Aaron Ramsey can play anywhere in Europe, according to his international manager Ryan Giggs.

The midfielder is being linked with a move away from London and has been given limited game time at Arsenal since he failed to come to terms with the club over a new contract earlier this season. 

Ramsey has started only six times in the Premier League this campaign, and Giggs wants to see him get more minutes to prepare him for Wales duty.

Via Sky Sports, the former Manchester United winger wrote: "He won't be short of offers as he's a talented player. He's one of those players that, if he plays a full season, will get 10-15 goals from midfield and that's a very attractive player to have in any side.

"He's friends with Gareth Bale so obviously he'll be able to tell him what it's like to play abroad and Aaron's certainly got the talent to play anywhere in Europe but that will totally be his decision.

"As long as he's playing regular football, that's all I really care about."

The 27-year-old has been linked with Premier League rivals such as Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United as he looks set to leave on a free transfer this summer.

Barcelona have also been linked with the playmaker who has been compared to the likes of Andres Iniesta and Xavi in the past.

Ramsey's club manager, Unai Emery, has told him to focus on his football, but Giggs is hopeful he will be able to break back into the Gunners first team.

"Of course you want your players settled but from my point of view it's just a case of him playing regularly, that's all you want as an international manager." Giggs continued.

"Wherever that may be is obviously out of my hands but I just want him playing.

"I've been asked a lot about Aaron Ramsey leaving Arsenal next summer and all I can say is that when he comes to camp with us he's always ready, he's a great professional and this contract situation has never affected him so far."
