Tottenham Enter the Race for Ex-Arsenal Midfield Maestro

Tottenham Hotspur are interested to land Juventus midfielder Aaron Ramsey at North London in the upcoming summer transfer window. The former Arsenal midfielder joined Juventus in the summer of 2019 for free. However, Ramsey hasn’t had a great time in the Bianconeri shirt.

The 30-year-old Welsh midfield general played 18 games in Serie A this season and managed to score just twice. Over the two seasons, Ramsey made only 23 starts in the league, scoring only 5 goals and assisting 5 times.

The Old Lady of Turin have decided to rebuild their squad next season under Andrea Pirlo. And they want to sell a few players who are on a big wage to pump their transfer budget. The Juventus board identified Ramsey as one of those outgoing players.

Tottenham want Ramsey to solve the attacking-midfielder problem

The Lilywhites have had problems in the creative-midfielder role. Dele Alli couldn’t manage to show his top quality and for that reason, he has fallen out of favour under Jose Mourinho. Alli managed only two starts in this season in the Premier League but couldn’t score or assist for Mourinho’s side. 

The recent off form of the 24-year-old English midfielder made Tottenham go and search for an attacking-minded midfielder. And they believe Ramsey is the perfect player in that position as he has the experience to play in the Premier League.

Aaron Ramsey has a contract with Juventus until June 2023. Tottenham might have to spend around €20-30 million for his services. Juventus want to buy Paul Pogba for next season so they want to sell players to fund his transfer money. So Pirlo is willing to sell Adrian Rabiot, Aaron Ramsey, Paulo Dybala in the summer.

It will be interesting to see if Tottenham can convince Ramsey to play in the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium or if he remains loyal to his old side Arsenal and turns down the proposal to play in the Lilywhite shirt.
