Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has insisted Aaron Ramsey can become better than Cesc Fabregas.
The Frenchman admitted it was strange to see Fabregas starring for Chelsea, but claimed he has no regrets over not bringing the Spaniard back to the Gunners.
"I have no regret about that at all. My regret is that he left us," Wenger said in his pre-match press conference ahead the game against Everton.
"It was strange (seeing Fabregas play for Chelsea), but you have to accept that professional players move from club to club.
"It was difficult for him to leave us, but after that you accept he can move to some different clubs. Of course it was a bit strange, but he had a good game."
Wenger explained that Fabregas’ departure has opened the door for Ramsey and the Welshman has the potential to become even better than the Spaniard.
"What is good in life is that someone moves out and someone else takes over and he has developed," he continued.
"Ramsey has a different style to Fabregas, but he has developed into a player with huge potential.
“There is more coming out of Ramsey. He is younger than Cesc and the potential is there to get more out of him."
Wenger also suggested that his transfer activity in the final few days of this summer window will be focused on trying to sign defensive players.
"We listen to the names (being linked with Arsenal)," he added, with a smile.
"Sometimes I look to see who we buy in the media.
"At this moment, we are in an emergency case. We have the players we want. We are open to any opportunity in the transfer window who can strengthen our defensive department in quality and number.
"I am open to do it (sign players), but it has to be linked with the needed quality. I tell you something. 20 top clubs in the world, they look all for the same positions, so it is not necessarily out there."
