Ramsey is due to leave Arsenal at the end of the season and sign for Serie A champions Juventus after the north London club decided not to renew his contract at The Emirates.
The move has come as something of a surprise to many, given that Ramsey has been a regular fixture in the Arsenal team this season.
Ramsey, 28, has scored three goals and made six assists in 25 Premier League games this term, although he has only started 12 top-flight games under Unai Emery this season.
Now, former Arsenal striker Aliadiere has admitted that he has not been particularly impressed by the Gunners’ decision to let Ramsey leave.
Speaking in an interview with talkSPORT as quoted by Metro, Aliadiere said: “It pains me every time I get to the Emirates and I see lately how well he is performing, knowing he won’t be there next season
“Having such a talent – and he is a team player – he will work for the team, he will do anything for the team before himself. He will see the benefit of the team.
“And just losing a player like this on a free, for me, is criminal.
“Arsenal has become a club which doesn’t attract too many top players because you just don’t really know what direction they are going in.”
Arsenal are currently in fourth place in the Premier League table as they chase Champions League qualification this season.
The north London side finished in sixth place last term under Arsene Wenger before the Frenchman opted to leave The Emirates.
Arsenal will return to Premier League action after the international break when they host Newcastle United at The Emirates on Monday 1 April.
