Wolverhampton Wanderers are interested in signing Juventus midfielder Aaron Ramsey before the Premier League season begins. The former Arsenal man looks set to leave the Italian giants in his quest to get more first-team football.
As per Calciomercato, Wolves have laid out an offer for the Welshman, but he doesn’t seem to be too keen on it. Ramsey is reportedly not convinced about joining the Premier League side. Juve want to get rid of the 30-year-old so that they can bring back Miralem Pjanic from Barcelona.
Aaron Ramsey has been with the Italian side since 2019, having joined them from Arsenal on a free transfer. The Wales international has two years remaining on his current contract with the club. He has made 65 appearances for the club in his two-year spell, scoring six goals and assisting six times.
Aaron Ramsey: A good midfield option for the club?
Aaron Ramsey’s spell with Juventus has not gone to plan as he has been used as a squad player and mainly been used off the bench. The midfielder showed at the Euros that he is still capable of playing at a high level and can influence games with his strong dribbling and finishing.
The experienced midfielder has the ability to drive at defences with the ball, link with attackers, and often finds himself in the right place in the final third. He is also a hard-working team player who presses high up the pitch and also drops back to offer defensive cover in midfield. Ramsey likes to play in the hole behind the main striker, but is equally capable of playing as a central midfielder or out wide on the left.
He would be a sensational addition to the Wolves side and could be a key man for new manager Bruno Lage. Their first-choice midfielders last season were Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho and Leander Dendoncker, but the inclusion of Ramsey would give the manager something different. Neves is a passer who can spread the ball and dictate the tempo of the game, while Dendoncker likes to play deeper as a defensive midfielder. Moutinho is still a potent player at the age of 34, but can’t play week in, week out.
Aaron Ramsey would add experience to the Wolves midfield and also bring goals from the middle of the park, which they lacked last season. He has the experience of playing at a top level and is a leader as well. The Welshman could slot right into the starting XI, perhaps playing alongside Neves.
