3 clubs that Aaron Ramsey could join after his Arsenal contract expires
Welsh international midfielder Aaron Ramsey will not be extending his Arsenal contract. The ball is in the court of the Arsenal board now and they have to decide whether to sell Aaron Ramsey in January or let him leave free in the summer. Ramsey joined Arsenal from Cardiff in 2008 and soon established himself as a very creative and hardworking midfielder in the Premier League.
Arsenal had withdrawn the offer they had for Ramsey to sign and it is understood that Unai Emery didn't see him as a player who could carry forward the new playing style which he has brought in at the club. Also, the fact that Ozil and Ramsey are too similar in nature for both to be playing in the starting 11 made this an easy decision for the Gunners.
Ramsey has some great memories at Arsenal with the best ones being scoring winning goals in two FA Cup finals and other spectacular goals. His earlier career was hampered by injuries but he is still young enough to make a major impact at the new destination that he selects.
Juventus have had a spectacular start to the season and many experts believe that they might as well have secured the league title by now as Napoli are 6 points behind and we are not even at the halfway mark in the season. But the ultimate goal for Juventus after winning 7 league titles in a row would be Champions League and they would welcome any world class player who could improve the squad.
They made a great statement of intent by signing Cristiano Ronaldo and are looking to upgrade the squad further. Semi Khedira is past his prime and Blaise Matuidi will soon find it hard to get into the playing 11. Ramsey looks like the perfect replacement of these midfielders in the long run. Given that Miralem Pjanic is also pretty young and an able no 10, Ramsey could get the box-to-box role in the Juventus midfield.
