Aaron Ramsey: Juventus leading race to sign Arsenal and Wales midfielder

Arsenal midfielder, Aaron Ramsey, has agreed a five-year deal with Juventus worth £36m and will join the Italian champions on a free transfer at the end of the season, the UK Guardian reports.

As reported earlier, the Welsh midfielder has been in the Arsenal since 2008, and his current deal will expire in summer 2019.

The breakdown in negotiations has attracted the interest of several big clubs such as Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain, among others.

Once Ramsey's choice is made, he is expected to sign a pre-contract agreement and undergo a medical this month. He will be fondly remembered by Arsenal fans, most of whom wish he wasn't going.

It will however make him Juventus's second-highest earner behind Cristiano Ronaldo, but ahead Paulo Dybala and Douglas Costa.

Wales global Ramsey joined Arsenal from Cardiff in 2008 and has scored 52 goals in his 252 Premier League games.

Juventus now sit at the top of the Serie A table but Ramsey's addition could give the squad more depth in the midfield; perhaps enough to make a serious bid for a Champions League title.

"My idea and focus, I say to him every day, is that we need his performance for us", said Emery.

"In the last match I was very happy with him".

Chelsea's policy is to never sell when a player's perceived value is low, so instead they organise a loan first.
