What's the rumour?

According to reports, Aaron Ramsey has signed a four-year contract with Juventus that will see him join the Italian champions as a free agent during the summer, ending his 11-year spell with Arsenal.

In case you didn't know...

Ramsey joined Arsenal from Cardiff City in 2008 and has been an important part of the club since then. He has played 256 league games for the Gunners thus far and also helped them win three FA Cup trophies along with two FA Community Shields.

Ramsey won the Arsenal Player of the Season accolade twice and was also the recipient of the Premier League Player of the Month once - in September 2013.

However, his current contract with the club will expire at the end of the current season and he is reportedly looking for a move away from the Londoners.

The heart of the matter

According to the reports by Sky Sports, Ramsey has agreed a pre-contract deal worth £400,000 per week with the Italian champions and will join the Turin-based club on a free transfer when his Arsenal deal expires at the end of the season.

Arsenal were in talks with Ramsey over a new deal at the start of the current season, however, they failed to reach to an agreement, leaving the Welshman free to discuss a move away from north London.

Rumor Rating: 10/10

Sky Sports is one of the most reliable sources when it comes to transfer news and there is no cause to doubt this report.

What's next?

Arsenal will play BATE Borisov in the first leg of their Europa League Round-of-32 tie next, whereas Juventus are scheduled to play against Frosinone FC at Allianz Stadium on February 16.
