Aaron Ramsey transfer: Andrea Pirlo believes Arsenal midfielder would be a great signing for Juventus
Aaron Ramsey would be a great signing for Juventus, says the club’s former midfielder Andrea Pirlo.
Arsenal man Ramsey is on course to leave the Emirates Stadium at the end of the season following the club’s decision to withdraw its offer of a contract renewal earlier this season.
However, Ramsey appears to have numerous options for his next move and in January he is available to conduct negotiations about a transfer with clubs outside the Premier League.
Serie A giants Juve, who completed a similar deal to sign Emre Can on a free transfer from Liverpool last summer, are one of the favourites to land Ramsey.
“Ramsey is a great purchase,” football legend Pirlo told Sky Sports Italia (translated via Football Italia)
“Juventus are preparing another excellent deal. He is a strong player and could do very well.”
Paris Saint-Germain are also reportedly looking at Ramsey with the Ligue 1 giants reportedly being recommended him by former Gunners boss Arsene Wenger.
Ramsey, 28, has been an Arsenal player for ten years and has made 16 Premier League appearances this campaign.
He played a huge role in helping the Gunners turn the game around in the 4-2 win over north London rivals Tottenham earlier this month.

But Arsenal boss Unai Emery believes there is no turning back on the decision to let Ramsey go.
Emery said: “Two months ago we spoke together about his present and future. I think it was a very good conversation.
“I said to you also here in the press conference that I want his focus only on the team, on giving us his performances.
“His focus is positive for us, it helps us. He needs to think about his future, for his family and for him. If he plays like [in the north London derby], it’s the best for him and the best for us.”
Arsenal are reportedly weighing up an £18million move for Sevilla midfielder Ever Banega as a replacement for Ramsey.
