Aaron Ramsey is set to leave Juventus in January, according to his manager, but it probably won’t be for Arsenal.
Speaking to the media this week, Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri confirmed that former Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey 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.”
Sky Sports’ Francesco Cosatti reported in November that they knew Juventus were ready to listen to offers for the former Gunner in the January transfer window.
The winter window is seen as a pivotal one for player and club, with the chance for Ramsey to refresh his career and Juventus to replace him with a different profile in midfield.
Yet the same reporter claimed there are currently no rumours in Italy about a return to England and the Premier League.
From Arsenal’s side of things, there’s also radio silence. None of the club correspondents for the various news outlets have even hinted at a comeback for the midfielder. That won’t stop the fans from getting excited about it though.
Ramsey’s departure did feel somewhat inevitable. More than two years after leaving Arsenal for Juventus, he was still yet to find a place in the team with his new club.
The 30-year-old has only played 112 minutes of club football this season, despite being fit to make the squad 11 times.
On international duty, it seems to be a different story. The midfielder has three goals and an assist in his 331 minutes for his country since the start of the season.
