Aaron Ramsey: Rangers are leading the hunt to sign Juventus midfielder on loan with option to buy | Soccer News
Rangers are leading the hunt to sign Juventus midfielder Aaron Ramsey on deadline day, according to Sky in Italy.
The Scottish club are in talks with Juventus on a loan deal with an option to sign him permanently this summer.
A number of Premier League clubs are considering a move for Ramsey in this window.
However, we’re told Crystal Palace and Wolves are focusing their attentions elsewhere.
Burnley are interested but believe Ramsey is destined for another club.
Sources have also mentioned Borussia Dortmund as a possible destination for Ramsey – but they are not currently pursuing a deal, according to Sky in Germany.
Sky Sports News was told Juventus were prepared to continue paying Ramsey’s high wages to facilitate a move.
Sky in Italy have previously reported that Juve will only pay part of his salary.
It is understood that any player signed by Rangers would have to adapt to their salary structure.
The Welsh midfielder has made just five appearances for Max Allegri’s side this season.
Can Ramsey still cut it?
Sky Sports’ Jack Wilkinson:
Ramsey was widely applauded for taking the leap to play overseas, and it was a move that was almost certainly justified.
Although he didn’t quite reach the levels he achieved in his final season at Arsenal, Ramsey’s first two campaigns at Juventus under Maurizio Sarri and then Andrea Pirlo were successful and saw the Welsh win the Serie A, Coppa Italia and Italian Super Cup titles.
However, problems have arisen this season under Massimiliano Allegri, mainly in the form of injuries, which have limited him to just three Serie A appearances this season.
In fact, Ramsey has missed 17 games this season, as many as in his first two seasons combined at Juventus.
Ramsey will undoubtedly look back on his time at Juventus, the success he enjoyed and the opportunity to discover a new football culture, with fondness, but for a 31-year-old player, and with a good part of his career. remaining, he cannot appear as rarely as he did.
With Juventus expected to take Ramsey’s big salary off the wage bill, leaving the club could suit both the club and the player.
A clearer indication of the prowess Ramsey still possesses and his eventual suitability for Rangers can be seen by studying his performances for Wales since moving to Juventus, rather than his struggles last season at Turin.
Remarkably, Ramsey has scored more goals for his country, 13, since joining Juventus than he actually has for Juventus, and this despite playing three times as many Serie A games. .
In terms of name and reputation alone, three-time FA Cup winner Ramsey would certainly sprinkle stardust on Giovani van Bronckhorst’s side, who head into 2022 in position to retain the Premiership title Scottish.
But with hours to go before the January window closes, Rangers need to consider whether Ramsey’s form for Juventus and Wales warrants adjusting their wage structure and whether Ramsey is a calculated gamble worth taking. To be taken.
