£110,000-a-week Arsenal star on verge of joining UCL giants on free transfer

Aaron Ramsey’s transfer to Juventus looks to be edging closer, following the news that his entourage is in Italy.

Corriere dello Sport report that Welshman’s representative has flown into Turin, targeting to nail down a deal for the star.

Wales international’s Arsenal contract expires at the end of this campaign and he won’t be extending his stay at the Emirates Stadium.

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri reportedly wants to bring in the midfielder this month, but a summer switch is on the cards.

The report does state that Ramsey’s agent will be in the Italian city, Milan for a few days to speak to Juventus directors about a January move, though, so it has not been totally ruled out.

The longer the saga goes on, the more it seems as though the 28-year-old star’s future lies with the Serie A champions. His Gunners career has been mainly positive, although the star has forever been a key figure in the club.

A fresh challenge is required with Aaron at peak age – it will be interesting to see how the midfielder fares at Bianconeri, should the transfer go through.
