West Ham United To Rival Everton For Ex-Arsenal Midfielder: What Will He Add To Moyes’ Side?

Must Read

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, Calciomercato mentioned that West Ham United are set to rival Everton for ex-Arsenal and Juventus midfielder Aaron Ramsey. However, it has been revealed that the Hammers are yet to launch an official bid for the Welsh talent.

Ramsey’s Diminishing Influence In Italian Football

Ramsey has played a sporadic role at the Allianz Stadium so far, as he has only made four appearances for Juve this season. The Wales international did well to appear in 30 matches for the Turin giants in the previous campaign, scoring two goals and creating five assists in all competitions.

The 30-year-old gave a good account of himself by averaging 1.0 tackles, 1.1 shots, 1.4 key passes and 0.5 dribbles per 90 minutes in the 2020-21 Serie A season. He has even been accurate when distributing the ball from midfield based on his pass completion rate of 87.1% in top-flight football (stats via whoscored).

The Caerphilly-born sensation’s current contract with Juventus runs out in the summer of 2023. However, the player could be tempted with an opportunity to seal a move to the London Stadium in search of more first-team opportunities over the next few seasons.

What Will Ramsey Add To David Moyes’ Team?

Ramsey is a moderately paced midfielder who can get stuck in with some solid tackles to make life difficult for the opposition at the centre of the park. He has a good work rate and is not shy about having a shot at goal when afforded time and space in and around the opponent’s penalty box.

The 67-time Wales international can even engineer a few clear-cut chances for his teammates in the attacking third of the pitch. However, his prior injury record makes him a risky option for the East London outfit to pursue this January or at the end of this campaign.

Even then, West Ham should think about launching an official bid to secure the services of Ramsey as he will undeniably add a lot of quality to their midfield department. Even though frequent injuries have hampered the Welshman’s progress in the past, Ramsey has got the experience to prove his worth in the Premier League once again if the Hammers manage to get him on board next year.
