Arsenal midfield linchpin Aaron Ramsey is set to meet a specialist over a persistent thigh problem this week and could need surgery to correct an injury which blighted a terrific campaign during the close season, according to the Daily Mail.

Ramsey missed more than three months after suffering a grade two thigh strain against West Ham United on Boxing Day, with repeated attempts at a comeback proving false dawns as the Welsh star was sidelined until early April.

The 23-year-old bounced back to end a fantastic season in style with the winning goal in the FA Cup final against Hull City, but Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is desperate to avoid a repeat of Ramsey's injury woe and will act on the advice of a thigh specialist, even if that means he is forced to start next season without a key man.

Wenger needs Ramsey fit when it really matters next season if Arsenal to sustain a title challenge, as demonstrated by the playmaker's decisive impact in the FA Cup final.

The Gunners rewarded Ramsey for his fine start to the season with a new contract, once again showing Wenger's faith in a player he signed back in 2008 from Cardiff City, beating Manchester United and Everton to that deal.

Arsenal fans will now wait with baited breath for news of Ramsey's consultation over a nagging problem that refuses to go away, with the Gunners faithful used to bad news over precautionary surgery in the not too distant past.
