Pirlo backing Juventus move for Arsenal midfielder Ramsey

Aaron Ramsey is free to leave Arsenal in the summer

Aaron Ramsey is free to leave Arsenal in the summer

Earlier today we reported on claims from L'Équipe that PSG were set to offer the 28-year old an 18-month contract once the winter window opens, however Emery has commented on the claims, suggesting Ramsey is focused on Arsenal's upcoming schedule.

Serie A champions Juve are reportedly among the European clubs keen to sign Ramsey, who will be available to conduct negotiations over a free transfer next month.

The Welshman hoped to sign a long-term contract with the Gunners this season which mirrored his importance to the team and rivalled the £350,000-a-week which Mesut Ozil was rewarded with in January.

"Ramsey is a great purchase", Pirlo said on Sky Sport Italia.

'Juventus are preparing another excellent deal. He played yesterday [against Brighton] with a good spirit, like I want, and he helped us - not to win, but he worked well and I'm happy.

However, Juve are likely to face strong competition for Ramsey's signature.

Juventus have been working on a deal to sign the Wales worldwide, according to Sky in Italy, while Bayern Munich have also shown an interest, according to Sky Germany.

Ramsey's contract situation has given PSG encouragement to make a move for him as they might not have to spend big in terms of transfer fees to sign him in January.

"Two months ago we spoke together about his present and future".

"I think it's not easy for him, for Aaron. His focus should be to help us". And then his future is only for him, for his agent.

Those discussions finally took place on the weekend the Gunners drew 2-2 at Crystal Palace, and the player subsequently accepted that this will be his last season in north London following a decade of service.
