AARON RAMSEY'S Arsenal contract offer was pulled as a result of a "gathering of strategies" according to club head of football Raul Sanllehi.
The Welshman, 27, is set to either leave the club at the end of the season or for a cut-price deal in January.

The midfielder has generated interest from both Bayern Munich and Juventus in the meantime though, with Europe's top clubs convinced he can still be a star in the Champions League, after lighting up Euro 2016 two years ago for Wales.
The former Barcelona staff member said he was reluctant to talk about individual players.
But he was happy to go full David Brent and deliver management speak instead of speak about Ramsey's situation.
Sanllehi said: "I would like to avoid talking about personal players. It is more of a gathering of strategies and what our ideas are.
