Report Indicates That Arsenal Midfielder Has Agreed To Join Juventus Next Summer: A Big Blow For The Gunners?

According to a recent report by Sky Sports, Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has agreed to join Juventus at the end of this campaign when his contract at the Emirates Stadium comes to an end.

The same report claims that the Welsh international will have a medical on Sunday and the transfer is set to be finalised after Juve’s  Italian Super Cup match against AC Milan next week.

Ramsey has failed to nail down a starting berth in Unai Emery’s first-team this season as he has struggled to find consistency with his performances on the pitch. He has featured in 25 matches for the Gunners this term, scoring three goals while grabbing seven assists across all competitions.

Despite having a decent record in this campaign, Ramsey has been guilty of failing to deliver against the bigger teams this season. So his departure might not affect Emery’s first-team plans too much, although, it would still be quite a bitter blow for the North London giants and their hopes of challenging for major silverware in the coming years.

The midfield trio of Matteo Guendouzi, Lucas Torreira and Granit Xhaka have all put in some eye-catching displays for Arsenal during this campaign with the likes of Mohamed Elneny and Joe Willock providing some added depth in the cup competitions. Hence, Emery has a lot of options in midfield so he could afford to lose Ramsey’s services and move on with his rebuilding project at North London.

However, it could be wise to bring in a world-class replacement for the Welshman so that they can bridge the gap to Liverpool and Manchester City at the top of the Premier League. Ramsey’s acquisition will undoubtedly bolster Massimiliano Allegri’s midfield options at the Juventus Stadium, and there is no doubt that they are getting the better end of the deal.

The fact that the Welsh talent is going to leave on a free transfer means that the Gunners will once again be on the wrong end of a transfer dealing. Keeping hold of their star players is something that every top club in European football has managed to do but in the case of Arsenal, it’s been a continuing trend which should be put to an end as soon as possible.
