With Aaron Ramsey entering the last six months of his contract with Arsenal, it makes economical sense that the Gunners should try to cash in on him during the January transfer window, although the player himself may prefer to wait until the summer to get the best personal deal for himself.
From tomorrow the Welshman will be free to talk to foreign clubs about his future, but the ex-Juventus and Italy star Andrea Pirlo seems convinced that his old club are close to signing the Welsh midfielder. This is what the Italian said about Ramsey on Sky Sports…..
“He is a talented player,” Pirlo told Sky in Italy. “He is a complete player who can do pretty much everything. And he scores a lot.
Pirlo added: “Ramsey is a great purchase.
“Juventus are preparing another excellent deal. He is a strong player and could do very well.”
It is true that Unai Emery has been using Ramsey sparingly (and Ozil!) and this could be because of any background transfer talks that could be distracting the player. Going by Pirlo’s words, it sounds like it is a done deal.
If true, I wonder who we have got lined up to replace him?
