Juventus chief: We 'really like' Aaron Ramsey

Ramsey said in October that he thought he had agreed a new deal with Arsenal only for negotiations with the club to break down but he insisted that these scenarios are an inevitability in football and that he just has to carry on playing his football.

The January transfer window represents the final chance for Arsenal to receive a transfer fee for Ramsey but the club reportedly want to keep the midfielder for the remainder of the campaign. Mesut Ozil (knee) leads the list of expected absentees and while Hector Bellerin (calf), Nacho Monreal (hamstring) and Konstantinos Mavropanos (groin) are training at some level, none are likely to be risked at Bloomfield Road. We want to play and have positive things with our supporters in this way. He's also created 12 scoring opportunities so far, the second highest in the team, after Ozil. Juventus would get a highly sought-after midfielder who still has plenty to offer - if they can find the right position for him.

Ramsey has scored one goal and has made six assists in the Premier League this season to contribute to their top-four challenge despite uncertainty surrounding his future.

Santi Cazorla, Jack Wilshere and Lucas Perez all left the Emirates last summer but the signings of Bernd Leno, Sokratis, Matteo Guendouzi, Stephan Lichtsteiner and Torreira have all added to the club's wage bill.

But according to Sky Sports, Ramsey's favours a move to Juventus ahead of their European rivals.

'At the moment he's an Arsenal player, certainly we aren't the only ones following him'.

Youngster Emile Smith Rowe who has impressed in the Europa League and Carabao Cup remains sidelined by a hip problem.
