as Emery’s side finished fifth in the English top-tier.
The North London club have one more game this campaign against Chelsea in the Europa League final and winning it could help them to secure Champions League football next season.
