The Gunners’ longest-serving player is expected to leave the Emirates Stadium at the end of the season when his existing contract expires.
Talks between Ramsey and Arsenal have been ongoing for a number of weeks, but it looked as though they would reach a positive conclusion as the Welsh midfielder favoured staying in North London over joining a new club.
BBC Sport suggests that the 27-year-old even shook hands on the latest offer tabled to him, but Arsenal pulled the plug without saying why.
As things stand Ramsey, who joined Arsenal from Cardiff City in a £4.8m deal a decade ago, will have the option of signing a pre-contract agreement with a foreign club from January 1.
