It is understood his boyhood dream was to play for Barcelona but despite preliminary talks that option will not be pursued.
The midfielder has been discussing a move for weeks and reached an agreement on Wednesday that will leave Arsenal after 10 years at the club.
The Welsh worldwide is not short of offers as the BBC claim he has been approached by a number of Premier League clubs - including Liverpool - as well as European giants such as Juventus, PSG, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Inter Milan.
The BBC reporter adds: "However, although there is still a possibility the situation might change, it is nearly certain the former Cardiff player will go overseas".
However, as it stands the Arsenal star is leaning towards going overseas and the BBC claims Ramsey is ready to undergo a medical and sign a pre-contract as soon as he makes a final decision over his new club.
Ramsey will only be second to Cristiano Ronaldo but ahead of conspicuous stars such as paolo Dybala and Douglas Costa in the wage scheme.
Earlier this season, the Gunners announced that the club would not be offering the Welshman a new deal so an exit has always looked likely.
The two parties were close to finalising an agreement but no physical contract was on the table when the club made a decision to pull out.

The Packers fired McCarthy after a surprising home loss to the Arizona Cardinals on December 2, ending a 13-year run in Green Bay. All those options, and probably many more, are likely on the table for McCarthy as he awaits his return to the sidelines in 2020.
Ultimately Arsenal were not prepared to meet his salary demands, with some among the hierarchy regretting the new deal given to Mesut Ozil a year ago, worth £350,000 per week, and determined to avoid a repeat.
Unai Emery also appeared to confirm Ramsey would stay for the remainder of the campaign.
Having joined from his hometown club Cardiff City for £4.8 million in 2008, Ramsey has scored 62 goals in 354 appearances for Arsenal and won the FA Cup in 2014, 2015 and 2017.
But the former PSG boss quickly realised that Ramsey did not fit his style of play or formation, with the midfielder making it clear that he wanted to play as a roaming number eight, running onto the ball high up the pitch.
It's been known for some time that Ramsey is leaving the club.
"In the last match I was very happy with him".
"My idea and focus, I say to him every day, is with us", said Arsenal's manager, per Sky Sports.
"His future is individually for him, for his family, his agent". He asked in Blackpool to play, he said: "Coach, I want to play".
