Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey is to sign a pre-contract agreement with Bayern Munich, according to the Independent.
The 27-year-old is leaving the Emirates at the end of the season after the Gunners surprisingly withdrew their offer of a new deal.
Premier League clubs Liverpool and Chelsea both showed an interest in the Wales star but it is now thought that the Bundesliga champions have made a concrete move.
The German giants, who have won the league title six years on the bounce, feel that the playmaker is at the peak of his career and is a no-brainer on a free transfer.
Following team-mate Mesut Ozil’s club-record £350,000 per week contract in January, it is thought Ramsey was after a wage in the region of £200,000 per week.
However, the Gunners have decided they want to invest that money into other areas of Unai Emery’s squad after a good start to the Spaniard’s reign.
Bayern are expected to make the ex-Cardiff City player a lower offer but a higher signing on fee to make up for it.
Ramsey, who joined the Emirates outfit in 2008, has won three FA Cups with the north London side.
