Juventus Met with Ramsey Agent as New English Suitors Emerge

Aaron Ramsey and his representative had a summit with the Juventus management yesterday. His January departure is in the works. The Bianconeri are looking for a buyer in particular in the Premier League, where the midfielder spent the prime of his career, Goal.com reports.

Contrary to previous reports, Juventus will facilitate his exit but not outright rescind his contract before he finds a new home. Due to multiple physical problems, Ramsey is having his worst season since moving to Turin. The coaching change has not significantly impacted his playing time.

According to The Sun and Calciomercato.com, Everton have opened talks with Juventus and the player’s entourage in recent days. There is some momentum for the transfer to go through. The Bianconeri are not looking to cash in any fee as they would be content with shedding his bloated salary off the books. Ramsey is one of the highest-paid players on the roster as he earns €7M per year.

The Welshman was linked to Wolverhampton in the summer and to Newcastle after the recent ownership change. A clause in his contract has discouraged his farewell in the past, as his agents pocket a bonus in each window he stays put. He is tied to Juventus until 2023. The Welshman has logged just five appearances so far, starting once, for a total of 111 minutes. He has not been available in the past month because of a lingering thigh injury. The 30-year-old joined the Old Lady from Arsenal on a free transfer in 2019.
