Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is growing increasingly confident that his side will land Real Madrid star Sergio Ramos in 2015, according to the Express.
The Gunners, who have struggled in the defensive department throughout the season so far, have been linked with the Madrid man for some time.
And now it appears that the Arsenal chief believes Ramos will sign for the club if he rejects a new deal with the Spanish giants.
Despite it being suggested that Ramos will eventually commit his long term future with Carlo Ancelotti's side, the same report has claimed that he's not happy with the current offer that has been put on the table from the club.
In fact, it has been revealed that the player's agent has already spoken with the Arsenal boss, but it remains to be seen as to whether he will look to move to the Emirates next summer.

There's no doubt about it, the Spaniard would only improve the north London outfit as they go in search of glory under Wenger.
It won't be easy for Arsenal to complete a deal for the player, however, with their Premier League rivals also reportedly interested in the player's signature.
In fact, the report has suggested that the duo of Manchester City and Chelsea are interested in the centre-back, so there could yet be a three way battle for the Madrid man.
At this present time, though, a move to England's elite division looks some way off for Ramos, but it certainly appears that Arsenal, Chelsea and Co. will monitor developments extremely closely over the upcoming months.
