Juventus Ramsey could move Spurs

Tottenham Hotspur are linked with an unlikely move for former Arsenal star Aaron Ramsey this summer.

The 30-year-old’s current club Juventus are keen to drop him off in the summer, due to his huge salaries, reportedly being in the £ 250,000 a week range. It has been rumored that Arsenal are considering a transfer to bring the Welshman home, but recent reports claim that he may even be a target for the other side in north London.

Gazzetta dello Sport has announced that the new Tottenham football manager Fabio Paratici wants Ramsey to follow him from Juventus to Spurs this summer, and the club may be willing to pay in Bianconeri’s 8.5 million pounds.

The midfielder fell out of favor during the entire 2020/21 campaign in Turin and did not participate in any of the last five matches of the season, with the team winning four in its absence and scraping for Champions League qualifiers.

The injury was not due to his lack of impact on the side, as he was selected on the bench for four of those matches, but Andrea Pirlo never turned to him in his time of need. And when Massimiliano Allegri returned to the Juve excavation this summer, it seems that Ramsey’s time in Italy may be over.

The Bianconeri are aiming to trim their bloated group, and they will have to reduce their labor costs if they are to make any serious additions. Ramsey’s gigantic salary makes him one of the club’s priorities to replace his books this season, as they can not afford such a valuable asset to play a minor role.

Paratici was the man responsible for signing Ramsey on a free transfer as early as 2019, and Gazzetta’s reports suggest he may be reunited with Welsh this summer.

However, this would almost certainly damage the midfielder’s relationship with the former club Arsenal, where he spent 11 years and won three FA Cups with the Gunners.

On top of that, even if Ramsey was willing to upset Arsenal fans, he would also need to take a significant pay cut.

Spurs’ highest paid player is, of course, Harry Kane, who earns a reported £ 200,000 a week, and it seems unlikely that chairman Daniel Levy would break his notoriously strict salary structure for a player like Ramsey, who is 30 years old, injured-prone and a former rival.
