Aaron Ramsey is attracting transfer interest from Bayern Munich as Pep Guardiola prepares to rival Barcelona for the Arsenal midfielder's signature this summer.
The Daily Star on Sunday reports how the Wales international has been targeted by a number of Europe's most illustrious clubs, following a scintillating season in north London.
Ramsey was the hero as Arsenal successfully ended their nine-year trophy drought by claiming the FA Cup after a dramatic 3-2 extra-time victory over Hull City at Wembley on Saturday.
The 23-year-old netted the all-important match winner to cap a brilliant season in Arsene Wenger's side, with a return of 16 goals in 34 games in all competitions for the Gunners in 2013/14.
Guardiola first tried to sign Ramsey during his time as Barcelona manager, and has continued to monitor his development at Arsenal since succeeding Jupp Heynckes at the Allianz Arena last summer.
Camp Nou representatives are also believed to have watched the Arsenal star on six different occasions last season, and could lodge a bid of their own for the player - identified as a possible replacement for Xavi Hernandez at Barca.
However, despite recent speculation linking Ramsey with a move away from the Emirates Stadium, he's expected to remain in north London as a show of loyalty when the club stood by him following the double leg fracture he suffered in 2010.
It's been a long road to recovery for the former Cardiff City star, but having rediscovered his best form Arsenal are now reaping the rewards after Wenger kept faith in the player he signed for £4.8 million in 2008.
