The Wales international left Arsenal for Serie A in 2019, but the 30-year-old looks set to leave Juventus this summer amid changes in Turin and a return to the Premier League appears his most likely option.

When Aaron Ramsey left Arsenal for Juventus in 2019, few begrudged the Wales international his switch to the Italian champions.

After 10 years at the Emirates Stadium, in which he made 369 appearances, scoring a number of crucial goals and winning three FA Cups, he took advantage of his contract situation to secure a lucrative switch to Turin.

Similar to Wales teammate Gareth Bale, the former Cardiff youngster wanted a new experience after a decade in North London.

The huge salary and signing-on fee on offer from the Bianconeri were undoubtedly a major bonus, but the biggest thing for Ramsey was that new challenge and a chance to compete for major titles – as well as returning to the Champions League.

In his debut season, he won Serie A, making 35 appearances in all competitions under Maurizio Sarri.

But the 61-time Wales international – a vital component in their run to the Euro 2016 semi-finals – has seen less action under Andrea Pirlo this term.

Now, amid a change in policy with a side skewing younger after a push to bring in the likes of Federico Chiesa, Arthur, Dejan Kulusevski, and Weston McKennie, he has been somewhat pushed to the sidelines.

At the age of 30, Ramsey has made 26 appearances in all competitions this season, but has played the full 90 minutes only once, scoring just twice.

With Juve tied into Cristiano Ronaldo’s mega-money deal and dealing with the effects of the coronavirus pandemic, they’re keen to get Ramsey’s £400k-per-week off the books – despite Pirlo and Ramsey actually having a good relationship – and are open to a summer exit.

But that may well be easier said than done.
