Juventus Offer German Midfielder To Arsenal In Order To Sign Ramsey In January: Should The Gunners Comply?

According to a recent report by Calciomercato, Juventus are ready to give up Sami Khedira in order to seal a move for Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey during this January transfer window. The same report has also stated that the Italian giants are looking to do a deal for the Welsh midfielder this month so that they can use him in the UEFA Champions League later this season.

Ramsey is set to depart as a free agent at the end of this campaign when his Arsenal contract comes to an end so Juve could potentially get him for free next summer. However, the Serie A leaders are not willing to wait and are ready to let Khedira join Arsenal in order to persuade Unai Emery to send Ramsey to the Juventus Stadium this month. It is a deal that makes sense for both parties as the two clubs will be getting something out of the deal.

However, there are some question marks on whether Emery needs another central midfielder in his squad. The likes of Matteo Guendouzi, Lucas Torreira and Granit Xhaka have all put in some good performances during this campaign with Mohamed Elneny and Joe Willock providing some added depth in the cup competitions.

Khedira is more of a defensive midfielder than an attacking force at this stage of his career. Hence, the Gunners are better off keeping hold of Ramsey, who is a far more flexible option going forward. The Welsh talent knows the club well and knows how it’s like to play in Emery’s system at the Emirates.

So if it is a toss-up between Khedira and Ramsey, there is no doubt that the Gunners will be better off keeping the latter for the next six months. However, in the long-run, trading for the German midfielder makes more sense as he will be an asset for at least the next couple of years. At 31, Khedira can still play at the highest level for the next few years, so it is something for Emery to think about before deciding on this deal.

The Gunners will do well to keep Ramsey in the short-term, but it might just be a bit more appealing for them to sell him this month in order to bring a former World Cup winner to North London.
