Aaron Ramsey

Arsenal midfielder, Aaron Ramsey, has agreed a five-year deal with Juventus worth £36m and will join the Italian champions on a free transfer at the end of the season, the UK Guardian reports.

The midfielder has been discussing a move for weeks and will leave the Emirates after 10 years at the club.

Ramsey will be paid around £120,000 a week (£7.2m a season), a drop from the £140,000 Arsenal offered him, before withdrawing the deal.

It will however make him Juventus’s second-highest earner behind Cristiano Ronaldo, but ahead Paulo Dybala and Douglas Costa.

Juventus manager, Max Allegri, and the director Fabio Paratici are huge admirers of Ramsey, who is likely to be given a place in the Juventus starting XI, most likely playing with Miralem Pjanic and Blaise Matuidi in a three-man midfield.

He is likely to replace one of Emre Can, Rodrigo Bentancur and Sami Khedira, with the latter possibly leaving the club in the summer.

Ramsey signed for Arsenal from Cardiff for £4.8m. He has played 252 top-flight games for the club, scoring 52 goals. He won three FA Cups, scoring the winning goal in the 2014 and 2017 finals.
