Jamie Redknapp believes Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey should try to emulate Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard by scoring 20 goals this season.
The Wales international netted his 11th strike of the campaign as the midfielder inspired the Gunners to a 2-0 victory over title rivals Liverpool at Emirates Stadium on Saturday.
And Redknapp feels the 22-year-old playmaker should be aiming to break the 20-goal mark as England internationals Gerrard and Lampard have done in the past for their respective clubs.
“Aaron Ramsey had scored 11 goals in all competitions in his Arsenal career up to this summer,” Redknapp is quoted as saying by Daily Mail.
“This season he has scored 10 already, adding another screamer against Liverpool.
“Now he needs to go for 20, like Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard have done in the past.
“Cesc Fabregas scored 15 league goals in 2009-10, the best return from an Arsenal midfielder in the Premier League era.
“Ramsey has six so far, but he is talented, confident and capable of more. Goal-scoring midfielders are like gold dust.”
