Aaron Ramsey has been told he can leave Juventus and the Italians have been offering him in a cut-price deal, just to get his wages off the books.

Ramsey has been linked with a number of Premier League clubs, particularly Newcastle, but it looks as if he could be on his way to team up with former Arsenal captain, Patrick Vieira, at Selhurst Park, according to Tuttojuve.com.

From what they write, it seems as if Ramsey and Palace still have some way to go before an agreement can be found, however they refer to the deal as ‘closer and closer’.

Speaking to the media at the start of the month, Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri confirmed that former Arsenal midfielder is planning to leave the Serie A club this month.

“Aaron Ramsey’s now set to leave Juventus. We’re working on it,” Allegri said.

“There are no other changes or transfers in our plans, this is 99% sure.”

Ramsey is now 31 and has played just 112 minutes of football this season for Juventus – 98 minutes in Serie A and 14 in the Champions League.

For Wales, however, he has played 331 minutes, despite missing three games due to muscular injuries. He has scored three and assisted one in those games.
