The most bittersweet of goals
While Arsenal fans were delighted with Aaron Ramsey’s goal against Napoli on Thursday evening, it reminded them of his inevitable departure.
Ramsey’s future has been a huge subject several times throughout this season.
The Welshman has been pivotal for the club during his time at the Emirates but as his contract ran down, the more likely it looked he would leave.
Though, it was then revealed all the way back in October that Arsenal had offered Ramsey a deal thought to be worth £185,000 per week and he was ready to sign the contract.
A few months after, Ramsey made the decision to join Juventus on a free transfer in the summer.
Safe to say that was hard to take for Arsenal fans then, but his form in recent weeks has made the pill even harder to swallow.
Ramsey has been playing like a man possessed and that didn’t change against Napoli on Thursday.
Ramsey caps off beautiful team goal
That is because the midfielder scored his 6th goal of the season.
Arsenal worked the ball beautifully to Alexandre Lacazette, who played the ball inside for Ainsley Maitland-Niles with the youngster putting it on a plate for Ramsey to place the ball into the back of the net.
It was a beautiful move all around but it was Aaron Ramsey’s name on the scoresheet.
Considering he will no longer be an Arsenal player in just a few months time, it was very much a bittersweet goal for Gunners fans to celebrate.
Thankfully, Lucas Torreira’s goal to put Arsenal 2-0 up helped take their mind off it!

What a flowing Arsenal move. Aaron Ramsey is doing his best to make his eventual departure as painful as possible.

Just saw the replay. Özil started the attack and Ramsey finished it off. The very last days of Ramzil

Juventus fans, on the other hand, really enjoyed Ramsey’s goal against their Serie A competition Napoli.
