Can Arsenal win the title?

Aaron Ramsey's scintillating form for Arsenal has caught the attention of Barcelona, with the Catalan club's scouts present at the last four matches the Welshman has played in.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the Spanish champions are re-evaluating a squad which is showing signs of wear and tear after losing two games in a week this month.

Club president Sandro Rosell is reportedly taking stock with his staff of where to strengthen, and Ramsey's form has put him on the top of Barcelona's new wishlist.

Barcelona have dispatched scouts to watch Ramsey in Arsenal's last four games, and also kept an eye on him in action for Wales against Belgium and Macedonia last month.

Wenger has stated he would not even sell the Welshman for £50million, while Ramsey is said to be completely loyal to Arsenal, owing to the club's support during his horrific leg break three years ago, which makes a potential switch to La Liga look unlikely at this stage.

He will also no doubt be aware of the difficulties former Gunners captain Cesc Fabregas has had since joining the Catalan giants, whose return to the Emirates has still not been ruled out by Arsenal.
