Tottenham Hotspur are closely monitoring the situation of former Arsenal star Aaron Ramsey, who could be sold by Juventus in the summer.
According to a report from Tutto Juve, Tottenham Hotspur are following Juventus midfielder, Aaron Ramsey, closely as they ponder over a transfer in the summer window, with the Italian champions open to selling the ex-Arsenal midfielder.
The 30-year-old joined Juventus in the summer of 2019 on a free transfer after his contract with Tottenham’s arch-rivals, Arsenal, expired. Since moving to Italy, however, the Welshman has not been able to carve out a place for himself in the starting lineup at the Allianz Stadium.
In over eighteen months with the Bianconeri, Ramsey has featured just 38 times in the Serie A. And although his playing time has seen improvement under Andrea Pirlo in the ongoing campaign, Juventus are ready to offload him in the upcoming transfer window in order get his lofty wages off the books and generate some funds so that they can sign Manuel Locatelli.
This development has alerted teams from the Premier League, with Tottenham among the clubs keeping a close watch on the Wales international’s situation in Turin. While Jose Mourinho did bolster his midfield unit with the addition of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg last summer, the Lilywhites could certainly do with another central midfielder.
Moussa Sissoko has been the preferred starter alongside Hojbjerg in the middle of the park for Tottenham. But, the Frenchman does not possess the requisite quality on the ball and will soon be turning 32. In addition, Harry Winks has been in and out of the side under Mourinho, while Giovani Lo Celso has struggled with injuries.
So, bringing in another midfielder who can operate alongside Hojbjerg and also make contributions in the attacking sense would be a smart move for the north London outfit. To that end, Tottenham have been heavily linked with a move for RB Leipzig star Marcel Sabitzer, while they are also keeping tabs on Borussia Monchengladbach’s Florian Neuhaus.
Now, as per the aforementioned report, Tottenham are also monitoring Ramsey’s situation at Juventus, but could potentially face competition from fellow Premier League club Wolves. In addition, the Welshman’s past association with Tottenham’s rivals Arsenal, where he spent the majority of his career, making over 350 appearances, could be a stumbling block in any deal.
Juventus, for their part, would sanction a sale for a transfer fee in the region of €10-€15 million deal. It now remains to be seen if Tottenham do make an attempt to sign the former Arsenal midfielder come summer.
