Everton Are ‘Serious’ About Recruiting This Serie A Midfielder: What Will He Add To Ancelotti’s Side?

A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent report, Il BiancoNero has mentioned that Everton are ‘serious’ about recruiting Juventus midfielder Aaron Ramsey this summer. It is understood that the Toffees are showing interest in bringing the Welsh midfield ace back to the Premier League but the player has his heart set on a move to his former club Arsenal during the summer transfer period (via Il BiancoNero).

Ramsey’s Up And Down Season In Italian Football

The 30-year-old is experiencing an inconsistent season at the Allianz Stadium as he has struggled to perform at a high level week in week out. Ramsey has featured in 30 matches for the Turin outfit this term, netting two goals and securing five assists in multiple competitions.

The Wales international has failed to be consistent with his all-around contributions in midfield. Ramsey is averaging 1.0 tackles, 1.1 shots, 1.4 key passes and 0.5 dribbles per game in Serie A this season. He has even distributed the ball with a lot of conviction, as evidenced by his pass completion rate of 87.1% in the Italian first division (stats via whoscored).

Ramsey has only got a handful of years left in his locker to play at top gear, so this summer could be his last chance to seal a big move to another top-flight side in Europe. Everton could be an ideal destination for him to consider this summer as he will be guaranteed regular playing time under Carlo Ancelotti’s stewardship.

What Will The Wales International Add To Carlo Ancelotti’s Team?

Ramsey is a hard-working midfielder who can do a bit of everything at the centre of the park. He is decent at disrupting the opposition’s rhythm in the game and has a wide range of passes in his locker. The 61-time Wales international can contribute by scoring and setting up his fair share of goals from midfield. However, he can sometimes be inconsistent in terms of his end product in the attacking end of the field.

Ramsey will add plenty of energy and dynamism to Ancelotti’s midfield department and could use his experience well to help Everton challenge for a top-four spot in the Premier League over the next few seasons. Plus, he knows English football well from his time at Arsenal, so Ancelotti can expect him to make a seamless transition if he can agree on a deal to sign the player this summer.

At 30, the Welsh midfield ace could be a useful squad player for the Merseyside club. However, Ancelotti might struggle to add him to his squad if his former employers, Arsenal decide to move in for him in this off-season. Either way, a midfielder of Ramsey’s experience and skillset will undeniably add more bite and steel to Everton’s first-team and could even help them end their long wait for a major trophy in the coming seasons.
