Juventus Outcast Ramsey Aims for January Move to EPL

Juventus misfit Aaron Ramsey has reportedly set his sights on a Premier League return as he aims to get his career back on track ahead of the upcoming World Cup play-offs. According to the Daily Mail, the Wales international is eager to sever ties with the Bianconeri and head back to England’s top-flight as early as January.

And while he continues to struggle at club level, Ramsey has been Wales’ key player during the ongoing World Cup qualifiers. The ex-Arsenal star has scored three goals in his last three international outings, including a brace in his side’s 5-1 drubbing of Group E minnows Belarus on Saturday.

Ramsey will be the essential component of Rob Page’s side when they tackle group juggernauts Belgium in a crunch meeting on Tuesday. The Dragons hold a healthy three-point lead over the third-placed Czech Republic going into the qualification finale.

Hence, Wales will secure the coveted play-off spot as long as they can avoid defeat against Roberto Martinez’s side in Cardiff. Keen to help his national team reach their first World Cup finals since 1958, Ramsey is looking to depart Juventus this winter as part of his efforts to secure regular first-team football elsewhere.

The 30-year-old has emerged as a transfer target for Newcastle United and Tottenham, with 19 months left to run on his current contract in Turin. The prospect of the January exit is looming in the forefront of Ramsey’s mind as he has already displayed his frustration with the training programs at the Allianz Stadium.

He has reportedly identified Massimiliano Allegri’s methods as the main culprit for his inability to perform consistently. As a result, Ramsey will push ahead for a winter move, handing the Premier League sides an upper hand over other potential suitors.
