Aaron Ramsey did his chances of sealing a big-money move away from Arsenal no harm on New Year's Day as he scored another important goal against Fulham.

When Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's shot hit the post and deflected to the Welshman, he made no mistake by firing into the top-right corner to make it 3-1.

Ramsey is currently playing for his future away from the Emirates Stadium amid interest from some of Europe's biggest clubs.

Real Madrid, Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich and Inter Milan have all reportedly made contact with the 28-year-old, who will become a free agent in the summer.

His preferred destination is said to be Juventus and earlier this week the club's sporting director, Fabio Paratici, confirmed their interest.

"Ramsey is a very good player who has been playing at a high level for many years and who plays for an important club. For now, that's it," Paratici said, per Sky Sports.

"He is a player whose contract is going to end and we always pay great attention to the situations offered by the transfer market because it is our duty, so we also pay attention to Ramsey."

Arsenal fans made it abundantly clear to manager Unai Emery that they don't want to lose Ramsey during the Fulham win by chanting: "Sign him up!"

And now they've taken to social media after hearing that Juventus could include Sami Khedira as part of any deal in January, per the Guardian.

Khedira is a World Cup winner with Germany and has won multiple trophies with Real Madrid and Juve, but at 31 years old he's not exactly the ideal replacement for Ramsey.

Which is why Arsenal fans are divided over whether it would be a good move for them or not. Here's how they've been reacting.

FOR

AGAINST

There are arguments to be made for and against Arsenal swapping Ramsey for Khedira, but right now their biggest problem is in defence and that's what they must focus on.

Instead of bringing in Khedira, Emery should look to sign someone like Medhi Benatia, who is also 31 years old but still a top-class defender with plenty of experience at the top.

Benatia is Juventus' third-choice centre-back behind Georgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci, too, so there's a chance he would be open to a move.
