Arsenal's Aaron Ramsey edging closer to Juventus move

Adjust Comment Print

Ramsey is out of contract this summer after Arsenal withdrew their offer of an extension for football and financial reasons.

The Welshman, who started against Blackpool in the FA Cup on Saturday, is expected to leave the Gunners when his contract expires at the end of the season, with Italian giants Juventus prepared to make the midfielder their third highest earner behind Cristiano Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala.

"He's a great player, he's been at great levels for years and plays in a great team", Paratici said. Juve are on him. This is all to be verified. Arsenal midfielder Ramsey is free to talk terms with other clubs this month as he is out-of-contract in the summer, and he has not been short of suitors. He'd tell me marvellous stories about him, Omar Sivori and the wise Giampiero Boniperti.

"He worked very well against Liverpool".

"On Tuesday [against Fulham], he scored when he played 15 minutes, and he gave a good performance". I want that from him, and also he needs to look at his future.

Arsenal would lose a lot of attacking impetus and dynamism; injuries have reduced Khedira's effectiveness and Unai Emery would not want to be lumbered with a fading force.

Juventus are the front-runners, with the Italian champions making it clear to Ramsey that they want him to bolster a midfield that already contains Miralem Pjanic, Sami Khedira, Emre Can, Blaise Matuidi, Federico Bernardeschi and Rodrigo Bentancur.

"It's hard to find ways to improve when you have such a strong squad, but we'll be vigilant when it comes to opportunities on the market' is what you often heard from Beppe Marotta when he was asked about Juventus' plans when a transfer window opened".

"Maybe we can [bring new players in]". Several of Europe's bihitters are known to be interested, with Bayern Munich, Barcelona, Real Madrid and the two Milan sides all speculated to have been circling overhead at one point or another.
