Juventus are reportedly confident of signing Arsenal superstar Aaron Ramsey next summer in a Bosman deal that will set the back by £40 million
According to a report by Daily Mirror, Juventus are hopeful that they will have secured the services of Aaron Ramsey when the summer transfer window opens. The Bianconeri, who are free to negotiate with the Arsenal superstar, are preparing a package worth £40 million to tempt him to join them once his deal at the Emirates expires.
By now, it has become common knowledge that Aaron Ramsey will no longer be an Arsenal player once the season is done and dusted. Although the player has iterated his desire to remain at the club he has served for a decade, his wage demands mean the Gunners are unwilling to offer him a new deal – his current contract is set to expire next summer.
Considering the impact he has created at Arsenal though, the Welshman is unsurprisingly a popular figure in the transfer market, with a gamut of big name clubs interested in signing him. But, Juventus are fancying their chances of snapping Ramsey up in a Bosman deal next summer.
Massimiliano Allegri does boast of a formidable midfield unit in his squad. But, adding Ramsey will bring more dynamism to the Juventus midifeld, with the Welsh international providing a creative outlet in the final third that could complement the qualities of Miralem Pjanic perfectly.
Ramsey is thus, a viable target for Juventus, who are now aiming to leapfrog other suitors in pursuit of the 28-year-old. In addition to a a four-year £140,000-a-week contract, the Bianconeri are also willing to pay the Arsenal superstar a £12 million signing on fee to help make his mind up.
With his Arsenal contract now in its final six months, Ramsey is now free to speak to foreign clubs and negotiate a pre-contract agreement, and Juventus are hopeful that they will get the nod from the player, courtesy their £40 million package.
For now, what remains certain is that Aaron Ramsey’s journey at Arsenal is on its last legs. Whether Juventus can successfully beat the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich to his signature remains to be seen, with six months remaining till he becomes a free agent.
