Ramsey – I’m close to my best
Aaron Ramsey feels he is getting back to his best form ahead of his return to Arsenal next week.
The Wales midfielder has not featured for the Gunners since suffering a horrific double leg break against Stoke almost a year ago.
Ramsey has spent the past month at boyhood club Cardiff following a loan stint at Nottingham Forest as he works his way back to full match fitness.
However, Gunners boss Wenger will recall the 20-year-old after the Bluebirds’ Championship clash with Hull on Saturday.
And Ramsey has revealed he is in good shape as he prepares to make his comeback with the north Londoners.
“I’m getting back to my best form,” said Ramsey in the Daily Express.
“This is what these games have been for. I’m back in the swing of things now and I have got better and stronger with every game.
“Hopefully that can continue now and I can get back to where I was and be even better as quickly as I possibly can.”
Ramsey, who scored during Cardiff’s 2-0 victory over Leicester on Tuesday, feels the third-placed Bluebirds could be plying their trade alongside Arsenal in the Premier League next season.
“I wanted to score before I left and I’m glad it came at Cardiff,” he added.
“We needed the win and it has put us back in a good position. There’s no doubt Cardiff have a great chance of promotion. There’s a great group of players with plenty of quality.
“The league is quite tight and there are a lot of teams who can grab the first two places, but if Cardiff go about it in the right manner and play the football they can they have a great opportunity.”
