Juventus leading the race to sign Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey

Aaron Ramsey - Arsenal

Juventus are reportedly ahead of AC Milan and Inter Milan in the race to sign Arsenal star when the transfer window re-opens in January.

According to Italian publication CalcioMercato, the tabloid claims the Old Lady have held conversation with the Wales international’s representatives via their Sporting Director Fabio Paratici ahead of a January move.

Juve’s interest is justifiable as it’s comes in the wake of Ramsey’s refusal to sign a new contract offer with the Gunners due to his high wage demand.

It’s believed the Welshman is eyeing a mouth-watering €10m-per-year pay hike on his current deal which Inter and AC Milan can not match which explains why Juve are leading the race the sign him.

The Gunners are however not looking forward to extending the 28-year-old’s contract. Ramsey has been on a long-term contract with the Premiere League club until the final year of his contract this season. Ramsey will be free to sign for any club willing to pay his fee when the transfer window re-opens in January.

Ramsey to Juventus will be a cool deal only if they could pull through for the price, and would add extra boost to their defence.
